A big draw to Hanalei living is the healthy lifestyle that comes naturally with the territory. The surrounding beauty seems to encourage those to be more conscious about health and inspire an active lifestyle. Along with exercise, eating local and organic is an easy way to support those health-conscious choices.

The natural beauty of Hanalei Bay inspires a healthy lifestyle

The community of Hanalei is lucky to have two weekly farmers' markets offered, Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Both markets feature vendors that carry a variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. Some of the featured produce includes mixed greens, tomatoes, citrus, mangos, papayas, lychee, sweet potato, coconuts, avocados, pineapples, and bananas. Specialty food vendors are also on site, offering freshly prepared and packaged foods like hummus, bread, granola, cheese, pies, juice, and salsa. Artisan booths carry Kauai made arts and crafts. Bringing your own basket or bag to contain all the yummy loot you purchase is highly recommended and as a bonus, is good for the environment.

The bounty is plentiful at the farmers' markets

The market is open from 9:30am to 12pm. The Tuesday afternoon market is hosted by the Waipa Foundation in the Waipa Ahupuaa Field from

The Tuesday afternoon market is hosted by the Waipa Foundation in the Waipa Ahupuaa Field from 2pm to 4pm. As the saying goes, the early bird gets the worm, so if you're looking for something specific, make sure to be there when the entry ropes come down!
