SALT at Our Kakaʻako - 660 Ala Moana Blvd.

SALT at Our Kaka‘ako is breathing new life into one of Hawai‘i’s time honored traditions with Pa‘akai Marketplace, a premier monthly series celebrating the culture and spirit of the islands in Our Kakaʻako, an innovative and urban community.

This month taking place on July 21 & 22 from 5-9:00 p.m.

In traditional times, in the area now known as SALT at Our Kaka‘ako—community members would gather to make pa‘akai, or sea salt, while farmers and fishermen would trade and share other valuable resources. In keeping with these customs, and to pay homage to the history behind this thriving community, SALT at Our Kaka‘ako continues this distinction as the gathering place of the Honolulu area with the Pa‘akai Marketplace.

Pa‘akai Marketplace is a free family and pet friendly event that will be held at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako every third Friday and Saturday of the month. Join the fun on July 21 & 22. In addition to great shopping, live music and performances will be held throughout the evening.
