Maui’s white sand beaches and an abundance of water sports offer plenty of days in the sun and sea. Eventually, you’ll be ready to take a break from the ocean and venture to some of the island’s shops and farmer’s markets. The Maui Swap Meet is a perfect blend of farmer’s market and craft fair and offers a wide variety of goods to browse.
Long rows of white tents extend into the distance, each housing a unique local vendor. The Hawaii Swamp Meet is where local farmers, artisans, gardeners, and artists come to display their wares once per week. Avoid the tchotchke tourist shops, and opt instead for the Maui Swap Meet, where you’ll find a mix of locals and visitors shopping the wide selection.
Pick up some fresh fruit from local growers and freshly baked bread to enjoy for breakfast, or choose vegetables to use later to prepare a fresh dinner. Cool off with refreshing coconut water, drinking it straight from the coconut with a straw as you browse. There are a variety of food vendors on site offering treats to enjoy later or freshly prepared items such as local-style lunch plates and shave ice. Choose an aloha print item for your wardrobe or a unique piece of jewelry that will remind you of your time spent on Maui. There is something for every style at the Maui Swap Meet!
