Following recent community discussions in support of an alternate Farmers' Market, Hawai`i Farm Bureau Federation (HFBF) and Kapi'olani Community College are launching a three-month pilot market on Tuesdays, beginning June 12th, from 4 - 7 p.m. The location will be the same as for the Kapi'olani CC Saturday Farmers' Market on the grounds of Kapi'olani Community College, which will continue to operate from 7:30 - 11 a.m.
"We are excited to provide this alternate Market to the community. The Tuesday Market is designed to be smaller than the Saturday Market, allowing the community to shop at a more leisurely pace with benefit of great food for dinner," said HFBF's President Dean Okimoto.
Kapi'olani CC Chancellor Leon Richards said, "We look forward to growing the partnership between the HFBF and Kapi'olani CC. The education partnership with the Culinary Institute of the Pacific and the HFBF is a model that works well. Both are statewide organizations with a common goal of strengthening Hawai'i's farm to table vitality with increased food production and culinary arts professionals."
