7 eggplant for $2 at yet another Maui Farmer's Market

It's so wonderful to see so many Farmer's Markets sprouting all over the island!

Here's one you may not know about:

Tuesday and Friday, from 6 to 4, in a corner of TJ's Oriental Food Mart in what we old-timers call the Old Kahului Shopping Center, you can find 7 eggplant for $2, and lots of other fresh veggies and fruits.

Notice the packaged pipinola (chayote) shoots, the
green papaya, and the pumpkin flowers.

Met John, the owner of TJ's, who knew my Dad from fishing days (who doesn't know my Dad?) and John related that he started his business in a section of Noda's Super Market. Now that's going back a ways (John didn't look old enough).

The eggplant? My Dad likes it sliced julienne style and fried with shoyu, and I'll be looking for Eggplant Parmesan recipes...


P.S. You just never know what you'll find and who you'll meet to make your Maui day more interesting!

Full disclosure: As with all of my posts, this is a genuine, spontaneous, unsolicited, and uncompensated article.
