Grocery on Kona coast

We stayed at the Mauna Lanai resort a year or two ago, and a new upscale grocery was being built in a nearby shopping center. We plan to return to that wonderful area and wonder if the new store ever opened. Any mention of their specialties would be appreciated!

  1. CS,
    Yes indeed the shop has opened as of last december. it is called Foodland farms. An upscale market with a wide variety of goods. Fresh seafood, deli, liquor, Bakery etc.. Just what the area needs. Prices are modest for the area and they take the Maili'Kai card.

      Thanks, easily amused! That's what we wanted to hear.

        Is that card the same as the MaiKai'i card? If you don't have one like most stores they have a blank one that they can scan for you. We were there in March and it is a really lovely store with lots of nice things to buy for snacks if you are at the hotel or full grocery if at a condo/house. They had a really nice section of pre-made foods as well and a really large wine/liquor selection.

          I think we are both speaking of the same grocery discount card 'Maika'i "
          I did not have it in front of me when I originally posted.. so added a couple of extra letters oops...
          Great little store as you said. Really a lovely selection of deli items to go and prepped meals.Fresh flowers, fruit, cheeses,olives. Quite handy if you don't have time to run up to the village
