We were lucky to be there on Saturday and it was very nice experience. People are friendly, they offer samples of their products and talk about them. If you're hungry, you may buy some food there too- e.g. Korean cuisine...However, to find a parking space is a nightmare.

You should not miss the opportunity to visit the farmers market at Hilo. This is the one place you get all of your souvenir shopping done while getting the taste of Hawaii fruit in the great price.

This market is so nice to have its easy to stock up on many fruits and veggies. The vendors are very nice and there is a great variety of things there. There is a fruit and veggie section, as well as a craft side. I recommend trying to find hawaii balsamic if you like balsamic vinegar. They have the most... More

They had a great selection of food - fruits, veggies, pastries & more. They had a nice selection of crafts & non-food items too from what we could see. We got there at 6:30am and most of the food vendors were set up but were told that the craft vendors wouldn't be there until around 8:30 or 9. We had... More

We always stop by at this market to pickup fruit and snacks for our trip up to the volcano. Of course the selection varies with the sellers but they always have a good selection of Hawaiian fruits, vegetables, unique island snacks and eclectic items. On this last visit, one vendor had an aged balsamic vinegar infused with different fruit flavors.... More

We decided to stop here on a Tuesday instead of a Wednesday due to fears about the effects of Tropical Storm Guillermo which was supposed to reach the Hilo the next day. The waves were high and caused the cruise ship to cancel their scheduled port of call. There number of stalls was greatly reduced. On the bright side, parking... More

One of the best markets on the islands. Arrive early for best selection of fresh veggies. We like the plate lunches to go.

We always rent a vacation rental in Kapoho and make our way to this or one of the other Farmers markets to get wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables. What a delight - I love the papayas and mangos. And the flower arrangements are so colorful and artistic. If you must go to a restaurant just walk down the block to... More
