Need to know




This is one of the best farmers markets in Oahu. There are over 100 booths and everything is locally grown or made. A lot of locals have started coming here instead of the KCC Farmers' Market because it’s less crowded.  


You’ll find a lot of locally grown fruits and vegetables, like dragon fruit, mango, lychee, papaya, and soursop (depending on the season). The fruits are not just from Oahu, but from neighboring islands as well. 


There’s also a great mix of prepared foods. People freak out about the hand-pulled noodles, fried mochi balls, sugar cane juice, and Hawaiian honey slushies. You’ll also find fresh-caught fish and grass fed beef, venison, and lamb. 


It’s also a good spot to find some souvenirs with merchants selling handcrafted jewelry, art, textiles, woodworking, home decor, Hawaiian roasted coffee, local honey,  and more.


Hawaiian music and performers give it a fun vibe. Plus you’re steps away from Kaka’ako’s incredible street art. 


They’re open Saturdays from 8am - 12pm.



919 Ala Moana Blvd & 210 Ward Ave.

Good to know





  • Reusable bags. These mesh ones don’t take up much space in a suitcase. 

  • Cash. Not all vendors accept credit card.



  • Free parking across the street at 1050 Ala Moana and at Fisherman’s Wharf and along the street. But heads up, it fills up pretty quickly.

  • Porta Potties. (It’s better than nothing.)



FYI that vendors change often, but these are some favorites…

  •  Eggplant Toast or Mango Toast from Hā‘awi Toast & Tea. 

  • Hand-Pulled Noodles from Youpo Noodles. This is one of the most popular vendors, so get your order in early. (FYI they’re spicy!)

  • Hawaiian Honey Slush from Wicked HI. (Their honey is sourced from local apiaries.) They usually have 3-4 flavors and you can combine them if you want.

  • Ocean Dim Sum

  • Amazake (a non alcoholic version of sake) from Islander Sake Brewery. They have different flavors every week and you can get it in a cup or mason jar.

  • Green Smoothies from Ōmao Man. 

  • Local Cheeses from Naked Cow Dairy Farm .

  • Vanilla Beans from Laie Vanilla Farm.

  • Tonkatsu Sandwiches from Katsu Sando 808.

  • Poke Bowls from Ono Seafoods. (Smaller line at the farmers market than at their shop.)

  • Handmade Mochi in different flavors from Izu’s Mochi. 

  • Fresh Fruit Strawberry Mochi from Daizu Tei. (FYI they sell out early.)

  • Butter Mochi from Lanikai Mochi.

  • Go early. It gets hot and the lines get longer as the day goes on. 

  • Bring cash. Some vendors accept credit cards but not all of them. 

  • Some things may sell out the later you go — especially the popular food items. The flip side is that if you come right before closing, you might score some deals on what’s left. 

  • Wear sunscreen or a hat since you’ll be in direct sun.

  • The market is split into 2 sections, so you’ll have to cross the street to visit both. There’s a police officer stationed at the pedestrian crossing though so that’s a big help.

  • The vendors change often. 

  • There are some really cool botanists selling tropical plants. Just keep in mind that you can’t leave the state with Hawaiian soil so anything that comes in dirt, is a no go for the trip home. 

  • They have fruit washing stations and hand washing stations at the entrances. 



  • This market was established in 2013. 

  • Kaka’ako Farmers’ Market is part of the FarmLovers family of markets.
