Great local atmosphere, great local fruits and vegetables, great prices. Grocery stores just don't compare. And don't miss some of the local hawaiian specialties and baked goods. Support local growers and the local community and be rewarded with uncomperable quality and fresh-picked flavor.

We visited this market as we waited for our flight back to the mainland. The one thing that really caught me that you don't find at the flea market at Aloha Stadium is vendors selling prepared food. I was a little afraid of this at first but went ahead and tried a burrito from one of the vendors. It was... More

We stopped in Hilo on our way to Volcano National Park on a Wednesday morning. The market was in full swing. On one side it was all food and lots of it. Very fresh produce and fruits, honey and lots of other food, including ready to eat Thai options like Pad Thai and Fresh Spring Rolls w/dipping sauce. On the... More

If you want the freshest island produce and flowers, or need that perfect last minute aloha gift, Hilo farmers market is the place for you. The greatest way to support the island economy is to buy local and buy direct from the farmers and craftspeople.

I love Hawaii's farmer's market. The quality is so great! We purchased an avocado and it was huge! I wish we could get a real avocado here on the mainland. You wouldn't believe the size just by the picture.

We stopped by for a short visit. Wish we had more time. It was very interesting because there were so many different fruits and vegetables. The vendors were very I formative and friendly. Also, the flowers were georgeous. We made up a nice bouquet for our friends that we were staying with.

Farmers Mkt was average but the free shuttle driver, Danny Brodan was awesome. He offers a tour for $40.00 each (limited space so sign up as soon as you get to Farmers Mkt) when the farmers mkt closes. Best tour in all of Hawaii- way better than one that we paid over $100.00 for! He took us everywhere to see... More

We shopped at the market in Hilo three times. I got 6 aloha shirts and 4 ts. My closet is now filled with the spirit of Aloha. Lots of great fruit and food. You can barter and haggle for better price to streach your dollar. Go on Wednesday or Saturday to see the most venders. However what your looking for... More

We stopped by on a weekday with an overcast and light rain but there were still several fruit and veggie stalls selling local produce. Prices seemed even less expensive than the one in Kona. Free,parking on the street makes this a perfect thing to see and do. Not sure if these vendors are from local farms or are just reselling... More
