Back to some happier stuff.  Every Saturday morning on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Kahului there is a local swapmeet/fleamarket.  It’s a cool little set up with a few hundred vendors selling arts & crafts, mostly homemade, clothing, and lots of locally grown produce and other goodies.  I stopped in over the weekend to have a look.  This is a  nice, inexpensive place to visit on your vacation.  Good place to pick up tacky souvenirs if you are into those sorts of things.  Have a look…

Malasadas are a Portuguese creme filled sugary donut like treat and very popular here in the islands. And yes, they taste as good as they sound.

  1. love seeing the local flavor of where you live.
    and really… strawberry papaya! sounds delicious. I think 3 for 5.00 is very reasonable!
    far more so than our own farmers market here where I live. their prices are just cost prohibitive for me.
    I notice how there’s no trash lying around there … that horrible eyesore of human~caused bits of debris.
    it seems all very clean there. is it that way most everywhere? if it is… HOW WONDERFUL IS THAT!!!
