When you stay at a vacation rental, you’ll have certain comforts of home that you just don’t get by staying at a hotel. A big one is being able to cook meals. While it’s nice to explore local restaurants and not have to cook, there may be some nights during your Hawaii getaway where you want to cook a meal as a family or group of friends. By renting a vacation home from Kauai Exclusive Management, you’ll have a luxury kitchen to create culinary masterpieces in. Utilize the freshest ingredients possible by stopping by a Kauai farmers market.

A Guide to Shopping Kauai Farmers Markets

There is a range of farmers markets throughout the island to explore during your stay, each filled with delicious, local finds.

  • Waimea Farmers Market: Visit this weekly market on Huakai Road open every Thursday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. You’ll find a variety of fresh produce like mango, papaya, and limes, along with other delicious items, including eggs, pesto, and sugarcane. 
  • Hale Halawai Hanalei Farmers Market: Voted one of the top five farmers markets by Hawaii Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards, this market, which runs Sundays from noon to 2:30 p.m., is a must-visit. Find fresh-baked bread, salsa, and fresh-squeezed juices. You can also shop for work done by local artists.
  • Anahola Farmers Hui Market: Open Saturdays from 9:30 a.m to noon, this market has a special time reserved for mothers with infants and Kupuna from 9 to 9:30. Shop local vendors to find the perfect ingredients for that night’s dinner. Don’t forget to check out the Markers Market on Tuesday. 

During your adventures around the island, keep your eyes open for roadside stands as well. These are the perfect place to grab a snack to enjoy while you are exploring.
