ColdFyyre Ice Cream, made in Hawaii

You might say that locally grown produce is expected here in Hawaii, but would you believe we even have ice cream that's made locally?

Ho Farms Mini Cucumber

Do you like the sweet, delicious, crisp texture of a Japanese Cucumber?

If you do, then you have got to try these Mini Cucumbers grown in Kahuku by Ho Farms.

They are basically a mini version of the local favorite, Japanese Cucumber, and are great to add to salads or use in sushi. I like the fresh crispness so much, I just add a little salt and eat them right out of the hand.

Spending time on the Farm at Ma‘o Farms

This past weekend, 40 of us from Foodland had the privilege of working at Ma‘o Farms in Wai‘anae. I say “privilege” because it truly was an honor to learn more about the organization and see and hear first all they are doing for the betterment of our community. Led by executive director Kukui Maunakea-Forth and managing director Gary Maunakea-Forth, the student staff and interns shared their experiences and showed us what had been ... more »

Deal Match - More Reason to Shop Local

Have you heard the latest commercial by one of our competitors? I have to say it shocked me and our staff here at Foodland on several levels. First, there was the mentioning of our company and Times specifically by name – something we just don’t do here in Hawaii. But more than that was the insinuation that customers need not shop with us any longer because this competitor simply matched the prices on only a few of the hundreds of items we have on sale every week.

Kōkua Japan

As our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Japan, we have begun collecting donations at checkout to support disaster relief efforts in Japan.

Where you Grad?
