Oahu, Hawaii Farmers Market Guide

Ultimate Guide to Local Farmers Markets on Oahu, HI

Welcome to the comprehensive guide to Farmer’s Markets on Oahu, Hawaii. If you’re a fan of these slices of local life, you’ll find here everything you need to know. What’s different about this guide?:

  • Every market listed here is open for business. Too many sources list markets that have moved or even closed, some a long time ago. Ever shown up ready to shop and found an empty lot? It’s a waste of your time on this beautiful Island and we’ve made sure that doesn’t happen.
  • All the listings here are not only open, they’re also worth visiting. Our team has personally gone to check out farmer’s markets all over Oahu so we’ve made sure to list only those that have something special – and more than just a couple of tents set up.
  • If you know of any awesome new farmers markets worthwhile mentioning, located anywhere on Oahu – with more than just 2 – 3 vendors – we’d love for you to share details in the comments section below.

One thing you’ll notice immediately at these events is there’s a lot of prepared food for sale. It’s a reflection of life in Hawaii, where community revolves around good food and eating together.Though it isn’t strict farmer fare, these booths are a fantastic opportunity. Sample tastes that originate from the Native Hawaiians, the Portuguese, a multitude of Asian cultures plus some that combine it all deliciously. That’s what we call Local Style. Don’t miss out on trying at least a few things – it’ll make your day. Maybe even your year.

Now that you know what you’ve got here, it’s time to dive in and plan out your time and travels to the markets all over Oahu!

20. Windward Mall Farmer’s Market

A little different since the booths set up indoors, so you’re out of the elements and in the AC. Booths are on both mall levels so there’s plenty to see. Some are sceptical about whether most produce here is grown locally, but most love the food offerings and the comfortable setting. Maybe not as authentic, but still a good time in the largest mall on the Windward Side.

21. Kailua Farmers Market

This is as much a local get-together as a farmer’s market. Friends and neighbors catch up here and get dinner from one of the booths. A good balance of food offerings & produce so you get both in about equal proportion, though the food gets most of the praises. Live entertainment some weeks. Save yourself some time & frustration – park in the garage above the market & in front of Macys.

22. Kailua Town Farmers Market

This is the second of Kailua’s markets, held each Sunday morning in the parking lot of Kailua Elementary. Smaller than the Thursday one, some prefer it for being quieter and less crowded. It’s not completely quiet, as there’s always live music throughout the time it’s open.
