Pāhoa Malama Market Reopens!

9:07 PM · Mar 31, 2021

At 10am this morning Malama Market in Pahoa opened their doors in the new Puna Kai shopping center for the first time. Long lines formed as customers were eager to see the new establishment for the first time, and get some items they may have been low on after the one month closure of Pāhoa's largest supermarket. Inside there is a recently completed large 26ft hand-painted mural "O Wai Oe," meaning "who are you?" The mural was designed and completed by students and faculty of the Hawaii Academy of Arts & Sciences, directed by Shelby Smith. Malama Market has COVID-19 policies in place, including limiting the amount of customers and a mask policy.
