This summer, Waikiki gains a fresh, new and localized attraction – The Royal Farmers’ Market 220 Experience – hosted by The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort.

It’s no secret that our islands are home to an abundance of fresh farm produce and specialty products, from apple bananas to sweet papaya and pineapples, macadamia nuts to marmalades, coffees to cool drinks and from meats and poultries to lavender and tropical flowers.

Thanks to the ever popular markets such as KCC’s Saturday morning affair, which attracts bus loads of tourists and locals alike, the visitors and residents of Honolulu have first hand access to the best of Hawaii’s produce.

That said, never before has a Roving Brunch comprised of the highest quality ingredients from Hawaii’s top farmers holding food quality permits been added to the Farmers’ Market mix, until recently, that is. Chef Hans Stierli envisioned a summer brunch experience beneath the banyan trees where guests could not merely meet, mingle and take home produce, but taste a vast assortment of elegantly prepared and locally inspired dishes. This Sunday you can see his vision come to life and enjoy an indigenous, high quality, gourmet spread at its freshest and finest!

The menu is as mesmerizing as The Royal's tropical garden oasis setting, and includes fruit smoothies, red veal loco moco, taro pancakes, ahi sashimi, Yukon gold potato salad, spiced macadamia nut salad, slow roasted ribeye, braised sirloin, charcoal grilled flat iron steak, Pier 38 sautéed fried rice, lavender scones, malasadas, tapioca pudding and a chocolate fondue accompanied by fresh strawberries and shortbread cookies.

A new and unique experience not to be missed, the Roving Summer Brunch begins this Saturday June 19th, Father’s Day, and runs between 10am and 2pm. The venue is unmistakable, lined by swaying palms and set to the picturesque façade of the “Pink Palace” resort, yet tranquil and secluded from the hustle and bustle behind the Cheesecake Factory wing of the Royal Hawaiian Center.

Brunch is $48 per adult and $32 per child (excluding tax and service charge/gratuity). Bookings and inquiries are taken through the Starwood Dining Desk: 808-921-4600.

Fresh Tips: 1. Valet parking is available at The Royal Hawaiian and is complimentary for the first four hours with validation after enjoying brunch. 2. Photographs from the last brunch can be viewed on The Royal Hawaiian’s Facebook page by clicking here.

Hot Question: Why "220"? The Hawaiian islands are spread across a 220 mile radius, thus The Royal Hawaiian quite literally brings Hawai'i to your table!
