The luscious vegetation surrounding the island encapsulates numerous beaches anyone would dream of seeing. Furthermore, Hawaii also offers many activities to keep tourists entertained and enchanted with the place. 


If you want to chill by the beach or watch the sunset, you can go to Oahu’s North Shore. On the other hand, if you love hiking to witness with a picturesque view of the island, Diamond Head can offer that. Lastly, if you are in for a more adventurous ride, you can try surfing or snorkeling trips on Oahu. 


But more than the exciting and enjoyable adventures that await you, Hawaii is also a proud home to many delectable dishes. This July, the KCC Farmers Market with over 70 vendors,  is back to serve tourists and locals alike food you will surely enjoy. 


For over 15 years, the farmers market at Kapiolani Community College has promoted local farmers, launched businesses, inspired other markets, and cultivated a deep appreciation for Hawaiian agriculture. The market opened its doors in September 2003. Since then, it has continued to serve its purpose of providing delicious food to locals and tourists and preserving, and proudly promoting Hawaiian culture. 


Daizu Tei Mochi is one of the must-try stalls in the KCC Farmers Market. The long lines in front of the stall prove it has attracted customers with its unique and premium strawberry mochi. Daizu Tei Mochi also offers pineapple, banana, honeydew, mango, and raspberry. Customers can also choose whether or not they want beans in their mochi. If you are a fan of beans, they offer azuki, lima, koshi an (red bean paste), and tsubu an (sweet azuki paste).


If you are a vegan and worried if there is anything you can eat in this market, worry no more because the market has something for you. Growing Roots Hawaii is a stall in the market that offers an assortment of vegan slushes, drinks, and snacks. Some of their drinks are even presented in pineapple or coconut, making them so aesthetically pleasing.


The KCC Farmers Market is open all Saturdays of July, from 7:30 AM to 11 AM at Kapiolani Community College.
