Waimea Homestead Farmers Market

Waimea, up near the north tip of Hawaii Island. If the west side is where tourists gather, the relatively mountainous Waimea is really for locals. A small farmers market is held every Saturday morning on the grounds of a public school.

This stand also had some lovely beeswax candles.

Hand-cut pasta. Interestingly, I get the impression that Italian food isn't particularly in demand on the Big Island. Japanese food? Yes.

Stand selling various types of flavored Macadamia nuts.

Freshly chopped coconuts.

A very popular local bakery. Their cinnamon rolls and cookies tasted like heaven on the plane ride back.

There was a stand selling exclusively orchids.

Quail eggs, which were larger than the ones sold in supermarkets in Japan.

There was quite a long line for this stand.

 I must try these one day.

This suggests that something has escaped.
