Mahalo to Ishihara family for everything

Today, the Ishihara family is closing Ishihara Market in Waimea. And for that, we and many others are sorry. This family, this store, has for so long, try eight decades, been a staple of the Westside, it’s hard to imagine life with them. The Ishiharas made their community better, not just by selling groceries and what is generally considered the best poke on Kauai, but by creating a family that extended well beyond doors of their well-known and beloved store.
