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

The farmers market is awesome! There are tons of varieties of fresh fruit from the island as well as homemade food and unique jewelry and accesories. It's always good to support local businesses and people too.

As well as mainland USA fruits, Hilo Market sells a great variety of tropical fruits as well! My favorites are durian, mangosteen, and rambutan. Try to enjoy these on the island as you can before you head home!

Vendors are all under one huge tent; there's no ventilation, be ready to be squished and it feels like a sauna. Lot of fruits, veggies and flowers. You can get a deal here.

The Hilo Farmers Market was easy to find. We ended up parking a few blocks away and walking in because there is no parking lot next to the farmers market. There was a wide selection of produce and unique crafts. Many of the craft items were very reasonably priced. It is a great place to purchase some unique souvenirs.

I wish we would have found this market before purchasing most of our souvenirs, they had just about everything and great prices. One side of the road was fruits, veggies and home made goodies and the other side of the road was the souvenirs and hot food kiosks. Parking was tough, we had to walk about 5 blocks but worth...

Admittedly, I'm a farmers market snob. Maybe it's because I grew up going to Pike Place Market in Seattle and have shopped other glorious markets in California and Europe. So if my snobbiness offends, I apologize. I found this market shabby. If I lived in Hilo, I suppose I would buy fresh produce here. The flowers are nice, of course.... More

Visited on the first Saturday, January 10, 2015, of our trip. A vendor let my husband and myself taste a couple of fruits that we had never seen before. Also found some wonderful quiche. Plenty of fruits, vegetables and people! Fruits and vegetables on one block corner and on the other side of the road were the clothing and souvenirs.... More

My brother and I vacationing in Kona decided to go to the Hilo Farmers Market on a Saturday morning. He and his wife are her every year for a month and brag about the great market. Well... it is great. There are tons of fruits and veggies. We are from the Midwest and there are fruits I have only seen... More
