On Fridays, there is a farmer's market by the UHM campus center (on the bookstore entrance side, in front of ATM machines). They typically start setting up around 7:30 am and start breaking down around 2:00 pm. It is convenient to buy fresh fruits and vegetables there instead of hiking up to Mānoa or go into town.

There is so much information available on the Islands. But here is some place to start at:  O'ahu Vacation Planner 2016-2017 by the Hawaii Tourism Authority. They have information on outer islands, too.
