Keauhou Farmers Market Is Local & Fresh & Delicious

The Keauhou Farmers Market is sponsored by the Kona County Farm Bureau. The Kona County Farm Bureau is a non-profit organization representing the agricultural community of North and South Kona districts. Its membership is dedicated to improving the quality of life on farms, ranches and their rural communities.

The Kona chapter is a member of the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation, which represents agricultural interests statewide. The Hawaii Farm Bureau is also a member of the American Farm Bureau Federation, representing 5.6 million farmers and ranchers at the national and international levels.

As a not-for-profit organization, the Kona County Farm Bureau began the Keauhou Farmers Market in order to provide our farmers with an outlet from which to directly market their products. From the larger perspective, a true “Farmers Market” serves as a powerful educational tool expanding community awareness and building upon the general public’s preference for agricultural products grown and freshly harvested on the Island of Hawai’i.

As the Keauhou Farmers Market begins the sixth year in operation, it continues to prosper within what is a transformative moment in the history of food that is grabbing hold all across the country, reflected by both today’s consumers as well as farmers.

By committing to the growth of more community-oriented food systems we can serve to advance Island
prosperity in the following ways:
• preserves the landscape of Hawai’i
• creates jobs
• provides fresh, healthy and affordable food to eat
• reduces our energy needs and our carbon footprint
• builds local resilience, self-reliance, and economic security
• keeps money in the community for future investment
• builds community pride

Join us at the Keauhou Farmers Market every Saturday morning from 8am to 12noon – Keauhou Shopping Center, 78-6831 Alii Dr., Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
