Maui Farmers Markets vs Fruit Stands
Farmers Markets: Most Maui farmers markets are only open on certain days of the week. Some are small while others feature a range of stands where locals come to sell their products.
Maui Fruit Stands: Small farm stands are typically in front of someone’s home and selling fruit from their land. You’ll also find local home goods such as warm Maui banana bread.
*Double-check the dates and times of the Maui Farmers Markets as they are subject to change.

Our 7 Favorite Maui Farmers Markets
1. Upcountry Farmer’s Market
Location: 55 Kiopaa St, Makawao, HI 96768
Schedule: Saturday 7-11 am
This weekly Maui Farmers Market is one of the largest on the island. Here they sell literally everything from hot coffee to fresh herbs and full meals.
Set in a massive lot, the rows of stands are sure to keep you busy. Whether you’re stocking up on fruits and veggies or simply looking to grab lunch, this is one of the best farmers markets in Maui Hawaii.
Another thing that makes this market unique is that it is located in an area known as upcountry. If you’re visiting the island on a Saturday you can combine this popular Maui Farmers Market with a trip to the lavender gardens, Maui Winery, Kula Botanical Gardens, or Haleakala National Park.
2. Olowalu Maui Farmers Market & Juice Stand
Location: 737 HI-30, Lahaina, HI 96761
Schedule: Tues-Sat 10-4pm
When driving out to the beautiful coastal town of Lahaina you’ll pass a pop-up market on side of the road. This is one of the smallest Maui Farmers Markets, but certainly worth a visit! The tented market sells all the traditional favorites like Maui Gold pineapples, local jams, and spices.
Directly next to the small Maui Farmers market is the Olowalu Juice Stand which always has a line! Looking for something sweet? Head to the small building at the far side of the lot named Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop. We highly recommend the Chocolate Macadamia and Banana Cream pies.
3. Farmers Market Maui Kihei
Location: 61 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753
Schedule: Mon-Thurs 7am to 4pm & Fri-Sat 7am-5pm
Just outside of Kihei town across from the beach is the cute Kihei Farmers Market. This is the perfect quick stop while passing by the area. We grabbed some dragon fruit, a fresh-cut pineapple, and an acai bowl for lunch!
It will be hard not to notice the MASSIVE line in the parking lot next door Ululani’s. This is where you can try Maui shaved ice! If it’s your first time getting it try one of the classic tropical combos. Also, stop into Sugar Beach Bake Shop next door for a local malasada fried donut.
4. Kula Country Farms
Location: 6240 Kula Hwy, Kula, HI 96790
Schedule: Mon – Sat 9am-4pm
Located in upcountry, this large farm and Maui fruit stand has many great seasonal products. The scenic view of the area is amazing and just around the corner from the lavender gardens, Maui Winery, & Kula Botanical Gardens.
5. Iao Valley Maui Fruit Stand
Location: IAO Valley Road
On the drive out to Iao Valley is a small Maui fruit stand on the right side of the road. What will catch your attention first is the bright red sign that says banana bread! The family-run stand also sells coconuts and fruit, but the banana bread is the real treat.
Don’t worry if you can’t see it when walking up. The bread is kept in a small box wrapped in cloth to stay warm. We bought a whole loaf for $7 and it certainly lived up to the hype!
6. Road to Hana
We spent an amazing day on Road to Hana and couldn’t believe all the roadside stands and farmers markets. One of our top tips for driving the Road to Hana is to bring small bills to buy snacks and treats along the drive.
So what kind of treats will you pass on your drive? Fruit stands and homemade banana bread are plentiful. However, we also saw coconut brittle, flowers, coffee, and so much more! Make sure not to save your food stops for the drive back. Some stands sell out or are only open for the morning rush!
7. Yee’s Orchard & Fruit Stand
Location: 1165 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753
Schedule: Daily 11am-5pm Closed Mon & Friday
The first time we passed this small roadside Maui fruit stand we immediately did a U-turn! Yee’s Orchard is such a fun spot to visit for any tropical fruit lover.
The woman was happy to help select the best mangos that are ready to eat. While the mangos are the star of the show at this farmers market in Maui Hawaii, the mango bread is also worth trying, too!
