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!
