Farmers' Market on Oahu

Shop L O C A L, Shop at the Farmers Market!  Some people say they never know when they are, or where they are.  Well here is a complete list with contact information, hours, dates, and places!  Some of my favorites are: Wednesday night Blaisdell Market, KCC Saturday morning market, Thursday in Kailua town in the Long's parking lot, and many more...   This list is up to date and lists contact information so you can call and make sure nothing has changed with the schedule.  How great is that??  This list shows that there are markets all OVER the island, so it doesn't matter where you live, you can shop local - no problem.
