If I lived On Oahu…

…every Saturday morning would begin with a ready appetite and a visit to the KCC Farmers Market.

Why not – have shave ice for breakfast?

And bring home a Bale baguette for dad.

(Sometimes he switches it up and requests a loaf of potato and onion focaccia).

The bread and pastry options from Bale have expanded since my last visit six months ago. Suffice it to say that Rodney Weddle is turning out the best bread on the islands. Japanese, Chinese, and even Korean breads are plentiful here, but it’s so very rare that once comes across a decent loaf of the rustic European type, much less a great one.

Remember the Magic Rice Pop machine we came across at Palama Market? Well they also have a similar contraption here, EXCEPT…

…the crackers are embedded with furikake! How exciting :)

When the entire family comes, we usually grab a few plate lunches for breakfast. Options are so many it can be overwhelming. The pesto grilled pizza is a family favourite, though we try to switch it up with other dishes like laulau…

…or garlic shrimp…(the fried taro mochi is also worth stomach space, that is, if there is any left by this point!)

…but no matter what eat, we always end on a shared dish of fried green tomatoes. Heheh.

Saturday, 9am

I’ve been visiting the KCC Farmers Market twice a year. Once in the summer, and once in the winter. Lucky all those who live on the island – it’s so easy to take advantage this market. Find my last post (summer 2008) here. I wish this was a more comprehensive post, but alas, tax season has all but drained my energy (and dried out my eyes ;).

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday!

    I can’t say enough how much I love your Hawaii posts! (Your NYC ones are great too… but there’s nothing like home).
