From Anahola Hawaiian Homes

The nonprofit Anahola Hawaiian Homes Association and its board dreamed of opening an inclusive open marketplace on Kauai since 2006. It would be a place where local vendors could afford to sell their products, and food vendors could create ono foods.

In 2011, the organization took a big step toward achieving its dream,  completing a certified kitchen and creating an outdoor marketplace. This month, AHHA reached another milestone, opening a dinner-time supper club at the Anahola Marketplace, which is operated by the Homestead Community Development Corporation, a tax-exempt arm of AHHA.

"We're open Friday and Saturday night from 6 to 9 p.m. every week," said Melanie Freitas, marketplace administrative assistant. "The food is amazing, with a three-course menu, and you can't beat the casual outdoor dining."

"We have projects on Kauai and Hawaii island, that range from the marketplace and cafe here in Anahola, to a commercial grade solar farm on 55 acres, the construction of a commerce center in Kekaha and an agricultural park in Waimea Hawaii Island," said Robin Puanani Danner, HCDC board president. "All of the HCDC projects support our nonprofit mission of promoting economic development in Hawaiian Home Land areas for Hawaiians."
