This post is part of our 5th Anniversary Trip to Maui.
During our trip last November, there was one place I made sure we went to on Saturday morning. The Maui Swap Meet! Held every Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the University of Hawaii Maui College campus over in Kahului, the swap meet is your typical outdoor flea market/food fest made special because it has a lot of local foods and crafts. We skipped breakfast that day so we could sample some goodies at the swap meet and pick up a few souvenirs. The prices are great, and you can always bargain with some vendors to get even better deals.
It was about a 20 minute drive from the Andaz Wailea to Kahului. We got there pretty early, around 7:15am, but we could see the parking lots were already getting full. The best time to go is right before it opens! There is a very small fee to enter the Swap Meet, but it’s well worth it in my opinion.
There were wonderful smells coming from everywhere…when we saw something we liked, we just got it! It was fun to sample different foods and drinks.
I really love FRESH sugar cane juice so when I saw this stand, I had to have some. I got it with a squeeze of lemon so that it balanced the sweet juice. It was pressed fresh order propecia online india from the stalk to order!
There were many different arts and crafts, jewelry, and homemade spice blends, jams, and jellies. It was so much fun to browse.
It’s also a good place to get those bargain souvenirs…
We had such a fun time at the Maui Swap Meet that we went again the following Saturday for a little bit. I got some locally made spice rubs and jams to take home as omiyage (gifts) for friends and family. I also brought some of the jams to work for our weekly bagel party and they were a huge hit!
