If you love farmer’s markets, then you don’t want to miss the KCC Farmer’s Market on Oahu. It’s located at the University of Hawaii Kapi’olani Community College at 4303 Diamond Head. And, it takes place on Tuesdays from 4-7pm and on Saturdays from 7:30-11am. If you’re visiting Waikiki, it’s conveniently close, a long walk or a cheap Lyft ride away. I went on a Saturday morning, and while being really crowded, it’s still one of my favorite Farmer’s Markets.

The KCC Farmer’s Market Food Vendors

For me, the highlight of the market was the food vendors there. The Pig and the Lady is my favorite restaurant in Honolulu, so I loved being able to get my favorite soups from there at the market. Their ox tail pho is just ridiculous and one of the best bowls of pho I’ve ever had. It made for the perfect breakfast.

There are also plenty of tropical fruits for your enjoyment, too. While a little more costly than some of the other farmer’s markets, it’s still a great way to try some of the Hawaiian specialties like lychee and dragon fruit.

All of the produce at the market is incredibly fresh and grown locally, so it’s nice to support the farmer’s that grow such amazing things in Hawaii.

The highlight of the market was meeting the spunky Dina from Dina’s Garden. She made a pretty decent Thai iced coffee, and meeting her and hearing her stories made my day.

I really hope to be half this adorable when I’m her age. She also served iced tea, lemonade, and a few home-baked goodies.
