This month marks the 64th anniversary of Foodland’s founding, an occasion we look forward to celebrating with all of you.

With Hawaii's unique environment, we wanted to provide you with a first aid guideline to some common injuries you may encounter while adventuring in Hawaii. As always, please consult your physician for further information on specific medical conditions or symptoms that you may have, and do not hesitate to seek immediate professional medical attention if your symptoms worsen or the pain becomes increasingly unbearable.
The term “Artisan” has been sort of loosely thrown about lately, but what does it really mean? Well, the definition of "artisan" is a person or company that makes a high-quality, distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand and using traditional methods...

We now have Sweet & Juicy Gold Nugget Tangerines available at your local Foodland! Gold Nugget Tangerines are so easy to peel you’ll be enjoying their juicy, seedless segments in seconds! The season for this Tangerine is only through May, so you’ll need to enjoy it while it’s here. This is my personal favorite Tangerine, and while I really enjoy Clementine’s as well, I think the Gold Nugget Tangerine is even sweeter and juicer.
All of us foodies that watch every Chef and Food show on the Food Network could not help but notice the new wine being talked about on the Food Network.

No foo-foo fancy foods, and no wines that you need a second mortgage to purchase.

Every year, Foodland is proud to carry beautiful Easter Lilies grown locally at Howard’s Nursery in Kula, Maui. The handsome gentleman pictured to the left is Howard Takishita, owner of Howard’s Nurseries, Inc, and the green thumb responsible for producing these wonderful lilies. What you may not know is that these same lilies that he tirelessly cultivates especially for our customers, hold a very special place in his heart.
We wanted to take a few minutes and let you know about a few really cool items we just started in the seafood department. We know you all love our poke department so much that we thought it would be a cool idea to add a few new items to the mix. Starting this week, you should see shrimp ceviche and fresh salmon poke in our stores.
For starters, we thought it would be really fun to celebrate some of the other international variations of poke. ... more »
