Hawaii Mom Blog: Kaka'ako Farmers Market Haul

Kaka'ako Farmers Market Haul

It's been a long time since we've visited the Kaka'ako Farmers Market. It has moved several times over the years due to the non-stop construction and development in the Ward area. It is currently located on two blocks on Ala Moana Blvd, where Ala Moana Blvd intersects with Ward Avenue/Ilalo Streets. Parking is located on the Diamond Head side of Ilalo Street, where the old Fisherman's Wharf restaurant once stood.  

I came here for one thing only (you'll see it at the very end of this post), but we picked up some other items along the way. Here's what our haul looked like:

Fresh Coconut Water - there are a couple of vendors at the Kaka'ako Farmers Market, showcasing their skills as they crack open the coconuts right before your eyes. 

My sons were intrigued by the process and enjoyed their fresh coconut water!

Vegan Tofu Mazemen from Ezogiku - Ezogiku is one of Oahu's OG ramen-yas. In addition to their restaurants in Waikiki and Pearl City, they also have a booth at the Kaka'ako Farmers Market. They sell three types of mazemen (broth-less mixed ramen noodles). The hubby tried the Vegan Tofu mazemen - it was good but spicy!

Garbonzoat Hawaii Protein bars -  I love trying homemade protein bars as they tend to taste better than the commercially packaged ones. These are from Garbonzoat Hawaii.  The top is strawberry dark chocolate protein bar and is their most popular flavor. The ones without strawberries is their coconut almond protein bar. 

Ulu and Kalo Bakery - Coconut Macadamia Granola and Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. I picked up the granola for myself - it's made with gluten-free oats, naturally sweetened, and vegan! The cookies were a gift for my niece who is gluten-sensitive. I love that their products are made with local ingredients, gluten-free, plant-based, and onolicious!

And here's the real reason for coming to the Kaka'ako Farmers Market today - Izu's Mochi! She used to have very long lines and sell out quickly. There was a very short line when I came today, and I ordered a couple of boxes to gift to friends.  Her mochi is all homemade and topped with cute decorations! The mochi is really soft and melts in your mouth. She does a lot of custom orders and you can see her creations on Instagram (@izusmochi). 


The Kaka'ako Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8 am - 12 pm.  Follow on Instagram (@alohafarmlovers) for updates.
