Excellent fresh fruit and flowers on one side of street, and terrific craft fair across the street. All covered by tents, was raining super hard, barely got wet. Great bargains, and many unique items, not just touristy stuff.

The best part of the Hilo Farmers Market was lunch. The four of us all split up to go different places. I chose the Thai Smile food truck and it was delicious. The woman was very accommodating stir fried only the veges I wanted and she was very sweet. We bought a few gifts in the market…great handmade bracelets and... More

This was an excellent farmers market. We went on a Wednesday which is suppose to be one of the better days but there was an excellent variety of produce and crafts. The mangos and the white sweet pineapple where especially good. My wife also bought a number of sun dresses here for about half the price they would have been... More

This small market has all kinds of drinks and foods and ripe fruits and vegetables, and baked goods including gluten free bread, you will not see elsewhere. It's an experience, and reasonably priced. Imagine buying honey from passion fruit flowers, and almond milk flavored with dates and cane sugar. And popsicles of coconut milk, avocado and something sweet - delicious!... More

During every visit I stop by the Hilo Farmer's Market - either on a Wednesday or Saturday and spend a few hours there - I like looking at/buying all the fresh produce, juice, food, etc. - some of the craft items are the same "cheap souvenirs" you see everywhere, but some of the items are very unique and handmade by...

Seemed like a good market for locals to buy essentials. However, was not impressed with the breadth or scope of items offered by local artisans.

While I am not a shopper, I did enjoy checking out the various stalls selling local food, crafts, and artwork. We went on a Wednesday which is one of the days when more vendors are there.

Great for local plate lunch, Sushi, Spam Musubi, flowers, fruits, vegetables and souvenirs. Found Balsamic vinegar infused with local ingredients very gourmet . One of my favorite island treats is Spam Musubi, ono. Handcrafted one of a kind items by local people can be found at the market. Worth a visit.

If you live here, it is a useful place to shop for veggies and flowers. It no longer has the variety of independent gardeners it had even a few years ago. When I asked the various mostly Chinese women who were selling, they admitted that nothing was home grown and in most cases, not even locally sourced. We used to... More

had a fun afternoon with all the vendors selling many fruits and vegetables we would not get on the main land. Lots of food vendors selling the local foods that are amazing. Plus local vendors selling from jewelry to clothing…. neat place
