Papayas 5 for 2.00. Apple bananas, longan, rambutan, egg fruit, all sorts of fun things to try. Bring a cooler. The crafts fair was also good-there are some people there making things by hand. There are a couple Thai food trucks and a guy grilling Hawaiian style meats. The only drawback is the bathrooms available are at the bus depot... More

My husband and I visited Hilo Farmer's market and had a wonderful time looking through the produce and actually not spending a whole lot of money for what we got. The market downtown opens every Wednesday and Saturday. There were clothing items, fresh produce, jewelry, etc. The location in downtown Hilo was perfect, in walking distance to local shops and...

Huge Farmers Market and crafts. Bought our fresh fruits and vegetables each Wednesday and Saturday during our 6 week stay. Very reasonable prices. Coffee, home baked goods, local honey, vegan desserts and treats. Fresh juices, macadamia nuts... take your time and enjoy stopping and speaking with the vendors. They were most helpful in explaining how to cook certain vegetables we... More

Visited Hilo many times and the market is always the highlight. Prices haven't changed much in 10 years, mostly because produce is locally grown. Vendors are always friendly and price bargaining unnecessary . On wed and sat someone always has prepared items such as bento and musabi and fresh fruit drinks. We would live across from the market if we... More

We got a bunch of fresh fruit and veggies for under $20. Good tasting. ;) it wasn't completely full. The material vendors had some neat things. Privately made jewelry and some other things, but then some things you could get at any other vendor in town.

One of our travelling companions had read that this was one of the best farmer's markets in the States. Hmmmm - I don't think so. The one in Monterrey CA blows it away as do many others that I have travelled to. There was nothing special to it and it was hotter/muggier than heck when we went. The food choices... More

This is a great market for buying authentic quality souvenirs from local Hawaiians. The store owners were friendly and great to chat to. Prices here are half what you pay in Waikiki and better quality too. Also a great place to pick up bunches of fruit and other food items if you're on a budget. Located at the end of... More

It is a nice market just across the beach from in Hilo. However there is special or unique about this market. Sure they have fruits, vegetables and groceries etc. like any other farmers market. If you are a tourist, then you are probably looking for locally made items and you won't find much. Most items are made in China.

There are two parts of this farmers market. The food section which is filled with lots of unique things that you wouldn't see back on the US continent. If they have Mochi - try it, it's delicious. And the lemonade stand with all the unique lemonade has some wonderful flavors. The other section of the market is crafters and I... More
