Project Mahiʻai introduces “Fresh at Sunset” at the Maui Sunday Market
For the first time, the Maui Sunday Market will offer garden-fresh produce–such as avocados, lilikoʻi (passion fruit) and herbs of basil and rosemary–from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Kahului Shopping Center parking lot.
Amidst food trucks, crafters and other tented vendors, Project Mahiʻai (“farmer”) will offer fresh vegetables and fruits grown by the Native community.
Project vendors also will offer citrus, jams, jellies, chutney and Haleakalā Supah Shots.
Funded by the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Project Mahiʻai provides an Amazon-style sales-and-distribution system aiming to serve Native Hawaiian farmers and ranchers. The project booth also will provide a distribution site Sundays for produce ordered online.
To order items–including meats, eggs and dairy, when available–register at website projectmahiai.net or download an app at website projectmahiai/app.
