Maui: swap meet

Hubby told me about the Maui Swap meet in Kahului that happens every Saturday. Even though it's a little bit of a drive, I thought why not. My mom took the almost one hour drive and enjoyed every bit of the scenery. It was mountains on our right and the coast on the left as we made the trek from Kapalua Bay.

Admission to the swap meet is only 50 cents and parking is free! It was very organized and clean layout at the Maui Community College too. There were three rows full of tented vendor booths selling Hawaiian souvenirs, trinkets, clothing, to estate sales. The best part was the farmer's market. My mom bargained with the Ilocana ladies in Tagalog. It's interesting that you buy vegetables by piece for a few cents. 50 cents to 80 cents for a bittermelon, eggplant, okra, etc.  I loved getting fresh coconut juice too from a Hawaiian man who was carving coconuts away.

I definitely recommend this spot if you're traveling to Maui!
