Shinsato pork at Kokua Market

Kokua Market has recently become the only retail outlet where you can purchase Shinsato pork...locally raised and slaughtered. They have until now only sold whole pigs to restaurants.

You can otherwise only find it on the menu at Salt / 12th Ave. Grill /town / Whole Ox, etc. The cuts at Kokua are not cheap, but I recently had a share of a whole Shinsato pig thru the Slow Food group and it was delicious...hope they offer that again.

See page 2 of this link about Chef Ed Kenney and Shinsato: http://www.honolulumagazine.com/Honol...

Kokua is also carrying Big Island Kulana beef and lamb, and recently started bringing in fresh fish.
