Summer is the Best!

Aloha FarmLovers!

Are you enjoying your summer? You bet I am! I love standing over the sink, drenched to the elbows in sweet juicy tropical fruit, biting into scrumptious tomatoes after adding a pinch of Hawaiian sea salt, coming up with new zucchini recipes, and grilling sweet corn then drenching it in butter! What are your favorite summer memories? Mine are always surrounded by the smells and flavors from my mom’s kitchen. We knew it was officially summer when the ice-cream maker made it’s debut: there’s nothing quite like handmade strawberries and cream, is there? Enjoy your week, FarmLovers! We are so very #luckywelivehawaii surrounded by so much beauty and flavor!

It’s a big week for FarmLovers! This Saturday we move our Kaka‘ako Farmers’ Market from our home of the past three years at Ward Warehouse, just around the corner to our new home next to Ross Dress For Less, at the Ward Gateway Center at 333 Ward Ave. We will have a blessing and hula to open the day, then be sure you take your time strolling through the lovely new plaza set up to find all of your favorite market vendors. We will have a Free Gift with Purchase (while supplies last);  you can register for a drawing to get free kitchen goodies from Bed, Bath & Beyond; there will be free bags from Ward Village; Happy Moving Day Coconut Brownie Cake; and of course the Keanu Boom Kanani Band! So come early, and enjoy the celebration. And don’t forget your reusable shopping bags!
