I was able to start my weekend off right with a trip to the Ala Moana Farmer’s Market. This is one of my favorite markets here on Oahu, run by the same dynamic lady duo that runs the Haleiwa Farmer’s Market. The Ala Moana market is great for many reasons:
- Most importantly, lots of quality produce from our island farms. Organic, exotic, local!
- It’s at a good time (Saturday mornings), and I can usually remember to go!
- It’s held at the mall, and I think it’s a GREAT way to give the finger to the consumerist bullshit that the mall generally represents. Who needs all that Prada, J.Crew, and Chanel crap when we have beets and greens and fresh bread and eggs and music?!
- Such good prices: for only $40, I walked away with lots of calamansi (sweet-tart mini citrus fruits), limes, oranges, mangoes, pastured eggs, turnips, collards, kale, beets, choi sum, cilantro, jicama, lemongrass, green papaya salad, avocado, and two wee bananas.
