Lots of Hawaiian gifts, clothing, food, jewelry, toys and more. Try the wagon with the green papaya salad...healthy and delicious.

Was really a fun experience - a nice change from the sanitized beach resort scene. Half of it ( actually 3/4 of it ) was Hawaii souvenirs. Some run of the mill but some unique things. The better part is the food- amazing fresh fruits and lots of other stuff including the obligatory coconut stand at the corner.

The unexpected part was how raw, unpolished and gritty it was. In a good way, though. It felt like a Caribbean island or Latin American village. Very distinct experience. Would recommend coming here for a change of pace vs. the hotel pool and beach.

Bring cash. I did want to buy spices but she didn't have her card reader up and running. Nice variety of fruits and foods (can't guarantee how long they were sitting there or if hands were clean, but if your adventurous with strong stomach acids- go for it. It look yummy). Parking very tight. Lots of free samples. Vendors friendly.
