Did This: KCC Tuesday Night Farmers’ Market

Last week I blogged about my love/hate relationship with farmers’ markets, particularly the crowded, impossible-to-just-get-vegetables one at Kapiolani Community College on Saturdays.

In response — to the problem, not my blog — the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation decided to try something new: a Tuesday night farmers’ market with fewer vendors and a focus on providing great food and local vegetables, fruits and flowers to residents — and everyone who avoided the intense Saturday version.

After my blog, folks comments and tweeted that I should check out this more relaxed farmers’ market that didn’t get too crowded — and wouldn’t stress me out.

So I went last night to see whether it was different from the Saturday craziness — and I was pleasantly surprised.

Here’s what it looked like:

Tuesday Night Farmers' Market

This is HFBF's third nighttime farmers' market — the other two are at the Blaisdell on Wednesdays and in Kailua on Thursdays — and an answer to folks who love farmers' markets but hate the Saturday crowd. We got here at around 4:30 p.m. and it was a stark contrast to the one here on Saturdays. We could actually find parking!

Tuesday Night Farmers’ Market, 4-7 p.m. Aug. 14., Kapiolani Community College, 4303 Diamond Head Rd.

    if you’re ever in Kaneohe, the windward mall market is great for good, fresh local produce.

    The irony is, because of your blog Tuesday nights will eventually be just as crowded as Saturdays… =(
