Groceries, Gourmet Goodies and Great Gifts Can All Be Found at Foodland

We shop here for EVERYTHING. Especially during the holi-yay season!


The weather outside may be frightful, but shopping at Foodland for all your festive needs is quite delightful—and convenient. For instance, need something fun for four-legged Fido? Check. Need local-inspired greeting cards to send to loved ones away? Check, check. Need something sweet for a small-one’s stocking? Check, check, check. And there’s so much more in store: local wines and cheeses, pre-made gift boxes, flourishing florals and plants, pupu party platters, fresh-made desserts and all the ingredients you need to create a delicious season’s eatings spread. Below, are all the special gifts and goodies we found for family, friends and holiday feasting.


We found all this and so much more when we scouted our favorite Foodlands—Foodland Farms Pearl City and KAHALA MKT. by Foodland—for the holidays.
