If you’ve lived in Waimea or the surrounding area for more than 10 years, you know that the farmers markets are a relatively new attraction and welcome addition to our community. The moment you arrive at the Waimea Town Market, you know it’s something truly special. This place is busy! Saturday mornings are so enjoyable here with many kiosks, many shopping possibilities for locals and for visitors. It’s hard to believe we’re in a small town! The Waimea Town Market manager Paul Johnston has made an effort to keep this market special in so many ways. You pick up a sense of community here along with a fierce dedication to entrepreneurial spirit, and people that just plain love what they do. Great food, great people, music, good things to eat, the freshest produce, and a wide array of artisan specialties.
Building this website was a lot of fun. I spent time at the market talking to vendors, taking photographs, and enjoying beautiful sunny Waimea mornings with so many friends and acquaintances.
