Kona Farmers' Market

First thing this morning, we went to the Kona Farmers' Market.
We bought tomatoes and basil from Malamala Farms, shown above.

Rambutan, a type of lichee... we tasted it at the market and bought some for lunch, as well as several other fruits.

We also bought Kona coffee: light and dark roast, from a farm
that's located uphill from where we have been.
100% Kona coffee is quite wonderful. Unfortunately blends are often labeled quite deceptively... you have to read carefully!
By around 9:30 we were heading for Two Step the great snorkel place near the Honaunau National Park.
Left to right in the water: Alice, Evelyn, Miriam, and Len.
You can see the national park from the snorkel beach.

After snorkeling at the beach, we came back to eat our farmers' market purchases.

Tomato and basil salad, an incredibly ripe mango, other fruit, and bread from the artisan bakery.

You're right -- the market is remarkably different! I love the beautiful colors, flowers, veggies and fruits no matter where they are. And it looks like lots of fun ocean play, too!
