Torrential rain subsided just in time for my family to enjoy Hanalei Farmers Market, a local mainstay that runs Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. I even kept up my celebrity sighting hot streak, spotting Lisa Bonet and husband Jason Momoa shopping at a jewelry stall. Of course I was at the market with mountain views for other reasons.
Kauai Kunana Dairy sets up a market stall near the entrance and doesn’t just specialize in goat’s milk cheese. The dairy also sells honey, produce, and fresh juice. Soursop Mint Juice ($4) featured the seeded Caribbean white fruit with spiny green skin in a pastel green, sweet, pulpy liquid with a refreshing, aromatic hit of mint.
