The market sets up on the pedestrian mall downtown that used to be Fort St. Regulars swear that sometimes the produce selection has more variety than even KCC. The prices do beat the supermarkets, but you should try to go early if you’re intent on getting the most popular produce items. The work crowd know this market well, so certain things often sell out before the lunch hour. Prices aren’t always posted so you may have to ask how much. Though that can cause confusion, it could give you an ‘In’ to try negotiating a little. Another important point – If it matters to you, you should look for the word ‘Local’ on the sign(s) or just outright ask. Some aren’t, but some local offerings just don’t post that information for some reason. A regular stop for many is the Ba Le booth. This beloved local bakery is always here, selling all kinds of pastries, breads and croissant sandwiches that get rave reviews. You can get some real local food here, too, because they cater to the workforce who want something tasty for lunch and later. They like something tasty, filling and easy to eat, so that’s exactly what you get. Parking downtown can be difficult and expensive. Try the municipal lots at Harbor Court (22 Merchant St) or Alii Place (1099 Alakea St). They’re nearby and a better deal than the other parking lots.
