The following is for archival purposes
only. In 2011 The Keahhou Farmers Market held a special series
of programs where farmers and chefs got together to present
some tasty treats. We are hoping to have this program again
starting in 2014.
The Saturday Keauhou Farmers Market, located in the Keauhou
Shopping Center, was established by the Kona County Farm Bureau.
The Market provides an opportunity for about thirty farmers/vendors
to offer agriculture products grown on the Island of Hawaii
directly to the community.
In addition, on the last Saturday of each month we present
our Keauhou Farmers Market Farmer-Chef Program. The Program
combines a presentation by a local chef demonstrating the
preparation of a recipe using a locally produced agricultural
product with the farmer sharing how and where the product
This Program, funded by a grant from the USDA's Farmers Market
Promotion Program, is intended to enhance the community's
knowledge of locally-grown agricultural products and to celebrate
our local chefs. In addition, through this project, we are
working to connect Island farmers directly with chefs and
restaurateurs as a way of expanding and celebrating the diversity
of local agricultural products available to the community
on the Island of Hawaii.
