Sheraton Coconut Beach hosting farmers market, craft fair Friday

WAIPOULI — The Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach Resort will host a farmers market and craft fair on Friday afternoon on its property located near the CVS Long’s Drugs in Waipouli.

This is the first gathering of craft vendors and farmers to take place at the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach Resort following the start of the COVID19 pandemic that shut down the island last year.

“We’re still here,” said Barbara Gusman of the resort’s sales department. “We still have the Hawai‘i National Guard staying here. This market is our community outreach in light of the recent closure of the nearby supermarket, and the renovations the hotel accomplished during the pandemic.”

Both events will adhere to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines that include the wearing of face masks and social distancing.

The farmers market will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. in the resort’s parking lot.

Shoppers can extend their shopping experience by visiting the craft fair that will run from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in the Moamoa Hawaiian Fish House and the Daybreak Restaurant areas.

These two sites are the result of renovation taking place during the pandemic, and craft fair shoppers can get a feel for the resort’s newest dining areas. Previously, the areas were used to stage the food distributions for the resort’s employees.

Both the Moamoa Hawaiian Fish House and the Daybreak Restaurant are currently not available, the resort’s website states.

Other dining options at the Sheraton Kaua‘i Coconut Beach Resort include The Crooked Surf, the First Light Coffee &Juice Bar, and the Luau Makaiwa.

    Just great. More places to visit on the island. Many people find it rewarding to visit the farmers market. Think of all those fresh grown vegetables that they will buy. Some people go for the fresh vegetables. While others go for the SAFEWAY’S version of it. It depends on who you are. Personally, I think it is more of a feeling thing. They feel, they do. I feel like buying fresh, therefore farmers market it is. Coconut has always been my favorite fruit. I used to crack open coconuts fresh kinds from my own tree back before in high school. All I had to do was toss the thing 12 ft. in the air and let it drop on solid tarmac or concrete, and the coconut would split open. Hawaiians did it this way. They never needed a knife. So that was that. Very good and useful medicinal juices and other skin lotions is this freshly coconut can be used for. Many practical purposes. It can be used to treat skin aging and also used for skin lotion and straight from the fresh juice too. The old Hawaiian way. Coconut juices. Yep…
