Grocery Shopping in Maui
We are taking a 7 night family vacation to Kapalua in February. Since we will be staying in a condo with a kitchen, we plan to make many of our meals.
We fly into Kahului airport, and ideally we would do a grocery shop on the way to Kapalua. Could folks please give me a recommendation on where we should do our grocery shopping?
There is a Costco in Kahului where you can get everything you can buy at Costco on the mainland, along with an in-store selection of beer and wine. We stock up there on cereal, milk, bagels, fruit, peanut butter, snacks, sun screen, meats, and POG. The car is usually packed with kids, food, and bags on our drive to Napili. Aside from that, you can shop at the Star Market (I think it's called) in Honokowai, just north of Lahaina. During our stay, we shop at Napili Market but it is definitely more expensive. We usually go to the flea market in Kahului on Saturday morning so we hit Costco again.
The Costco is directly across the street from Kahului airport and prices at the Safeway and other grocery stores are very expensive, so I would advise hitting up the Costco which we do at when we do the condo scene in Napili..
Best ahi poke is at Foodland..
Foodland is also very good, can't beat the poke there. You can also get an affinity card from them as well. Safeway or any of it's subsidiaries also takes their store cards. Costco usually has good prices on fish, if you're only staying a week, don't get real crazy buying everything in bulk there. Also a good farmer's market in Honokowai
Depending on the time of your arrival, there's a Costco in Kahului, a Safeway and Foodland in Lahaina, a Times Market in Honokowai, and the Napili Market in, of course, Napili.
