I like to go to our Sunday farmer’s market for my weekly provisions, finding new plants and just bumping into old friends and vendors I have built a relationship with. Its a very festive environment filled with food venues, entertainment and they even teach free Hawaiian language and Ukulehe classes there.
Who wants some of these beautiful bromeliads, $5 each or 3 for $10…you choose any size!
I think I’m going to get some tomato starts and other starters today since the slugs ate most of my little seedlings…they are voracious here. I’m getting 10 starters for only $5 or 50 cents each…what a deal! Today, I’m getting some bok choy, thai basil, various lettuce, tomatoes and tatsui…now I need to find a way to get the slugs to stop visiting my garden…
How about trying a nice freshly made crepe, this one is made with shrimp and fresh avocadoes, basil and other herbs.
Looks ono….eh???? (local expression for delicious)
I love seeing this guy do his work here and make these beautiful pieces of art, he also finds the most amazing trees to bonsai.
Isn’t this one just spectacular?
Boy, its getting hot and muggy today, time to get some fresh coconuts to drink and then scoop up the delicious creamy coconut meat, he will even make a little coconut spoon for you to scoop out the meat.
This is interesting, know why most of the vegetables are wrapped up? There’s so many bugs, fruitflies that the vendors do not want their produced blemished and picky buyers here only want the best produce!
I hope you enjoyed our farmer’s market today, we always find some fresh and inexpensive things to bring back home….aloha!
