The anniversary celebration is sponsored by Pacific Media Group and Alexander & Baldwin.

According to event co-founder and Maui Food Technology Center President, Luana Mahi, “When we started the Maui Sunday Market, our goal was to create a sense of place where people could gather, mingle with friends and neighbors, support our local vendors and absorb each other’s genuine aloha spirit.

“Today, this event has become a weekly tradition where residents and visitors are made to feel at home, further strengthening our event’s sense of ‘ohana.”
