Aloha Oahu Fresh Members!
Another great bag this week featuring GIGANTIC pak choi coming from the amazing Ms. Jackie Akuna and her high school students at Leileihua High School. Many of the farms are low in production right now due to all the rain we’ve had in the past few weeks, but they’re still able to bring in some great items again this week!
