This small market has all kinds of drinks and foods and ripe fruits and vegetables, and baked goods including gluten free bread, you will not see elsewhere. It's an experience, and reasonably priced. Imagine buying honey from passion fruit flowers, and almond milk flavored with dates and cane sugar. And popsicles of coconut milk, avocado and something sweet - delicious!... More

During every visit I stop by the Hilo Farmer's Market - either on a Wednesday or Saturday and spend a few hours there - I like looking at/buying all the fresh produce, juice, food, etc. - some of the craft items are the same "cheap souvenirs" you see everywhere, but some of the items are very unique and handmade by...

Seemed like a good market for locals to buy essentials. However, was not impressed with the breadth or scope of items offered by local artisans.

While I am not a shopper, I did enjoy checking out the various stalls selling local food, crafts, and artwork. We went on a Wednesday which is one of the days when more vendors are there.

Great for local plate lunch, Sushi, Spam Musubi, flowers, fruits, vegetables and souvenirs. Found Balsamic vinegar infused with local ingredients very gourmet . One of my favorite island treats is Spam Musubi, ono. Handcrafted one of a kind items by local people can be found at the market. Worth a visit.

If you live here, it is a useful place to shop for veggies and flowers. It no longer has the variety of independent gardeners it had even a few years ago. When I asked the various mostly Chinese women who were selling, they admitted that nothing was home grown and in most cases, not even locally sourced. We used to... More

had a fun afternoon with all the vendors selling many fruits and vegetables we would not get on the main land. Lots of food vendors selling the local foods that are amazing. Plus local vendors selling from jewelry to clothing…. neat place

Love going to Hilo Farmers Market on Wednesday's as the variety of choices for fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, nuts, jellies, honey, as well as gifts from Hawaii for the natives at home! Buy lunch there from otehr Asian food choices and take it and a drink over to Coconut Island and have a picnic, to finish off your shopping experiences.

Another great recommendation from our resort. If you enjoy eating local fruits, vegetables, coffee, desserts etc then give this a try. We bought locally grown coffee, papayas, cookies, snacks, lychee and more. We stayed a week and prepared smoothies for breakfast. This was a great place to get our fresh fruits and veggies. The market has a food side and... More

On certain days of the week the markets extends down 2 sides of the street. On these days the clothes and crafters are set up. There are some very talented and real thinkers here. We spent several hours looking/shopping. And that was just on one side.....the other was the fresh market, filled with fruit veggies, nuts, coffee, eggs...you name it... More
