One vendor lamented the lack of the county’s Sunshine Markets in Lihue for the past two weeks.
“In Lihue, we were closed last week because of the hurricane,” the vendor said. “The week before, we were closed because it was the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair.”
Monday, the vendor showed up at the Anne S. Knudsen Park despite the rain falling and the smartphones beeping in symphony as the island was put under a flash flood warning.
“I lost too much money already,” the vendor said. “I need to come and sell stuff.”
The Koloa location is one of eight hosted by the county for its Sunshine Markets.
Tuesday, the Sunshine Market is at the lawn of the Historic County Building in Lihue from 11 a.m., and the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center from 3 p.m.
Wednesday market is at the Bryan J. Baptiste Sports Complex in Kapaa from 3 p.m., and Hanapepe Park hosts the Thursday market from 3 p.m. The new Kilauea agricultural park hosts its market from 3:30 p.m.
The Friday market is at Vidinha Stadium from 3 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. the market is at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.
