Haleiwa Farmers' Market to reopen in Waimea Valley

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:35 a.m. HST, Aug 03, 2012

A couple of months after closing, the Haleiwa Farmers’ Market is getting ready to reopen at a new location — the Pikake Pavilion and nearby lawn in Waimea Valley.

The agreement, signed Thursday, allows the farmers’ market to operate from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Thursday starting Aug. 9 .

“We’re excited because we love Waimea,” said co-owner Pamela Boyer.

Those who know those two will attest that It was always about the money. Now how about a name change so that we can wipe our hands clean of those two. We still have Waialua Farmers Market set in the rustic settings of the Old Waialua Sugar Mill.

I'm glad to see the market get another chance, but perhaps the powers that be can explain why the market location was 'unsafe' when tucked away on land served by busy but relatively high capacity roads, but is not a safety concern when located behind one of the more dangerous and congested intersections on the North Shore. The intersections of Kam highway, the near-by Waimea Bay parking lot, and Waimea valley road are very busy all day every day and have only stop signs for traffic control. It's not unusual to see fender benders here several times a week. A couple hundred extra cars on thursday afternoon is not a good idea. Much better to back to the old location.

The previous location exposed the State to tens of millions of dollars because the location is uninsurable.

It isn't Thursday afternoon, It's on weekends. And I think the powers that be did explain, as noted by tkik886.

My mistake, I was used to the old operating days and didn't see the new operating day.

You know the negative comments comming from people refering to the Haleiwa market opeators as 'those two'.... get a life. Ive actually vended in their markets and the atmosphere was wonderful...they have a dedication to local /organically grown food that is second to none...they are the best farmers market on the islands.
