The Keauhou Farmers Market is sponsored by the Kona
County Farm Bureau. The Kona County Farm Bureau is a non-profit
organization representing the agricultural community of North and
South Kona districts. Its membership is dedicated to improving the
quality of life on farms, ranches and their rural communities.
The Kona chapter is a member of the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation,
which represents agricultural interests statewide. The Hawaii Farm
Bureau is also a member of the American
Farm Bureau Federation, representing 5.6 million farmers and
ranchers at the national and international levels.
As a not-for-profit organization, the Kona County Farm Bureau began
the Keauhou Farmers Market in order to provide our farmers with
an outlet from which to directly market their products. From the
larger perspective, a true "Farmers Market" serves as
a powerful educational tool expanding community awareness and building
upon the general public's preference for agricultural products grown
and freshly harvested on the Island of Hawai'i.
As the Keauhou Farmers Market begins the sixth year in operation,
it continues to prosper within what is a transformative moment in
the history of food that is grabbing hold all across the country,
reflected by both today's consumers as well as farmers.
By committing to the growth of more community-oriented food systems
we can serve to advance Island
prosperity in the following ways:
preserves the landscape of Hawai'i
provides fresh, healthy and affordable food to eat
reduces our energy needs and our carbon footprint
builds local resilience, self-reliance, and economic security
keeps money in the community for future investment
builds community pride
Join us at the Keauhou Farmers Market every Saturday morning from
