Each Sunday the Haleiwa Farmers Market drawn over 3,000 people to its usual gathering place on the east end of Haleiwa. Averaging 50 vendors each market day, the market serves as a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, all traveling from nearby and even island wide to socialize, purchase fresh locally grown produce, and many other locally made arts and crafts.
Wonderful food galore, amazing artistic creations, live music, a bouncy house for children, and the occasional market theme such as a tomato or taro festival, make the market a stand out activity on Oahu.
If you're on the North Shore on a Sunday, don't miss out on dropping by the farmers market from 8-2 p.m. And don't forget to bring a reusable shopping bag - no plastic allowed.
Saturday Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. This is where local artisans, and really just about anyone looking for a fun night on the town, gather to enjoy and display various types of art. Music is usually offered at several locations around town, and galleries have special displays and sometimes drinks and appetizers.
Basically, you just need to park somewhere in town and just explore. Shopping can be part of it, but isn't necessary. Everyone is either opening their shop's doors or entering a shop's doors to socialize and explore the goods. The Bonzer Front at the west end of town holds wine tastings early in the night, a great place to begin.
Art Walk is a must if you're on the North Shore on a Saturday night and is worth the drive even if you're elsewhere.
