Farmers Market

You can find a farmers market six days a week on Kauai!  Cory and I had gone to them a few times... but always at the end and it seemed to be pretty picked over.  This past week we arrived at the market right as it was about to open.  We could hardly find parking because it was so packed!  There was a crowd of people waiting to get in and shop.  We were able to find a couple of good deals on fresh fruits, my favorites being apple-bananas and papayas. There was definitely a wide and unique selection.  People also sold beautiful bouquets of tropical flowers for only $5.00!  Now that seemed like a good deal to me (hint hint Cory)!  People getting married on the island would definitely not have to worry about spending a lot of money on a florist!

 We bought the coconut that my mom is holding and we watched our salesman use a machete to cut of the top of it so we could drink the water! 

 Here is everything we bought.. yum!  Yes you can eat those red spiky things in the back.  You cut them open and inside is a kind of fruit that tastes like a grape but it has a seed in the center.

Here is my mom, getting all of the "meat" out of the coconut!
