TIMES SUPERMARKETS ORANGE SESAME SALMON
Times Supermarket’s is part of the Hawaii landscape and not only takes care of our groceries but also serves up ono Poke, and plate lunches. Representing Times in the Cooking Hawaiian Style kitchen is Kauai Food Service Supervisor, Chelsea Kea.
Times Supermarkets started as a dream over 75 years ago on the sugar plantations of Hawaii. Albert and Wallace Teruya, who were sons of Okinawan immigrants, dreamed of creating a successful business in the “land of opportunity” which Hawaii was to thousands of immigrants and their offspring. They succeeded in opening their first supermarket in 1949 and today is one of the leading supermarket operations in Hawaii.
TIMES has grown to include 24 supermarket locations which includes 17 TIMES locations, 5 Big Save Markets, a small-format supermarket on the East Side of Oahu (Shima’s Supermarket), a fine wine + specialty foods shop (Fujioka’s Wine Times), and in-store pharmacies on Oahu and Maui. Chelsea shares some of the recipes you can find in Times stores.
