HONOLULU (KHON2) — Aloha Stadium Swap Meet & Marketplace on Thursday made an announcement on Instagram saying it has implemented mitigations “to limit the size and crowding to reduce the potential for community spread of COVID-19.”
To curb community spread, Aloha Stadium has paused its daily (one-offs) vendor sales until further notice and said it will be limiting the shopper count at any given time.

That means only monthly vendors will be able to sell its wares, a measure that will result in a reduction of up to 20% of vendors.
Vendors who have committed to the monthly stalls — roughly 80% of all vendors on site — will remain open, according to Samantha Spain, Aloha Stadium’s Sales & marketing specialist.
In addition, there will be temporary closures of the parking lot when shopper capacity (50% of the average at any given time) has been reached.
To enforce social distancing, vendors will be further separated by placing a vacant parking space (9 feet) between each booth. Staff will be trained and deployed to ensure social distancing is maintained.
