Foods Market Maui Mall, 70 Ka'ahumanu Ave, Kahului
808-872-3310 It took them 30 years, but "big guy" Whole Foods finally
arrived on Maui (February, 2010). The Good: they support local growers,
and, therefore, the local economy. The Bad: For many, their prices. I know
that "healthy" and "expensive" often go hand in hand, but eating healthy,
if you don't "grow your own," shouldn't be cost prohibitive (sorry, this
is me getting off my soap box...) They also have a wide variety of food
selections for eating on the premises or takeout; "Taco Tuesdays"
are popular with tacos for $1.00 each. Open daily 8am-9pm.

1993 S. Kihei Rd, Kihei (in the Island Surf Building, entrance around the
corner on Auhana St.) 808-879-9258 Excerpted from a Frommer's
Review: "If you're in Kihei and are looking for a
healthy, delicious lunch at a rock bottom price, it's worth hunting around
for Joy's Place. This tiny hole in the wall has humongous sandwiches (turkey
and avocado or tuna salad), wheat free wraps, fresh salads, hot items (falafel
burger or the veggie burger), soups and desserts. Most items are from organic
sources. While there is (limited) indoor seating, an oceanfront park -
with picnic tables - is less than a block away." Open
