The mission behind this event is to support, honor, and highlight Hawai'i's local businesses who are perpetuating Native Hawaiian culture through their products and business practices. The market happens bi-annually and features a wide range of vendors from all industries.
What does Ho'omau Hawai'i mean? Depending on the context, Ho’omau Hawai’i has many meanings (just like most Hawaiian names and phrases.) When naming this particular mākeke, we wanted a name that was broad enough to be inclusive, but specific enough that it spoke to our mission. To us, Ho’omau Hawai’i simply means “to perpetuate Hawai’i”.
