Have you noticed that Ward Avenue now runs across Ala Moana Boulevard past the old Fisherman’s Wharf, and loops into Kaka’ako Makai? HPR’s Noe Tanigawa continues a portrait of the area with a look at the new Kaka’ako Makai Community Cultural Marketplace.
The Market is open Fridays 4:30 to 8pm and Saturdays 9 to 4pm. If you follow Ward Avenue all the way makai, you can't miss the tents. They're having their soft opening so don't expect the fully formed behemoth that is, for example, the glorious KCC market. There are vendors there who are not at KCC.
