Small local farmer's market from organic vegetables to all kind healthy grubs! They sell fresh tropical flowers, honey, Asian delicacies and tons of veggies. I always buy papayas here! They open early, parking is limited and kind of crowded at times. Come early and leave early lol.

Great produce but was very thin on anything else. It appears Wednesday and Saturdays are the days to go. Can't complain though as we managed to have some fresh fruit and prices reasonable.

this was the best farmer's market - our first time in the tropics, and we had such wonderful fruit that we'd never seen or heard of before - especially the longan. Also could purchase a coconut with a hole drilled in it with room for a straw, making for extremely fresh & delicious coconut water. Also bought some bento boxes... More

I love going to farmer's market any time that I am in Hilo. The fresh fruits and veggies are every day, but the market days are Wed and Sat.

We were lucky to go to the farmers market on a day when there were no cruise ships, so it was not too crowded. Try the fruits and vegetables you can't get at home. The locals are happy to share how to cook or prepare them. Its a good place for souvenirs as well.

The main town of Hilo doesn't have alot going for it but they are really trying to make it go. There is a good museum dedicated to tsunami's and one of the big attractions is the locals market. A good mix of local produce, flowers, organics and artisan items are on offer. Beware of prices when the cruise ships are... More

This place is a dream. There are dozens and dozens of small booths with produce, baked goods, edibles and crafts including clothes and jewelry and more! We found several little treasures to eat and bring back home. Don't forget to bring bags!!!

In Hawaii there are a lot of markets like this and residents believe in supporting local businesses, which I think is fantastic. So, when in Hilo we followed suit and did what the locals do. We stopped here everyday during our visit and picked up fresh fruit to take with us on our journeys. It was great!
