Open daily 8:30am-8:30pm.

Whole 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.
.



Fresh Mint  115 Baldwin Ave., Pa'ia  808-579-9144  Vegan, Vietnamese, Thai. A casual setting offering exquisite fresh cuisine that is flavorful and authentic. Try the Fresh Mint salad and Pho soup noodle. Open daily 11am-9pm  (Best to call ahead...)
.
Joy's Place  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 Mon-Sat 10am-5pm.
