The scene: As if Hawaii weren’t utopian enough, a stroll through the KCC market, at the base of the Diamond Head crater, makes you want to move to Oahu immediately. Arrive early, like 7:30 a.m. early, before the mobs. The find: Impossible to choose just one, with so many when-in-Hawaii products: Kukui’s Portuguese sausage; just-caught, grilled-to-order Kona abalone; and swaths of subtropical fruit, including fresh, silky litchi, juicy pineapple guavas, and super-sweet sugar pineapples.
4303 Diamond Head Rd.
Open every Tuesday and Saturday year-round.
