Fairly decent grocery store in Hanokaa town. Have a little of everything. Good place to load up before heading to Waipiʻo Valley Lookout or Muliwai Trail, if necessary.

We went here several times. They have a pretty good selection of produce and meats and all the usual staples. We were even able to find Duraflame logs. The staff was friendly and I didn’t miss having a larger market around.

Small but adequate market that provided the basics including some prepared food that we could eat on the balcony at our B&B

Checkers are super friendly. Right at the door when you enter. For best prices, drive down the road to the next bigger town, but there is more than adequate variety. They have poke. I tried the spicy octopus. YUM!
