Food and Power in Hawai'i

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter examines the growing popularity of farmers’ market on Oʻahu. Farmers’ markets are often seen at the forefront of food localization nationwide. Not only farmers’ markets help local farms, they also provide a space for both consumers and farmers to start questioning the hegemonic system. The chapter critically analyzes their respective goals, constituents, and contribution to food democracy. As some farmers’ markets attract a large number of tourists from the U.S. mainland and from other countries, the author raises a concern that low-income families might be excluded from these markets.

Keywords:   farmers’ market, tourism, localization, marginalization, poverty
