This February, Kealia Farm Market opened by showcasing farmers who grow on a 40-acre property known as Kealia Farm. Besides just harvested produce, this market offers fish caught off Kauai’s shores as well as taro products such as poi, cooked corms, pie and laulau. Since all of the farmers are from one farm, founder Adam Asquith is not calling it a farmers market, rather it’s a farm market. Located across from Kealia Beach, behind the Kealia Post Office, you’ll see a red wagon and shortly thereafter, a parking lot on the left. The market is open every Monday and Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. When designing the market, Adam wanted to create something by the community for the community. The hours accommodate people who work during the day and m Kapaa residents volunteer their time to promote and manage the market.
