Heart Healthy Food We Love

You don’t always have to indulge…check out these food vendors who offer a healthy and refreshing alternative to festival food.

We’re happy to welcome Banan to Honolulu Night Market this month! New to the food truck scene, they’ve created a “banana soft serve” that’s dairy-free and made from 100% local bananas. The base remains the same, but the flavors vary from pineapple coconut to ginger mint. Our Honolulu Night Market foodie tip: try the Banan Bowl that’s topped with fresh fruit, puffed quinoa, shredded coconut and honey!
