It’s time! They’re here!

Aloha FarmLovers!

A big THANK YOU to all who participated and attended our 2nd Annual Kailua Artisan Fair this past weekend. We were honored to be surrounded by so many talented artists. Let’s do it again soon…

Oh my goodness guess what, my friends! There are mangoes and lychee on my kitchen counter! My favorite season has arrived, and you will find me hunched over my sink elbow deep in juicy goodness till it passes. There is nothing better than fresh delicious tropical treats. We are lucky we live Hawaii! Just take a peek at these beauties just harvested by Kahumana Farms, and try not to salivate. I double dog dare you.

Aloha FarmLovers!

I’m sure by now you have noticed that we are big supporters of local agriculture, and advocates for small farmers… but did you know we also love artists? This Saturday, May 6th, we celebrate our 2nd Annual Kailua Artisan Fair, from 9am to 3pm at Kailua Elementary School. We have an amazing line up of artists, and we know you will find something for yourself, and something for a mom (yo, Mother’s Day is right around the corner!) Everything from paintings, illustration, mix media, glass, wood, pottery, photography, textiles, jewelry, and beyond! PLUS, there will be great food and awesome live music. So call up your best friend, and head over to the Kailua Artisan Fair this Saturday!

Don’t skip this important step!

Aloha FarmLovers!

Just a gentle reminder that it is always important to wash your produce before you enjoy it. Nothing fancy… just tap water and a little patience will to the trick to wash off any unwanted stuff. Here’s a great article from Modern Farmer to help you through some common misconceptions and get you on the right track! Fresh, local, and in-season is best, but don’t skip that important step of rinsing right before you prepare your market goodies!

We are getting close to our Second Annual Kailua Artisan Fair! Have you called your friends to make a day of it? We have hand selected a fabulous collection of local artisans to shower you with their beautiful creations, so don’t miss out. And make sure you hang out and enjoy the live music with Paul Izak, Tim Clark, Jason Clark, Charlie McGee and Roothub! We will have some of our favorite foodies on hand too: Nina Cucina and her vegan deliciousness, Nic’s Island Coffee, Petite Suisse Crepes, Honolulu French Connection bakery, and Brigitte from KeNui Kitchen! We want to make sure you have plenty of snacks while you shop. See you there!
