Welcome to the

Sust ʻāina ble Molokai Mobile Market

Molokai Emergency Food Coordination

If you are interested in contributing to our COVID-19 emergency food coordination efforts, please go to our homepage (sustainablemolokai.org) to learn about how you can help!

Your one-stop shop for buying and selling Molokai-grown and produced foods.

Every week we post fresh, locally-grown produce, poi, grass-fed beef, shrimp, and other products made right here on Molokai. Our Molokai-based growers and producers name their price and post their product availability. Customers make their selections through our easy-to-use online sales platform.

Our Mission

is to increase local production and consumption—to promote healthy eating, and to support our local agricultural and food producing community.

We hope you enjoy shopping, purchasing, cooking with, and eating the Molokai products available through our Mobile Market. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or other manaʻo.

How It Works

Dear Mobile Market ʻOhana,

We have made some significant changes to the market format and have explained them in detail below. Notable among these are our decisions to strip down our operations by discontinuing our farm table sales, the Pop-Up Cafe, and payment on location. Additionally, we have condensed the pickups on the West End from two locations on Thursday to one site in Maunaloa (where there is ample room to accommodate market traffic) on Friday.

Please read our new public safety protocols carefully, as it is certain that there are changes that affect you. Additionally, whether you are a farmer or a customer, we hope that reading these plans will build your confidence in the Mobile Market and your commitment to participating in establishing a secure food system for Molokai as we weather this challenging time. 

We will also continue to monitor the news and make decisions in the best interests of our collective health and well-being. If at any point we feel that the risk of running the market outweighs the critical need we perceive at this time for fresh, healthy, locally grown food, we will make the hard choice to shut down. That being said, please know that we intend to carry on with our mission of bringing fresh, local food to you. 

Mahalo nui loa to all for your patience and respect for one another as we go forward.  

With love and aloha,

Your ‘Ohana at Sustainable Molokai

Sustʻāina ble Molokai’s primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our customers, staff, and community. We have implemented a detailed protocol with our farmers and producers, which will be available for you to read on our website. Most of the farmerʻs markets in the state are going to drive-through pickups, and we have determined that this is the best way to deliver your orders as well. 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE DRIVE-THROUGH MOBILE MARKET

Please click on **NEW Market Hours and Delivery Schedule below for updates to delivery locations and your assigned pickup schedule. Please take note of your new location and time slot for pick up. PLEASE DO NOT COME EARLY. We ask that you please remain in your vehicle and wait in line until it is your turn to be handed your order.

NO PAYMENTS AT PICK UP

  • We will no longer accept payment of any kind at veggie pick up. All customers will need to enter a credit card in their customer profile. You will not be able to confirm your order without a  credit card in your customer profile. All payments must be made through cards on file.  Please click this link to update your account. https://molokai.localfoodmarketplace.com/Account/Login
  • Please note: We will no longer be making individual accommodations for alternate pickups. If you do not pick up your order, your credit card will still be charged even though you will not receive your food.

OTHER IMPORTANT CHANGES AND MEASURES THAT WILL BE PUT IN PLACE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR CUSTOMERS AND STAFF:

  • All orders will be packed by our staff who are trained in proper handwashing and glove use. We will pack all orders in sanitized totes in either a new plastic bag or liner. When you come to the front of the line, we will pass you your bag/liner containing your order. Meat, shrimp, and other frozen items will be packed with your order in a separate plastic bag.
  • To minimize potential routes of transmission, we will no longer be using reusable or reused bags or boxes. You will be charged $1.00 per order for packaging materials. The decision to use new packaging was a hard decision for all of us. We know that our customers are equally committed to reducing, reusing, and recycling. However, we feel that this is the best way to safeguard the well-being of our customers and staff at this time.
  • The Mobile Market will discontinue all farm table sales, the Pop-Up Cafe, and plant sales until further notice.
  • We ask that you kokua by ordering only what you need for the week. Please keep others in mind when you are purchasing items that are in limited quantity (leafy greens, lettuce/salad mix, & root crops) by ordering no more than two of each. Please be assured that there will be more the following week. Make a note on your order if there are items of which you would like more. If they are still available at the end of the ordering period, we will add those to your order for the week. We trust that this will not be an issue, but please note that our staff reserves the right to alter orders if we feel that there is a hoarding mentality happening.
  • If at any point you or anyone else you have been in contact with begins to feel ill, please make arrangements for someone else to pick up your order.

DELIVERIES TO HOME PUMEHANA
We will continue our existing deliveries to the Home Pumehana community. However, to ensure the residents’ well-being, we will no longer be bringing your order inside your apartment.

In the interest of maintaining small groups,  we have changed the Mobile Market pick up times and locations. We ask that you come during the specific time slot based on the first letter of the last name as entered on your Customer Profile.
 
There will be no delivery to the Kaluakoi condos. We appreciate your kokua in helping us to continue running the Mobile Market and apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause.
