Lots of fruit, mangoes, dragonfruit, papaya, lychees ... yum, yum, yum. Cut dragonfruit in half and freeze overnight. Ice cream like, but it's fruit. Also bought a flower arrangement for $5 and it lasted a week and a half!

Saturday is the biggest day and all the local are selling fruits, vegetables, flowers, and prepared foods. The main area is covered and across the street are food trucks and Hawaiian items for sale.
