We drove around Oahu one day while we were there. We cut up the middle and drove around the North Shore on down the Windward side of the island. Somewhere near Laie, we stopped at a roadside Farmer’s Market.
Can you even believe this?! Heaven.
Funny story. We went to the swap meet at Aloha Stadium a few days before we took this drive. I was craving a cold coconut and a guy at the swap meet totally took us. I cringe and get angry all over again just thinking about it. He told us it would be $20 for two large coconuts. Um, yeah. Let’s just end right there. Don’t worry though, I went back and confronted him. He didn’t give us any money back, but it made me happy to call him on it in front of other customers.
This is how much coconuts go for. Coincidentally, I bought a coconut at Sunflower a few days after we got home for the same price. But drinking it on the side of the road in Hawaii is much more fun than in my kitchen in Utah. :)
These spiny red balls are a relative of lychees. They are juicy, sweet and flowery. My husband’s uncle bought some for later. They were delish.
I think these are prickly pears. This was something we didn’t buy that I wish we had.
Apple bananas. Soooo good.
Kiwi, avocados, Malay apples.
Malay apples. Mariko wrote about them here.
Hawaiian avocados. Why, oh why, didn’t we buy some?! Regrets, regrets, regrets. I’ve heard they are amazing. Sigh.
I think these are another kind of guava, but I’m not certain.
Well, if you happen to be heading to Oahu, I recommend heading over to the Kahuku Farmer’s Market. What a memorable experience. I can’t wait to go back…even if it takes me another 30 years to get there.
