I have never seen so many tropical fruits and other delicious items. One can buy anything from Dragonfruit to Struitfruit, Apple Bananas, Strawberry Mangos, just to mention a few. Lot's of the fruits I have never seen so I don't know what they are. It's just amazing. Coffee is offered as well as local jellies and honey.

It is open on Wed and Sat in downtown Hilo. Several kinds of vendors are there and across the street are more. Fruits and veggies and always fresh. The prices are reasonable!

The Hilo Farmers Market was rated the best Farmers Market in the country by the Huffington Post. I don't know how accurate this is but I do know it has a great selection of produce all year round. Everything is locally grown, very little boxed goods and beautifully displayed. Because of the all year round growing season in Hawaii you... More

We were done here in 5 Minutes. Not much variety and many vendors looked extremely bored. Very low energy. We bought some lunch, which was actually pretty good, but we could not find a good spot to eat. Hilo is covered with shady street people. Everywhere it smelled of urine. What a dump! Couldn't wait to get out of there.... More

Had fun there, but don't go out of your way to go. Found a better farmers market in Pahoa about 30 miles away. Better prices and better selection.

This is a wonderful outdoor market filled with art, exotic fruits, flowers, history and delicious homemade salads, cheeses, and baked goods. Go hungry and enjoy a fresh Green Papaya Salad, local cheeses and desserts. Once you have stuffed yourself don't forget to cruise the stalls filled with hand made arts, crafts and jewelry. I took some of my best photos... More

I was expecting it to be a larger farmers market. It seemed more like people just set up tables and tents. I did a quick walk through and left. I just could not bring myself to spend much time there. Maybe it was because I was there during the week. Perhaps it's a little better on the weekends.

Wish we had nore than an hour to visit here but we had reservations elsewhere. You can find produce on one side of the street and crafts on the other. Much better quality items here than at the Kona market. T-shirts and jewelry of course at both places, but better designs and craftsmanship.in Hilo. Kona market has many booths with... More
