Much of the produce here, such as organic vine-ripened tomatoes and organic onions, is grown in the fertile upcountry soil of Kula. The salad bar is one of the most popular food stops on the coast.
Best Health Food Store, Winner Hawaiian Moons Address: 2411 S. Kihei Rd., Kihei, HI 96753 Phone: 808-875-4356 Website: http://hawaiianmoons.com This time around, Hawaiian Moons beat out all other Maui natural foods titans to take the islandís top status as Best Health Food Store. So what kind of (soy-) beefing up does such an establishment do to accomplish this? As a long-time vegan I can vouch for this place, especially given their expansive supply of pesto sans Parmesan, and their vegan chocolate cake. But what stands out most here at Hawaiian Moons isnít their hot food choices, or extensive salad bar, but the huge focus on locally made and grown products. Letís all imagine an island where shipping costs for fresh produce and organic products donít exist. Hawaiian Moons is taking us there one Kula strawberry at a time.
