The FoodShare Farmers Market that has been 'happening' on the narrow piece of land in front of the Hakalau Ball Field will not be 'happening' there after today...apparently after 8 years of this happy little market making it's home there every Tuesday afternoon, someone lodged a complaint with Parks & Recs and market officials were told today would be their last day there.
I wish I knew who would complain about such a wonderful market happening only once a week for 3 hours!!! For shame!
My haul today
Garlic - cheese bread baked in a brick oven (they bring the oven to the park!) limes, tomatoes, bok-choy, 'ae'ae plantain / bananas and green beans...the most expensive thing today was the bread for $8, everything else was either $1 or $2 - total purchase $19 - $11 without the bread.
One vendor always has beautiful flowers from her yard
Pink Heliconia, Pink Torch Ginger, Sexy Pink Heliconia and Lobster Claw Heliconia
I was told they had no idea where they were moving yet, but as soon as I find out, I will share the info...
Meantime, you can 'like' them on Facebook and follow them there, if you wish.
