Kalei’s Kitchenette sets up shop on the island of Rancho Peñasquitos
A Hawaiian farmers market stand finds a home in the suburbs.

Into Rancho Peñasquitos I drove, for only the second time ever. There might as well be an ocean between us. I was following the trail of a farmers market vendor that has made the move to into its own storefront. Even when it doesn’t involve Hawaiian food, I always find it inspiring to witness these stories of young entrepreneurs that turn limited resources, and lots of moxie, into dreams come true. And if it does happen to involve Hawaiian food, like Kalei's Kitchenette does, I’ll probably drive a little faster.
