Michael Yulo of MY Kauai Honey has been doing very well since he started with the Monday Market hosted by the Kukui Grove Center, said Stephanie Ano, Kukui Grove real estate manager.
Yulo offers honey and beeswax products, including candles and beauty balm from his table at the weekly market featuring approximately 40 vendors offering a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and other items such as Masa’s Shave Ice.
“We have a wait list of several vendors who want to come in,” Ano said. “They have quality produce, but we are pretty much sold out.”
The weekly market opens at 3 p.m. Monday near the garden section of the Big Kmart store, opposite Payless Shoes, and runs about two hours.
“Most of the vendors enjoy brisk activity within the first hour, and by 90 minutes, a lot of them are packing up,” Ano said. “But it’s not unusual to see vendors doing business at 5 p.m.”
