Support your local small farms and farmers marketsSupport your local small farms and farmers markets

We all need to support our local small farms by buying our fruits and veggies locally.  These are families who toil hard so that we can have delicious things to eat on our tables.  Without them we'll all be eating corporate McFood, and the diversity will be gone.  Small farms may soon be a thing of the past if we don't all help to keep them alive.

As consumers we have the power to speak with our actions.  Please buy locally to support your community.

On Maui you can find a farmers market on any day, like this one at the Queen Kaahumanu Shopping Center in Kahului.  Here's a pretty comprehensive list of Maui Farmers Markets put together by the Maui County Farm Bureau.

I love our local Farmer's Market for the quality and freshness of the produce and other hand made products. supporting local businesses is so important in today's economy.

There is nothing more beautiful and inviting than fresh local produce.  I just came back from my daughter's farm with a bag filled with fresh green beans, zucchini, cukes, and a dozen fresh eggs.
