Very local, fun market

The market was great to wander through and buy some souvenirs for our kids. People were friendly, food was fresh, prices were affordable.

We were visiting Hilo on a Monday and decided to check the Farmer's Market out. There weren't many stands open but met a local women selling jewelry that was so sweet. She even took us down to another stand to try some Longan fruit. I couldn't remember the name of it, so she told me "you been long gone". We... More

We visited this market via the hop on hop off bus at hilo. The market isn't huge but takes a good few hours to walk around. You can get to see and taste the array of tropical fruits and vegetables what you would not usually get in the uk. As well as fresh produce there are a wide range of... More

This ever growing market has the best view ever..right across from Hilo bay! The market vendors are mostly local growers who offer samples, recipes, advice one some of the exotic fruit, flowers available. The prices are amazingly low and fair. This the place to try some new fruit or food. The sauces, BBQ Rubs, jams,jellies are my "Go to" for... More

We drove over from Kona to see the Volcano and stopped in to the farmers market in Hilo on our way . It is quite a bit larger than Kona's but the prices are higher , we bought a few things and talked to many nice people

This is a great Farmer's Market. There is probably the whole selection of fresh fruits and vegetables available in Hawaii sold under one roof. There is a clear bias towards Asian fruits and vegetables, with some special treats like longan, durian, and breadfruit. There are various food vendors mixed in among the fruit and vegetable sellers; there was someone selling... More

Tons of vendors with mounds of fresh fruit, souvenirs, and gifts. Go on a Wednesday or Saturday. I wish we could have bought more fruit.

If you are spending a few days in the Hilo area, plan to visit the farmers market in downtown Hilo. Great selection of fruit and produce. Bring your own shopping bags, as plastic bags no longer are given out. Very good prices! We purchased red bananas, pineapples, papayas, sweet potatoes and rambutans. Wednesday and Saturdays have more vendors

We went to Hilo farmers market on the big day there, wednesday, but I hear Saturday is the other day when it is also in full bloom (sorry). It is a typical local farmers market by first glance.....a little dirty, a little smelly, a lot of stalls, most selling the similar stuff. But what "stuff"! Five syllable fruit that I... More

We absolutely love the Hilo Farmers Market. They're open daily but have a lot more vendors on Wednesday and Saturday. You'll never know what you're going to find. The local fruit and vegetables are inexpensive and fresh. Go early in the morning for the best options everything sells fast. We purchased Mango, Pineapple Vinegarette, Keawe Honey, Glass blown earrings, freshly... More
