Product delivery time and place and what to expect

You need to deliver your products on Thursdays 9AM-4PM to:
SunFresh Maui

You need to bring in an invoice of the goods you sold and we will pay you on the spot. The produce should be in good shape and the amount you sold. If there is a problem with the produce we will talk about it. We understand life happens. Our goal is to create a successful market for our farmers and our/your customers.
Vendor invoice is required to get paid!!!!

Plant starts and flowers

We are not set up to keep your flowers or plant starts at SunFresh and do no have the means to package them.
If you want to sell plant starts via our market you need to bring them to the pickup locations on the distribution day.
If you want to sell to each distribution location – you need to send someone to each place: Central Maui, Upcountry and Kihei. We do not have the option of selling flowers and starts in Lahaina.

Produce packaging

SunFresh does bagging of units. For example if we sell your beans in 2 lbs packages, we will purchase the number of pounds you sell and package the beans in 2 lb bags.   Leafy greens need to be delivered wrapped in plastic. This is a necessary evil because leafy greens will wilt otherwise. Additionally. the plastic bags need to have puka’s so the produce can ‘breathe‘,
We are interested in innovation here. If you have ideas,please tell us about it.
