Eating the sunshine in Kauai


When you visit Kauai, give your body a treat and put some of the island in your mouth. Every day, somewhere on the Garden Island, you will find at least one "Sunshine Market," where growers present tropical fruits, veggies, and herbs from small gardens and backyard trees.  


Bring your own bags and some dollar bills—and show up for the opening bell.


Flowers are also on hand to brighten the day.


Sure, you can grab a soursop or mango and eat it on the spot. Or you can select something prepared. 


A few locals offer craft works, as well as music to complete the shopping experience. Kauai Trailblazer has the times and locales for all the outdoor markets, as well as places to find roadside fruit stands.
