First photo: Malaika Darville (left) of Makawao shares a laugh with La'a Kea Community Farm Stand staffer Ali King on Tuesday afternoon in Paia. The stand across from Paia Gym features fresh produce grown on Maui and coffee grown on Molokai. The stand is a fundraiser for the La'a Kea Foundation, which is an agriculturally based program that helps adults with special needs. "I think it is fantastic," Darville said. "The more local and the more fresh the better."
Second photo: Tomatoes from Haiku are on display at the stand.
