Cruise to Oahu’s Largest Farmers Market with Aston Hotels & Resorts’ Trolley Rides
HONOLULU, HI (Aug. 3, 2010) – Aston Hotels & Resorts is inviting guests to hop on one of Honolulu’s iconic trolleys on Saturday mornings and cruise to Oahu’s largest farmers market, full of food, gifts, flowers and more – all grown or made in Hawaii.
The Saturday Farmers Market on the grounds of Kapiolani Community College is just a short ride from Waikiki, on a hillside overlooking Honolulu and the Pacific Ocean. With more than 60 vendors, the Saturday Farmers Market offers a wide selection of fresh produce, seafood, eggs, cuisine, flowers and specialty gifts, such as coffee, locally-made tropical jams, honey, snacks and baked goods.
The market is held nearly every Saturday year-round from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. No reservations are necessary for the trolley rides. Fares are $3 one-way and $5 roundtrip during scheduled pick-up times and payment should be made directly to driver. Guests staying at any Aston hotel or condominium resort in Waikiki may ride the trolley and can board at any of the convenient locations listed below.
Trolley pick-up schedule:
Aston Waikiki Joy (Lewers Street) 6:50 a.m. and 7:50 a.m.
Aston Pacific Monarch (Uluniu Street) 6:55 a.m. and 7:55 a.m.

At Aston Hotels & Resorts, each guest also receives Aston’s free Aloha Book, which contains offers worth more than $2,500 in savings on dining, shopping and activities. The book also serves as a guide to some of the best culture, history, cuisine and attractions on the island.
Aston’s year-round “Kids Stay, Play & Eat FREE” program means children 17 years and younger stay free when using existing bedding and children 12 years and younger receive free admission at top island attractions and free meals at popular family-friendly restaurants when accompanied by a paying adult. Unlike other hotel promotions that encourage kids to play and eat free within the resort, this program allows families to experience a variety of the island’s activities and dining options.Return to Main 2010 Aston Press Releases Page
