“You’ve got to give citrus for Chinese New Year,” said Kenny Ishii, a shopper at the Kauai Community Market. “There are a lot of citrus going off now.”

The offerings at the Kauai Community Market, a partnership with the Kauai County Farm Bureau and the Kauai Community College at KCC each Saturday, is not limited to citrus, but extends to a variety of Kauai Grown produce, fruits and value-added products. The offerings are completed with a variety of food, including seasonal favorites like the homemade ramen, and ethnic specialties that cover Mexican, Indian, Thai and Hawaiian flavors.

The seasonal specials, like the kadomatsu, or New Year’s decoration, fruits in season, and the mizuna that is used in the traditional ozoni New Year’s soup, are among the spices at the market that is open Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
