Someone recently asked me to describe what the Maku'u Market was all about, and well, there was a challenge. It's part farmer's market, craft fair, flea market, small business promotion, new products, entertainment, and great food. There! How was that? Fortunately, I recently went, and took lots of pictures, so that'll help. The market is only open on Sundays, and they charge a buck a car to get in. It's well worth it. I'll put some pictures in, below. As a "foodie," I had one heck of a time deciding which food photo to post. There is a lot of really great food to choose from. Mr. L said that the burrito (above) was the best burrito he has ever eaten on the Island. Wow.
I think my favorite aspect of the market, aside from all the glorious food, is that it brings together a lot of small businessmen/women and gives people a chance to showcase their budding businesses. You can buy soap, t-shirts, honey, breads, vinegars, jewelry, concrete statues -- well, you get the idea. There are rows and rows of booths.
