It is a priority of ours to create a meeting place for the community — young, old and everyone in between: a place of celebration. Each market has a café where patrons gather with their market-purchased food and beverages, listen to live music, and talk-story. We have festivals to celebrate a seasonal crops or cultural themes, such as Hawaii Coffee Fest, Hawaii Cacao Fest, Chile Pepper Festival, and Taro Fest. Vendors will go out of their way to create festive recipes and value added products highlighting that crop. We often have special attractions such as chef demos, book signings, or nutritional demos.
