About Maui Prime Fine Foods
Long before proprietors Karin and Cary Button opened
Maui Prime Fine Foods, this duo has played a part in the
growth of Maui's culinary scene. In 1980, Cary Button, a
graduate of The Culinary Institute of America in New York,
moved to Maui and began working as a chef in several of
the island's well-known restaurants. Recognizing a need
for chefs to supplement the island's fresh fish bounty with
difficult-to-find cold water seafood, he established a seafood
importing business called Oyster Seafood. Maui restaurants
and hotels were able to take advantage of the consistent
quality of the pristine oysters and clams that Cary flew in
fresh from his home state of Washington, and his business
and reputation flourished.
Mauians also know Karin and Cary Button as the prior
owners of Fish & Game Brewing Company & Rotisserie
in Kahana - West Maui's first microbrewery.
Maui Prime Fine Foods was established as, once again,
the Buttons noticed there was a niche to be filled on Maui.
With many gourmet foods and specialty food products
difficult to procure on Maui, the Buttons decided to bring
these products to food lovers at the retail level. They
opened their gourmet market at Emerald Plaza in 2006.
An expansive deli case features the seafood specialties
that Oyster Seafood is known for. Meat selections
in an adjacent case include a large array of Snake River
Farms' American-style Kobe beef, along with an array of
their American-style Kurobuta Pork. A third deli case is
well-stocked with a variety of imported and domestic cheeses,
along with an array of tempting side dishes. The shop is also
lined with pantry shelves offering up dozens of types of spices,
dry rubs, condiments, marinades, olive oils, vinegars, crackers,
pastas, cookies and chocolates. An eclectic selection of
fine wines fills the wine case.
With Chef Will Hawkins also available as part of the culinary
team at Maui Prime Fine Foods, residents and visitors have
plenty of help when it comes to assistance with recipes,
cooking instructions, the selection of ingredients for a
perfect gourmet picnic or special event - or simply a
wonderful meal to be enjoyed with family or friends.
Maui Prime Fine Foods is also an ideal choice for
those planning dinner parties or other celebrations, who
wish to order party platters for pick-up.
Maui Prime Fine Foods is located in Emerald Plaza in
Lahaina, and is open Tuesday through Saturday, from
11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
