KCC Farmers Market

Photos from Oahu continued...

Every Saturday morning there's a farmer's market at Kapiolani Community College sponsored by the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation. In addition to picking up "lunch", we had a great time!

The following are a few random photos from our wanderings about the marketplace, including this photo of us (below). When you have someone else take your picture be prepared to lose part of your head.

Lots of locally grown and organic fruits, vegetables, and healthy foods can be found here. There's a diversity of food samples to sample, so we went around trying everything from oatcakes to popcorn with spirulina.

There were also all kinds of bottled sauces and marinades. Great stuff for people who like to cook and eat.

Of course, the organic "made in Hawaii" produce is one reason why a lot people come here to shop -- apple bananas, papayas, mangos, pineapples, melons, herbs and spices.

From this place called Kaiulani Spices, I got some "Kona coffee" seasoning. It's a rub for meats which I have yet to try at home, but the food samples I tried were pretty good...

Many colorful reasonably-priced orchids and flowers sold here too. Unfortunately we couldn't take them back home with us to LA (due to the agricultural restrictions into the mainland).

These vegetarian "tofu" bentos called "Tofushi" looked quite "interesting", so we got one to go...
