I love Mari's Garden produce and I also love Gardens! While shopping at Chef Zone, I bought a bag of baby romaine and it happen to be Mari's Garden's produce. I am amazed at how fresh the romaine taste, I did a Yelp search and came across one of my... read more Yelp friend's review.
Ever since that day I purchased the romaine, I had Mari's Garden bookmarked for the longest time.
I wanted to check out the garden, since I love the produce so much and I am super Happy, I finally did, this past week.
I took my family along, made it a family outing and also brought my mom and sister. I had to bring my mom as she is the one that loves gardening and this is the reason amazing beautiful baby nursery decoration ideas: 2018 that I love gardens! It is tucked away in a residential area in Mililiani, As other Yelpers mentioned, you would not know there is a garden in this residential area.. It wasn't hard to find, per our phone's GPS it lead us directly to the gardens. You will see the huge Mari's Garden sign, parking is right out side in front of the fence. Be prepare for the little rocks as you exit your car.
I am weird but I did get excited before my trip to Mari's garden, I thanked my other half for driving me here. As you enter,In the front of garden, there are plants and pots for sale. Potted plants are limited.
The friendly general manager that we met that day, he is in charge of sales, he mentioned that whatever you see at the garden, it is for sale! He mentioned the Buddha in front of store, has been sold.
I headed straight into Mari's store, which is where you will find produce for sale, along with other items. I already had the baby romaine lettuce on my mind. I purchased 2 bags of romaine along with Reed Avocado, which is from the garden. Besides produce for Mari's garden, they also have produce from 2 other farms, Aloun & Ho Farms. I think this is a good thing to sale produce from other farms and not just Mari's Garden.
The produce that are available are:
Lettuce ( Baby Romaine, Butter, Manoa, Mixed) 3.99 a bag
Tomatoes ( Grape, Katama)
Cara Cara Oranges
Avocado ( Reed) 2.00 lb
Honeydew, Cantalope, Thai Watermelon, Kabocha, Long Beans, Okinawan Sweet Potato, Eggplant, Zucchini,& Apple Banana, all from Aloun Farms.
At Mari's store, you will also find salad dressings, few local products, t-shirts, succulent plants, and a little jewelry kiosk near the entrance.

During my visit, we were lucky to get a tour of the farm, ( check on line for tour information, 2 types of tour are available and no tours on weekends) The tour was so cool, I got to see the hydroponics, where all lettuce are planted. There are tons of them, I got to see all the fruit trees, behind the scenes. All this takes place on 17 acres of property, which was previously owned by the Watanabe's. What I also learned is nothing goes to waste at the garden, I saw goats during our tour, they feed the goats the old produce. I enjoyed the behind the scene tour of Mari's Garden. Oh, from their biggest Aquaponic farm, fresh tilapia are also for sale at 12.00 lb.
Mari's Garden is named after the owner's daughter, who is now away in college. Mari's Garden was established in 2007.
Overall, I had a wonderful first time experience visiting Mari's Garden. I was happy to get my produce directly from the source, Mari's Garden. Come check them out, support local, you won't be disappointed!
Before I end my review, once you taste Mari's baby romaine, you will want only Mari's romaine. It is really fresh and I can taste the difference from Mari's and the romaine from other source. A bag cost 3.99 which comes with 6-7 romaine, thats cheap!!
A quick FYI: Mari's Garden is opened from Tuesday-Saturday, 7:00-3:30 PM.
