Saturday at the KCC.

Some of the pretty local flowers.
The KCC (Kapiolani Community College) farmers market is the most well known on the island. It happens every Saturday from 7 to 11 am at the base of Diamond Head. I ventured out there last week to see what they had. It was quite large like they said and there was plenty of produce to choose from. I was not looking for produce, but was interested in what other vendors were there.

Knowing the food vendors would be there I did not eat before I went, I wanted to save lots of room for what I might find. Unfortunately, I was on my own so I didn't have anyone to sample the treats with and I had to be picky. I had a few fried green tomatoes and zucchini to start. After making another loop I went for a piece of grilled pesto pizza. I had had it before and knew that it was worth the wait!

The North Shore Tomato stand that sell the best grilled pizza!

After my breakfast I got some cranberry walnut bread and some fresh butter. I also bought a few Christmas presents that I can't tell you about right away.

All in all I thought that the market did have a great select of local produce, but it seemed just to be a collection of vendors from all of the other farmers market. So I don't think I will travel there again unless I go for a hike up Diamond Head.

I would say that my favorite market is the Sunday morning one on the North Shore.
This big guy was patiently waiting.
