The KCC farmers’ market, which is every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., is the largest farmers’ market on the island. The farmers’ market provides an opportunity for local vendors to sell their products to tourists and locals alike, which in turn helps the local economy.

During my trip there, I spent time with three vendors who sold three products: sunscreen, coffee and vegetables.

Little Hands Hawaiʻi
Michael Koenigs, who was born and raised in Kapahulu, co-created Little Hands Hawaiʻi with his wife seven years ago after they had their first child. Little Hands Hawaiʻi is the state's first mineral sunscreen and contains natural ingredients that will not harm people's skin or the ocean. Koenigs has been attending the KCC farmer's market for almost two years selling his product and bringing awareness to people about the harmful ingredients that are in most mass-marketed sunscreens.
