There’s No Grocery Store Quite Like This One Hidden In Hawaii

There is little better than finding fresh fruits and vegetables in Hawaii. Unfortunately, because so much of the food produced in our beautiful state gets exported, the produce we find at grocery stores often doesn’t last too long, considering it has been shipped to the islands. This grocery store, nestled inside the walls of a former pineapple cannery, is the exception, specializing in fresh, locally grown produce as well as a variety of other goods.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Pauwela Store is located at 375 W Kuiaha Rd., Haiku, HI 96708, and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information about our new favorite grocery store, head to their website or follow them on Facebook.

There’s truly no better grocer to stop for road snacks in Haiku, whether you’re headed towards upcountry Maui or along the Hana Highway.
