On behalf of the Hanalei Farmers Market 'ohana of farmers, artisans, and food vendors, we are THRILLED to announce that the Hanalei Farmers Market will reopen next Saturday, June 16, from 9:30am-noon!

You can see the official statement of Hale Halawai 'Ohana O Hanalei, the non-profit organization that runs the market, on our facebook page.

We are truly grateful for the outpouring of support from our island community, as well as from visitors around the world. More than 1500 individuals signed the petition urging the market be saved! You demonstrated how beloved and integral a part of the community our market truly is, and our hearts are forever touched.

We applaud the County of Kauai and Hale Halawai Board of Directors for working together to expedite the permit review process, helping save a true Kauai community treasure. We also appreciate the generous support of Namahana Farmers Market, for graciously accepting our vendors on a temporary basis, while these issues were being resolved.

NOTE: THIS SATURDAY ONLY, the Hanalei Farmers Market will take place at the Namahana Market, located at Kauai Mini Golf, 5-2723 Kuhio Hwy, from 9-1pm. Beginning next Saturday, June 16, we will resume operations from 9:30am-noon, at the site of the Hanalei Community Center, located near the Wai’oli Hu’ia Chuch (the beautiful green church).

We look forward to everyone working together to address any remaining concerns, in a way that reflects the true Spirit of Aloha.

Mahalo nui loa for all of your support. Aloha!

  2. The sunshine markets are one of the greatest assets of our island. Whenever I am approached by a visitor on what they must do, I always send them to a farmers market so they experience local produce like lychee, rambutan, starfruit, breadfruit, jabongs, mango-steins dragon fruit, the list is endless. Farmers markets are healthy fun, and great bargains.

    Every Wednesday I religiously attend the Kapa'a farmers market, which is my favorite farmers market, however each farmers market brings a beautiful and healthy energy to all. Great job!
