Must see!

This is a must do while in Hilo. The vendors are very friendly and so diverse. Free parking all around the market and plenty to see and do.

This is a quirky market. The amount of organics is crazy! Honey to juice you can find it here as well as some pretty tasty greens. The people selling are a bit odd at times, like they have come here to hide from the world, but that is part of the fun. One side is eatables and the other is... More

We went on A Friday, and most of the vendors were selling fresh fruit and vegetables. There were a few selling other items like jewelry, musical instruments and various other trinkets. The folks were all friendly, and the produce smelt amazing. I would recommend going, but think the weekends may be better days.

My family and I spent about 1.5 hours here and paid $2 to park closer (recommended). We went during lunch time. It was a great place to buy a sampling of food, fresh produce, drinks and dessert and then split the "spoils" with other family members. This was a delicious and inexpensive option. It's also a wonderful place to buy... More

It wasn't the largest farmers market I've been to, but it had a great selection of items. Super fresh pineapples, mangos, etc. and the prices were very reasonable. It was a good way to spend an afternoon.

We visited this market twice on our trip. Once was on Sunday and there were only a few vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. We were able to buy local produce at great prices. The second visit was on Wednesday when the market was hopping! Not only were there local farmers and their goods, but a large assortment of... More

Love all the fruits there. Great filipino desserts. You get a liitle feel.of.island food. A little bit of swap meet type shopping. Great place to buy papaya, fresh mango and pineapple.

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.
