Farmers Market, Hawaiian style

20130830-222743.jpgI love our local farmers market: There are booths set up on a wide front lawn in town with about 25 vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and eggs, prepared food, bakery goodies, plants, pottery, and other hand-made items. Often there is the live music of a local band or a demonstration by a local artisan. It’s a great place to run into neighbors and friends every Friday afternoon through the summer.

Recently we visited a farmers market in Hawaii. No out-door venue here. Nope, it’s in the mall, right outside of Macy’s, both upstairs and down.

Vendors sell all manner of Hawaiian delicacies as well as the regular produce. Several tables offered pigs ears, bitter melon and exotic fruits as well as some things I didn’t recognize. Some of the best mangoes I have ever eaten were purchased here.
