As Hawaii is a multi-sensory treat, you ought to sample some local delicacies as well as see the sights while you’re here. By exploring an Oahu farmers market, you can sample a vast array of the Aloha State’s homegrown and homemade culinary delights while absorbing the local culture. But with so many markets to choose from, deciding which ones to squeeze into your itinerary-packed trip can be challenging. That’s where this guide comes in handy.

At Honolulu Helicopter Tours, we love nothing more than introducing visitors to the very best of what Oahu has to offer, from markets and historic sites to coastal gems and natural wonders. Book a helicopter tour with us if you want to see the entirety of Oahu in the space of 18 minutes to an hour – there’s no introduction to this beautiful island quite like it! Keep reading below for a sneak peek at four of the best Oahu farmers markets.

Where to Find the Best Oahu Farmers Market for You

Here’s everything you need to know to decide which Oahu farmers market to visit during your getaway to the Aloha State:

KCC Farmers’ Market

Taking over the streets around Diamond Head Road near Honolulu’s Kapiolani Community College every Saturday from 7:30 am to 11 am is the KCC Farmers’ Market, locally known as the ‘market at Diamond Head’. Besides fresh produce, you’ll find an array of artisanal offerings at this mouthwatering Oahu farmers market, from macadamia nut ice cream and gelatinized coffee to fried green tomatoes and pineapple vinegar. Get here before 9 am to beat the rush.

KailuaTown Farmers Market

While smaller than KCC, the KailuaTown Farmers’ Market has no shortage of quality vendors selling local treats like apple bananas, starfruit, papayas, and citrus. In the late summer, you can expect to see lots of local mangos, while the fall seas the stalls fill up with coconuts, pink guavas, and giant avocados. Besides the food, KailuaTown has a seating area with live music. The market is in full swing every Sunday from 8 am to noon.

Haleiwa Farmers Market

Situated in the stunning Waimea Valley near Oahu’s North Shore, the Haleiwa Farmers Market is teeming with tropical fruit grown on the nearby plantations. Here, you can sample guava, papaya, and pineapples as well as mac nuts, coffee, and chocolate less than ten miles from where they’re cultivated. The market takes place every Thursday from 2 pm to 6 pm.

Windward Mall Farmer’s Market

Despite being an amazing hotspot for local foodies, the Windward Mall Farmer’s Market surprisingly remains somewhat of a hidden gem. Yet despite being off the radar with many tourists, the Windward Mall Farmer’s Market is home to an array of delicious Pacific Rim and pan-Asian cuisine, plus delights from further adrift such as Portuguese baked goods. The market is open from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday and 2 p to 6 pm on Wednesday.

See Oahu Farmers Markets and More from Above

As you can see, no matter what tickles your taste buds, there’s an Oahu farmers market for you. If you want to experience the local culture without jostling with hordes of tourists, head to the KailuaTown Farmers Market. For something slightly larger, visit the KCC Farmers’ Market. And if you want to sample international as well as local delights, browse the culinary gems at the Windward Mall Farmer’s Market. Explore the Haleiwa Farmers Market to experience a serene shopping trip away from the city. And if you want a bird’s-eye view of all these markets plus Oahu’s most breath-taking attractions, book one of our helicopter tours.

One of the best experiences of my life - and definitely the best one on (or above) Oahu. Jim was very accommodating, ensuring I was comfortable the entire trip, pointing out the amazing scenery, and ensuring that every bump and lift was explained and normal for the flight. If you decide to do a helicopter tour go with Honolulu Helicopter Tours.

So the flight is awesome. The island is ridiculously beautiful from the air and our pilot knew every crack and crevace and handled the helicopter excellently. But it's the staff that put this trip over the top. Kind, empathetic, genuinely awesome people you want to have a beer with. Valerie waited at the security gate for us while we cleaned puke (before the flight!) off our young son, and shared some harrowing stories of her own while taking us to the hanger. Stefan was entertaining, funny and a freaking great tour guide. Stopping scrolling just book it. I'm so grateful I found them first. Thanks guys on behalf of a VERY grateful family. Mahalo!!!

We got high with Jim today and had the most amazing helicopter tour. Jim is extremely knowledgeable and let us know whenever to expect any “tickles” from the wind. We learned so much about the island from him. We saw whales, turtles and Manta Rays playing from the air. Don’t hesitate to book this tour, its simply awesome

ALOHA, We had the best trip with Stefan, very nice and knowledgeable. The open door trip is the only way to go. We did the 60 minute tour and covered most of the island. Trust me the island comes to life as you view it from the air. I'd do this trip again in a heartbeat!Thank you for a great trip! 🤙😎🌞

Highly recommended!

The team reinforced safety, was always inquiring about or comfort and was very accommodating when it came to our schedule. They sent me emails preparing for the flight and sent texts the day of so I felt well informed. Stefan took us out for a 1-Hr flight around most of the island before sunset. He was a fantastic pilot and kept us informed on all the places of interest we passed over. He pointed out turtles and a family of whales, a major highlight & wouldn’t have been possible to see with the doors on. I plan on returning with some other family soon and chartering another flight.

Imagine flying into the Honolulu airport, the Top Gun theme playing through your headset as the last light of day oozes like honey in golden rivers down the Wai’anae mountain range. Can this really be your life, you ask yourself with a slight pinch. Your skin is prickly with goose pimples - partly from the cooler air above and speed of the helicopter, and partly from the thrill of the ride. A thousand moments of beauty and excitement now flood your mind with what will become indelible memories to last a lifetime. This is no imagination, this is the experience that is Honolulu Heli.

I have been on a few helicopter rides on the other Hawaiian islands in the past, and they were very good. But this one was so much more exciting! I have been living in Hawai’i for 15 years and I still discover how much more there is to see in Oahu. And our pilot Alex was the best.
An absolute must do! Can’t wait to actually do it again!

Alex with Honolulu Helicopter is amazing! He was so calming and knowledgeable. He continuously reassured me I was safe and in good hands. He also offered to play my favorite music of choice. We chased rainbows and saw a few waterfalls as we circled around the entire island of Oahu. I was fortunate enough to fly straight through a 360 degree double rainbow! What an amazing sight! I have lived on Oahu for almost 12 years and saw things I cannot see from land. This helicopter ride was worth every penny! Now that I trust Alex's pilot skills, I can highly recommend him. What are you waiting for? Call and book with Alex today! Do not leave Oahu without taking this tour! I cannot wait to do it again!
