Event Finds: East Oahu
KCC Farmer's Market
Get a taste for Hawaii’s local flavor at the KCC (Kapiolani Community College) Farmer's Market – considered by many as the best and largest farmer’s market on Oahu. Branch out and check out a unique selection of locally grown and prepared foods, from fresh fruits and vegetables (Mangoes and lychee? Yes, please!) to mind-blowing banh mi and melt-in-your-mouth mochi.
Held every Saturday from 7:30 a.m. – 11 a.m., this farmer’s market gives visitors a bite-sized sample of Hawaii’s foodie fare. Bring your reusable tote to hold your haul of Kahuku papaya, piping hot lumpia, grilled abalone, one-of-a-kind snacks, baked goods, seasonings and more -- perfect to munch for breakfast or lunch, or to stow away in your luggage for friends and family back home. If you keep a pound (or three) of the local coffee for yourself we promise not to judge you.
Beat the crowds and blistering sun and get there early (we typically try to arrive around 8 a.m.) to snatch up farmer’s market favorites like The Pig and The Lady’s savory soups and Ono Pops’ fresh popsicles made with all local and organic ingredients with flavors like guava chiffon, mango habanero-lime or pineapple li hing.

An amazing market! So much to taste and see! One of the best markets I have been to anywhere in the world! Short walk from the Waikiki Parc...just follow the crowds on Saturday morning as the market certainly does get full!
