Farmer’s Market

Fresh Food from the Farmer's Market

One of my favorite things about living in Hawai’i, is the climate! Our weather makes for great produce year round. Yesterday, I took a stroll with one of my daughters through the open air market. She says, “I love shopping like this, it feels like we live some time in the past.” I knew what she meant.

The sweet ladies, selling their veggies and plenny papaya, calling us “dear” and “friend,” telling us about their produce and how everything is homegrown without chemicals.

We had a great time purchasing produce to build our menu for the week. We are having chicken lau lau, pad thai with rice noodles and fresh basil, coconut-pineapple rice with fresh pineapple, garlic, tomatoes and coconut, fresh salsa and salad. Yum!

Fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro, hot peppers and bell peppers were chopped with delight to make pico de gallo last night as a side dish with seafood enchiladas. Carrots, cucumbers, sweet Maui onions, fresh picked basil, cilantro, zucchini, pineapple, luau leaves (taro), red, orange and yellow peppers as well as deliciously ripe avocados will accompany the rest of our meals the next couple days. Then it will be back to the market for more!

Did I mention that this produce was less than $20? That’s right…the affordable life right here in Hawai’i nei!
