OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Calling all shoppers for OHA’s third annual pop-up holiday mākeke

HONOLULU (December 16, 2019) – Join the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) for some last-minute holiday shopping at its third annual Pop-Up Holiday Mākeke (Market) on Saturday, Dec. 21 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Nā Lama Kukui (formerly known as Gentry Pacific Design Center) at 560 N. Nimitz Highway.

The free event will include arts, crafts, apparel and other products by more than 70 Native Hawaiian and local vendors featuring Ari South, Kahailimanu, Kini Zamora and Manaola.

“What makes our Pop-Up Holiday Mākeke special is that it features so many talented, Native Hawaiian and other local artists, designers and small businesses,” said Sylvia Hussey, OHA Ka Pouhana (CEO). “The mākeke is one of OHA’s initiatives, along with our Mālama and Hua Kanu business loan programs, that support Native Hawaiian entrepreneurship. And since the mākeke takes place right before Christmas, it’s also the perfect place for customers to find last-minute holiday gifts with a Hawaiian flair.”

Specialty items at the OHA Pop-Up Holiday Mākeke will include: hand-crafted koa goods; lei hulu, lei humu papa and other feather crafts; handmade Ni‘ihau shell, bone and ‘ohe kāpala jewelry; among others. The event will also include food products for sale like poi, paʻiʻai, poke kalo, kūlolo, pālau, limu kohu chili pepper water, smoked fish, ulu chips and hummus and Uncle Lani’s Poi Mochi.

Complimentary parking will be available on site. For more information about the event, visit: https://www.oha.org/event/3rd-annual-pop-up-holiday-makeke/.
