The best place to experience Kaua‘i’s locavore lifestyle is at one of the many sunshine (farmer’s) markets. There you’ll find fresh tropical fruits such as pineapple, apple bananas and papaya – and, when they’re in season, mango, lychee and starfruit, as well as farm-fresh vegetables, and vibrantly colored tropical flowers. In addition to fresh produce, keep an eye out for the wonderful homemade products such as Hawaiian salts and seasonings, honey, jams, coffee, ginger beer, sweet treats and more. For the biggest selection of products, we highly recommend theWednesday Culinary Market at the Shops at Kukui‘ula and the Saturday Market located across the highway from the Kaua‘i Community College.
