Getting fruity in Hale‘iwa

A Haleiwa fresh fruit and produce stand is conveniently located behind Pizza Bob’s and designed for those who don’t want to mess with the frenzy of weekend farmers’ markets. Heirloom tomatoes sell for $1 a pound (which sell for around $8 a pound at Safeway), crates of local honey and preserves sell for under $10, and herbs and other leafy veggies are kept beautifully cool in a handy walk-in refrigerator. Seasonal squash, corn and cabbage are arranged in baskets and priced according to weight, and before one knows it, a basket of fresh veggies rings up for less than a single supermarket sack. To further entice one’s senses–from fresh to fried–the owners offer gourmet eggplant, fried green tomatoes and other culinary delights to snack on while shopping.

North Shore Farms Fresh Market Farm Stand, 66-145 Kamehameha Hwy., Open Mon.–Fri. 10am–6pm, Sat. & Sun. 10am–4pm
