Haleki’i Market is inviting the community to its first annual Keiki Day on Saturday, May 1. The event will take place on Kona Grill House Grounds 81-951 Haleki’i Street in Kealakekua.

In early 2021, Haleki’i Farmers Market and Craft Fair (HKM) extended an invitation to keiki entrepreneurs of Hawai‘i Island, and several exceptional kids responded to the call.

With the collaboration of local business owners, cultural art-infused guided workshops and on-site guidance, current Keiki Entrepreneur candidates are presenting their offerings at the weekly market. Some of these include beauty aides, custom tech-art printing products, artisanal crafts, personalized home decor products and specialized desserts.

The program has flourished and keiki are a market highlight for new and returning weekly visitors.

On May 1, HKM will be hosting a day-long celebration highlighting Keiki Entrepreneur booths. It will also feature the following:
