Kauai Food Tour – Farmers Market
An event every month that begins at 3:00pm on day Last of the month, repeating indefinitely
This is the foodie’s ideal way to start a vacation, or new residency. Stock up on exotic fruit and vegetables and meet local farmers. Learn how to select perfect produce, sample what’s in season and get cooking tips during this one-hour farmers market class. After writing hundreds of articles and going to more than 90 farms, Marta Lane, created this tour to educate visitors and new residents while introducing them to Kauai’s farmers.
“We very much enjoyed the tour and found it incredibly useful. We proudly sent photos of our purchases to our families back home, telling them all that we bought (13 of which we had never tried or even seen before!). Tonight, we had a fantastic salad with fresh greens and a simple dressing of milk, mayonnaise, herbs and key lime juice. It was spectacular – so fresh! Tomorrow we’ll sauté all of the greens. We’re eating fruit as it ripens, and over the weekend we’ll snack on avocados. Wonderful! We were very impressed – with your knowledge, the relationships you share with the growers, the preparation suggestions you shared with us, and how easygoing and fun the whole experience was.” ~ Ann & Robert Boylan, Washington
