Every Saturday, The Maui Flea Market sets up shop at 310 W. Kaahumanu Ave in Kahului (on Maui Community College’s campus). It only costs $0.50 for admission, and you will surely find a great a great souvenir, Hawaiian-themed trinket, or local art that catches your eye.
Running from 7 am to noon every Saturday since I can remember, the Maui Flea Market is a collection of about 200 stands that sell anything and everything. Pick up a used surfboard or a handcrafted jewelry box made of koa wood. If you were planning to do some shopping on Maui, I highly encourage a trip to the flea market for items you wouldn’t find in Whaler’s Village, Ka’ahumanu Mall, Maui Mall, the Shops at Wailea, and on Front Street. The prices also can’t be beat, as merchandise is sold directly from local merchants and family businesses.
Some of the more popular stands sell handmade soaps and lotions mixed on Maui, flower leis and puka shell necklaces, and freshly picked local fruits and vegetables. I always head to the flea market if friends on the mainland want me to pick them up some cheesy Hawaiian souvenirs like t-shirts, ikaika helmets (rear view mirror ornaments), scented picture frames, etc. The prices really can’t be beat anywhere else on the island. Trust me, I have searched!
