Eat Locally Maui

Farmers Market
Nautral Food and Deli
3636 Lower Honoapiilani Rd
(North of) Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii

Turkey, sunflower sprouts and Farmer's Market guacamole on whole grain bread

It is actually really easy to get locally grown, caught or raised foods on Maui. There is coffee, fruit, and fish that are rather easy to get. It gets even easier at the farmer's market in West Maui located in the parking lot of the Farmer's Market Store and Deli on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 - 11 am, and the Farmer's Market store is open from 7 - 7 everyday of the week.

salad made with avocado

We got food from the Farmer's Market and the Farmer's Market store including locally grown green beans, corn, sunflower sprouts, and papaya. The specialty of the Farmer's Market store are avocados and guacamole, which we got some guacamole. The guac was so good, just basically avocado mashed up with a little citrus and salt and pepper. Perfectly simple. We made sandwiches with the guacamole, with sunflower sprouts, sliced turkey and whole grain bread. These sandwiches came with us on our road trip to Hana, and everyone who had some really enjoyed the sandwich.

Maui locally grown corn

The green beans and corn were cooked up for one of the dinners we had made. For the dinner we made fresh fruit salad with locally grown pineapple and papaya, fresh green salad with avocado from the Farmer's Market, Mahi Mahi seasoned with smoked paprika then broiled, tri tip seasoned with a savory mix from Penzey's spices, corn, green beans, grilled sausage stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon, and I am missing some other dishes we made. We just had a ball cooking with the ingredients we got mostly from the Farmer's Market store.

It is just so easy to eat well, eat healthy, eat enjoyable, and eat locally on Maui. I think back to the snacks, sandwiches, and this big dinner we made, and how delicious and wholesome all the ingredients were. Yum. There is no reason ever to go to a generic chain restaurant on the island of Maui.

N, Maui is a lovely and interesting place. Oh, and these avocados were very tasty. You might want to know this, it is a shorter trip from Japan to Maui than it is from New York or Washington DC. It seems that East Asian vacationers like going to Hawaii.
