Aloha FarmLovers!
This Sunday we celebrate the 3rd Annual CACAO FEST at KailuaTown Farmers’ Market! Discover the wonder and deliciousness of Hawaii Grown Cacao and its’ finest chocolate makers. Come check out the industries finest… Waialua Estate Chocolate, Madre Chocolate, Manoa Chocolate, Lolohana Chocolate, Kokolani Chocolate, Hawaiian Crown and Aloha Chocolate. We’ll have chefs on hand to give you ideas (and samples!) of sweet and savory ways to utilize local chocolate in your meals. Look for Chef Jason Kiyota from The Food Company, Mama T from Down the Earth, Queen Camille of Camille’s on Wheels, and Chef Nicole LaTorre. They will be sharing up everything from Braised Beef with Chocolate Mole to Cacao Smoothies. And it doesn’t stop there! Be sure to come hungry because our market vendors are preparing special choco-rific creations, too- like Chicken or Veggie Enchiladas with Waialua Estate Mole, Pami’s Everything Chocolate booth, Strawberry & Chocolate Waffles, and Triple Chocolate Creme Brulee. Bring a friend and hang out in the cafe while you listen to Paul Izak & Seeds of Love. The kids will enjoy free arts & crafts in Keiki Korner (making Mr. Cacao Heads!), and the Balloon Man will be on hand to impress you with his mad balloon skilz. And don’t forget to fill those shopping bags with plenty of fresh produce and flowers for the week! We are ready for a party… see you there! Bike Valet courtesy  Rusty Chain Cyclery!

Savory Morsels and Sweet Delights…

 Farmers’ Market News

February 19, 2014 – Vol. 6 Issue 7

Aloha FarmLovers!

We all try to make the healthiest food choices for ourselves and our families… we shop at the farmers’ market, and pick out the freshest, most nutrient dense produce- grown just a few miles away, we prepare it with joy and serve it with love. We show our appreciation for loved ones by showering them with tasty morsels, day after day. Yet now matter how fresh, or how cleanly grown the produce is… if we don’t wash it before preparing it, we risk contamination from the skin to the knife and back to the delicious produce we so carefully picked out. So, here’s a gentle reminder to always wash your produce before you use it. Click here for a few tips to make it easier. Select, Wash, Enjoy!Time to partake in Chocolate festivities! Lucky you, there are two big celebrations that embrace your inner Choco-holic! First up is the Hawaii Chocolate Festival this Saturday, February 22nd at the Dole Cannery (see below for details,) then March 2nd head to KailuaTown Farmers’ Market for our 3rd Annual Hawaii Cacao Fest …  you’re welcome.
