Foodland Farms Pearl City: New Store, Same Family

Attention, shoppers! In case you missed the good news, Foodland Farms Pearl City is now open!

The grand opening on Wednesday, October 30, came after a month of anticipation following the closure of the original Foodland Pearl City location, which served the nearby community for more than 60 years.

Reusable bags in hand, hundreds of eager customers gathered in masses around the storefront excited to catch a glimpse of their new neighborhood supermarket, talk story with Foodland CEO and Chairman Jenai S. Wall and shop the store’s new and exclusive offerings designed especially for Pearl City.

One thing's for sure, this isn't your grandmother's Foodland. The new store blends everything Pearl City residents loved about their former Foodland with Foodland Farms’ modern, reimagined, yet always distinctly local food shopping and dining experiences.

Eat Local (Produce) Today!

Have you ever wondered where your fruits and veggies come from? We hope you have and we hope the answer is, well, home.

Here at Foodland, we’re committed to eating local today – and every day – by providing our customers with the highest quality of local produce in the islands. Which is why we turn to our backyard to stock our produce section, from the rich volcanic soil of Maui’s Haleakala, to the lush forests of Waimanalo, to remote farms on Molokaʻi.

Join us in our pledge to eat local and you’ll be supporting local farmers in their efforts to cultivate Hawaii’s food supply and improve sustainability in our state.

Certified Angus Beef® passes 10 quality standards, making it superior to USDA prime. It’s the most tender, juicy and flavorful beef on the market, and it’s exclusively at Foodland!
