Haleiwa Farmers' Market finds new home | News
HALEIWA, Hawaii (AP) - A popular farmers' market on Oahu's North Shore ordered by the state to shut down has found a new home.
Organizers say the Haleiwa Farmers' Market will take place every Thursday starting this week in Waimea Valley.
The market was deemed illegal because of a state law prohibiting selling from public highways. Since 2009, the market had been operating on Sundays on a parcel of land that's zoned for agricultural use and not business. The state Department of Transportation issued a cease and desist order after officials were told by the attorney general's office that vending is prohibited on the site.
Organizers say the market had attracted 2,000 people weekly.
