For those of you who live in Honolulu, or just love fresh fruits and veggies, THERE IS A NEW FARMERS MARKET IN TOWN!!!! The Kaka'ako Farmer's Market is located in Ward Warehouse, on Saturday mornings 8-12 noon.
At CFO, we are very interested in buying local, fresh foods, so we decided to go check out this new market! This market is very convenient since it is on Saturday mornings and really seems like its the perfect size. It's not too big, but not too small. They have many vendors of fruits and veggies, smoked fish, GRASS-FED BEEF, local eggs, and local restaurant vendors.
Follow us as we interview and learn about some awesome vendors!

The Littlest Co-op was started by a little boy named Leo as an idea to raise enough money to buy himself a toy. From there, he has realized how he can help raise awareness and education on building a sustainable future! Look for them at the Kaka'ako Farmer's Market, and visit their Facebook page HERE.
