Could a meeting of the minds squash the dispute that has shut down The Haleiwa Farmer's Market? The weekly event is off this Sunday because of a State law that says vending from highways is prohibited. It's a technical thing since the stretch wear growers have sold their goods hasn't been used as a road since the 1990's. The Market's owners received a letter this week, telling them it could no longer continue. The State has allowed the Farmer's Market to operate on the old stretch of Kamehameha Highway rent free since 2006. We'll follow developments on Hawaii News Now and you can see both sides of the story here.
