The Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation now has its own cookbook to go with its popular weekly markets.

Edited by Joan Namkoong and Hayley Matson-Mathes, The Hawaii Farmers Market Cookbook describes 75 locally grown and raised products, gives tips on what to look for, and offers more than 100 ways to prepare them. It should be in bookstores by the end of this month.

The bureau’s first market was established three years ago by Namkoong and farmer Dean Okimoto (‘Nalo Greens).

“(The cookbook) has been a dream of mine ever since we opened the Kapiolani Community College Farmers’ Market in 2003,” said Okimoto, who is now president of the bureau. He’s hopeful that the book will “not only put delicious food on your table, but better connect you to our local growers, so that agriculture in Hawaii will continue to play an important role in our community.”

The cookbook also will be sold at the Sunday market in Mililani (8 to 11 a.m.), the Kailua Thursday Night Market (5 to 7:30 p.m.) and at KCC’s Saturday market (7:30 to 11 a.m.)
