Opened in November 2007, the property was thoughtfully procured and refurbished by the WCA, backed by public and private funding. It serves as a retail market and an incubator that showcases local produce, meats, seafood, crafts, and other items. The Waipahu Festival Marketplace stands as a phoenix rising from the ashes, designed to revitalise Waipahu’s town core following the shuttering of Oahu Sugar Mill, Arakawa’s Store, and Big Way Supermarket in the 1990s. The WCA envisioned this marketplace and incubator as a unique means of delivering economic and social benefits to the community.
