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

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

The best days to attend are saturdays and wednesdays when there is a full contingent of vendors. Things are not always cheap, but the quality is superb. We got a bag of fresh papayas(5) for $2. Lots of organic produce as well. Also some really unusual things....managed to eat and enjoy the fruits and veggies we bought for the whole... More

We went there on a Wednesday. That and Saturday are the best days to go with the most vendors available. It's a great place to pick up produce and local made foods/coffee. You're buying directly from the producer without including the middleman like Walmart or the local grocery store. We enjoyed seeing what was around and ended up coming home... More

This is a great place to buy your produce, snacks and gifts. Open every day of the week, but the big market days are Wednesday and Saturday.

Probably due to this being between Christmas and New Year's the market was sparsely populated. However there were ample choices of fresh and local fruits and vegetables available.this is a fine place to stop for a tasty local healthy treats or to stock up on veggies if you happen to be in or passing through the town of Hilo.

We visited on a Sunday right after Christmas. There were maybe a dozen stalls populated and probably twice as many empty stalls. Most had ok produce some had very nice flowers but I've been to much more impressive markets on the island.

We visited the Hilo Farmers Market on a Saturday in early December and were disappointed. There were a few stalls with beautiful flowers at great prices and also a few "so so" produce stalls. Unfortunately, most of the stalls sold cheap touristy stuff. In other words, the Market is not what its cracked up to be. We did have an... More

Go on a Wednesday or Saturday when all the vendors are there. Other days there are only about 30 vendors.
