We arrived shortly after 6AM to find the bulk of the vendors still setting up so had to kill about 40-60min. It really didn't get going in earnest until around 7AM. Once it did, we were able to find plenty of fresh produce as well as gifts for the family, so we still had a good time.

This was a large and excellent farmers market. The variety of fresh produce was really good, and everything was of high quality. The prices were great as well---certainly better that what we saw at Safeway. The craft section of this market was also quite nice, much better than the touristy stuff at the Kailua-Kona market. Since the Hilo market is... More

We stayed in accommodations less than a block away and we went every day for fresh fruits and veggies. Ripe papayas - 8 for $1........ The main market is Wednesdays and Saturdays, when other vendors are there selling local arts and crafts. We bought some hand-made bags and jewelry at extremely reasonable prices.

Great place to go for fresh fruits and vegetables, yes organic as well! I absolutely LOVE lychee and the had stalls after stalls with loads of fresh lychee for a great price. In addition to food they had other varieties of stalls: flowers, cooked foods, baked goods, lei stands, etc.

There are many Farmer's markets on the Big Island that we frequent for fresh foods. This is no different than the others. Long beans, japanese eggplant, papayas, mangos, limes etc. Great floral arrangements.

Came here on a Wed and there were so many vendors and so much to buy!! All the produce is fresh and the people really do have true aloha spirit!! So nice to talk to. I bought some chili sauce from this one vendor. I wish I had gotten his name or business card, but he was so sweet. I... More

My husband and I wandered around the farmers market while exploring Downtown Hilo. I was kind of disappointed in the number of vendors. We only spent about 15 minutes walking around it.

I absolutely love buying fresh produce, locally. This market has all variety of Hawaiian fruits and vegetables. I was excited for the fidderlings I hadn't had since moving from Vermont. Both my son and I enjoyed walking through the many vendors offerings. I like to spread my money around to as many as I can. There is redundancy in products... More

Clothes, gluten-free goodies, Thai food, trinkets, etc. Original art work. Lots to look at and enjoy. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Better than the Farmer's market in Kona but I believe it is only two days a week (Saturday and Wednesday, I think) - we were there on a Saturday.
