Aloha Carol! I'm in Honolulu too. I just discovered the Paleo diet a week ago. I'm new to the city so still need to find best places to buy grass-fed beef and healthy local cooking. Any tips?
The best place I've found to buy grass fed beef is Kualoa Ranch just north of Kaneohe. They have a two refrigerators in their cafe full of various cuts of beef. You see their cattle chewing grass as you drive up to the main building. The beef is really tasty and the price is good. I was buying some grass fed beef at the Farmer's market but it was quite expensive. I haven't found good chicken yet. Let me know if you find grass fed or open range chickens! If I can figure out how to "friend" you on here, I'll do it. I just moved here four months ago. Aloha!

North Shore Cattle Company has/had good prices, but their website has been down for awhile, I'm not sure if they are still open or not. You can check the KCC Market. They have some other vendors from Molokai, BI etc. that are a litte more pricey.
