Best places to buy fresh seafood in Oahu

We're a party of foodies staying in Haleiwa for 5 days and plan to cook/grill at home. We'd like to know where we could get fresh local seafood and markets that carry local produce. Preferabley in the North shore area, but we are happy to drive anywhere for good seafood.

  1. Young's, Tamashiro and Yama's are the places in Honolulu, other than that your best bet might be the Farmer's markets in Waialua and Haleiwa on Saturday and Sunday. If those days don't work, Safeway in Mililani has good seafood.

        Luibueno's in Haleiwa will bring in fresh fish for you if your not near Honolulu.

          We have a Mexican Food Fan in our party. Will definitely check it out!

    2. The two farmer's markets are considered excellent...have not been to the newer one in Haleiwa but the Waialua market at the old sugar mill is a real slice of the old North Shore. Don't recall any seafood except for fresh shrimp from Kahuku, which are delicious. We just steam them and make a soy sauce based dipping sauce for them. (These are the farm raised shrimp and prawns from the ponds -- the shrimp trucks all use frozen shrimp, except two permanent spots that raise their own. One has a sign offering fresh live in addition to cooke.)
