Aloha Market Friend!
Well, Spring is in the air… and in my market basket! What is your favorite market find these days? I am enjoying Onda Pasta’s handmade Tri-Color Pasta made with North Shore Farms Beets and Mohala Farms Kale; big happy Ma’O Sassy salads with Ho Farms grape tomatoes; Lymey’s Smoked Marlin; Tin Roof Ranch pasture-raised eggs; and raw desserts from Rawfello. Of course the abundance of tropical fruit also makes my week juicy and delicious… mangoes, pineapple, papayas, apple bananas, mangosteen, rambutan! With so much to choose from, I need a bigger cooler to get everything home!
There is NO HAWAII KAI Farmers’ Market this Saturday, to make room for Kaiser High’s big Spring Fest. So head over to Ala Moana FM bright and early, then head over the Spring Fest to help with fundraising efforts for the school!
We will see you this weekend at Ala Moana Farmers’ Market (Saturday 8-12) and Haleiwa Farmers’ Market (Sunday 9-1)!
