King’s Village Farmers Market is held at King’s Village in Waikiki. This is a small scale farmers market that takes place four times a week, so any tourist who is visiting Waikiki for a short time has a chance to taste some local specialties here.
What is King’s Village?
King’s Village is located in the heart of Waikiki, one street off of the main street, Kalakaua Avenue behind the Hyatt Waikiki. King’s Village is a small colorful village full of retail stores and casual diners; it’s easy to spot the colorful and fun décor when you walk by. It even becomes more vibrant when the sun goes down due to the the neon lights, which gives the feeling of almost being in an amusement park.
Happening 4 times a week
King’s Village Farmers Market is held four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. This farmer’s village started off just once or twice a week, but with high popularity, it now takes place 4 times a week. Compared to other farmers markets such as KCC Farmers Market and Ward Farmers Market, it is much more intimate, being that it is a small scale farmers market. You do not have a lot of vendors to walk around and visit, making it more of a quick stop. Even though it is smaller, it is in the heart of Waikiki, and very accessible for tourists staying here, who want to enjoy some local specialties.
Get fresh veggies, fruits, and some Malasadas to go!
As stated earlier, King’s Village Farmers Market is smaller in scale, with only a few tables to be seen. Here, you can find fresh mangos, bananas, pineapples, popular Hawaiian fruits, as well as fresh vegetables that you can eat at the spot or take back to your hotel room. As well as fresh fruits and veggies, there are pre-made meals like soup, salad, coconut tapioca juice, and fried goodies, which can be your snack for the evening or dinner. The items you find at this farmers market are under 5 USD, so you can grab a few items to go back to Waikiki Beach; perfect for having a beach picnic while you see the sunset. For those of you who want to try local Hawaiian goods, you can also try Hawaiian doughnuts, or Malasadas, which are covered in sugar, but a perfect snack to spice up your evening in Waikiki.
Take a quick stop at King’s Village
When you visit Hawaii, it’s always a great experience for a tourist to stop by at one of the farmers markets to get some local favorites. The only problem is, the market may only occur once or twice a week, making it hard to squeeze in with your plans. However, King’s Village Farmers Market takes place four times a week so you have more chances of being able to make it and grab something before heading back to the beach, or to your room, to enjoy the taste of aloha. The prices are good, and if you purchase multiple items there is room for negotiation, so definitely check it out and get a quick bite to go on one of the evenings you’re here.
