Happy Summer, everyone! Let’s enjoy the bounty and beauty of the season.
I went to a different farmers market this morning, and I really liked the change. It was because the weather was predicted to be so foul this weekend, and because Monty had to work early this morning, and I didn’t want to get stranded somewhere where I couldn’t take cover if I needed to. The change was good, because it wasn’t so crowded and the vendors were so much more relaxed. At this market, (I’m talking about the Ward Warehouse Saturday morning one) there is also much more of a consensus for everyone to display the food to be visually beautiful, and in walking around, my eyes were richly rewarded. As much as I love the KCC market, there was a lot to love about this one.
Lilikoi macaron sample~ just wonderful!

I don’t think there is anything more irresistible than these bunny truffles! I love their little heart-shaped noses…
I didn’t make this, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. I’m feeling a bit under the weather, but I wish you a happy Sunday!
There is one event that we try to make every week~ it’s the only one that we’re really willing to get up early for on a weekend, and that’s the farmers market up at Kapi‘olani Community College. It is a year-round event held every Saturday between 7:30 am to 11:00 am, excluding holidays. We try to get there at about 7:00 am, to try to beat the tour buses, bringing in the hoards of tourists. All of the produce is locally grown, much of it is organic, and all of it is fresh and less expensive than most grocery markets.
It once was that I would only photograph images of the gorgeous orchids and other flowers that are also sold there, but then a friend became curious as I was talking about the breakfast food that can be bought. She had never heard of cooked food being sold at such an outdoor market, so I told her I would make a point of taking some photographs. This gallery is the result of that. (Pity you can’t smell this for yourself!) I know this will be a repeat for many Facebook friends, but it got such incredible response, that I wanted to share it beyond my personal friends. Enjoy!
