Getting Ready for the Oahu Farmers Markets

Making the most of a farmers market takes practice, skill, and the right information.

Follow these top tips to make sure you get more out of these fun-filled food fests:

  • Arrive as early as you can. We know you are on vacation, but the earlier you arrive the more choice you will have and the less busy it will be. If you are going for souvenirs then this is definitely your best bet. If you are going for lunch or dinner, it’s still advisable to arrive early so you can suss out what you would like to eat in advance.
  • Plenty of farmers markets have left over stock at the end of the trading hours. If you are on a tight budget or are simply looking for a bargain then make sure you hang around until the end and ask. If you don’t ask you won’t get. Just be aware that the reductions will only apply to fresh produce.
  • Try to avoid driving. The roads can be very busy when the markets are going on, so take public transportation or walk. You can take the Shopping Shuttle to Ala Moana farmers Market.
