Fresh from the Island
At colorful, open-air markets throughout Hawai‘i, you’ll find fresh, homegrown produce at bargain prices. Look for local favorites like sweet and juicy Ka‘u oranges, Puna papayas, cherimoya, poha berries, Hamakua mushrooms, sugarloaf pineapples, Hilo lychees and Waimea strawberries. Some markets sell an assortment of cakes, cookies and preserves. Bring lots of small bills (markets are cash-only).
