Portuguese Bread Baking

Kona volunteers bake bread the traditonal way and sell it for a good cause

Every Thursday, workers and volunteers with the Kona Historical Society fire up a traditional stone oven to bake authentic Portuguese sweet bread. 

People can come down to the large wood-fired forno, located in the pasture below the H.N. Greenwell Store Museum, and roll dough and learn about this traditional method of bread-making. 

The first batches come out at around 1 p.m. and are sold at the nonprofit’s roadside stand.
