Sunshine Markets to close until further notice starting March 16

The County of Kaua‘i Office of Economic Development is announcing closures of all eight Sunshine Markets – starting Monday, March 16  until further notice – due to the public health concerns regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Many of our Sunshine Market vendors and customers fall into the high risk category for COVID-19 whom we want to protect,” said Nalani Brun, Acting Director for the Office of Economic Development. “We are receiving positive comments from farmers that this move is warranted despite the obvious economic impact.”

The following days and locations will be closed, starting Monday, March 16:

·        Mondays at Kōloa Ballpark (Maluhia Road);

·        Tuesdays  at Līhu‘e Historic County Building;

·        Tuesdays at Kalāheo Neighborhood Center (Temporarily relocated to Kalawai Park);

·        Wednesdays at Kapa‘a New Town Park;

·        Thursdays at Hanapēpē Park (behind fire station);

·        Thursdays at Kīlauea Community Agriculture Center (Kīlauea Lighthouse Road);

·        Fridays at Vidinha Stadium; and

·        Saturdays at Kekaha Neighborhood Center.

If you are a regular customer of one of the Sunshine Market vendors/farmers, please make arrangements with them directly to purchase your produce outside of the County facilities.
