Puhi Park Produce

Supporting Local Agriculture

As our island community deals with the coronavirus concerns, Grove Farm brought together our island’s farmers and fishermen with you -- our community -- by offering fresh produce and fish at our Puhi Park Produce site.

Puhi Park Produce offers an alternative for residents to continue to get their locally grown fruits and vegetables while being more sustainable with our food. Most of their produce is harvested the day of or the day before!

Market Hours: Saturdays 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Market Rules

We cannot stress enough the importance of maintaining adequate separation and recommend that you wear a protective facemask. We strongly discourage congregating to socialize.

Also, please refrain from handling the products, but rather, tell the vendor and/or point to what you want to purchase.

If we all follow these simple practices, you can get the freshest produce from our island’s farmers and fishermen.

With the closures of the island’s Sunshine Markets and the popular Kaua’i Community Market, there is a dire need to have a location for farmers and fishermen to sell their fresh produce and to have a safe alternative for residents to continue to get their locally grown fruits and vegetables. Plus, it helps to move Kaua’i to being more sustainable with our food.
