Community Market

PUHI — Yawadee Yadao likes succulents. Her love is the basis of the latest offering at Hale Botanic, the newest addition to the Kauai Community Markets.

The succulent offerings — either singly or in combinations as potted gardens — were a popular item Saturday as shoppers combined Christmas shopping with picking up fresh produce.

Edyn Naka‘ahiki, along with visiting Alexandra Kanahele of Oahu, were in foodie heaven, gobbling up bricks of kulolo, sampling the latest Ono Pop offering of fresh strawberries with a pina colada covering, and then off to pork, peas and pimento.

“The Ono Pops are cheaper here than Oahu,” Kanahele said. “And the kulolo? It’s hard to find on Oahu.”

The Kauai Community Market, a partnership with the Kauai County Farm Bureau, is held Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the front parking lot at the Kauai Community College.
