After shopping the seemingly endless rows of bargains, don’t forget to pick yourself up some sweet Hawaiian fruits and refreshing coconuts.
The fresh coconuts are one of the best parts of this swap meet! The coconut is cut open in front of you with a machete!
After you finish drinking your coconut water, bring it back to the man with the machete to have the coconut cut in half. You can eat the coconut meat! He ended up cutting a piece of the coconut shell that became out makeshift spoon. Using the spoon, we scraped the layer of coconut meat loose. Yum!
I recommend showing up early because it does get crowded and HOT! Bring a hat, sunscreen, water and your sunnies.
