Hukilau Marketplace, at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, is a vintage throwback to 1950’s Hawaii offering nostalgic food, local goods and everyone-is-family hospitality. ('Ohana) The hukilau became a popular, impromptu luau experience for visitors in the 1940s and 1950s. They would come to Laie, watch the netting of fish, then enjoy the feast and music with community members on the beach. When you enter the Hukilau Marketplace you feel like you are stepping back in time.
The Marketplace offers a variety of dining and shopping experiences, plus daily live music and dance performances. Souvenirs, aloha wear, island home décor, Hawaiian jewelry, Polynesian art and more await you – as does free parking and clean restrooms. click here for more info
