Fun to go to grab a few fresh things for a salad or fresh fruits. Some breads and fresh flowers also. Not as big as other markets but that's also the charm of this one you can get in and out quick.

This is a great social gathering on Sundays. I met up with a few friends and had a bite to eat. There were lovely plants and fruits. If I was not visiting, I could see myself buying plants here. A great overall experience I would recommend for a Sunday.

This was one of the many farmers markets I visited while vacationing on the Big Island.. This market was just ok.. Cost $1.00 to park and had an okay selection.. My husband said the Indian food he bought was the best he had ever had.. I personally liked the Hilo farmers market on Wednesday better..

Fresh juices, bone carved earrings, and clothes from Nepal! A shuttle will take you so there is no need to rent a car.

This is a clean, well organized fairly large "Farmers Market" although there was more of everything else than there was of "farm". But the fruits and vegetables all looked fresh and priced much better than at Safeway/KTA. A lot of the trinkets are from outside of Hawaii ~ SE Asia (Thailand, Indonesia). There are of course the locals who make... More

Maku'u Farmers Market has been operating for over 12 years now. This market provides a venue for local merchants and entrepreneurs the opportunity to make some money for their families. The revenue from the market proceeds helps with the weekly market operations. Any small business owner will know the overhead cost to legitimately running a small business can be overwhelming....

What a fun market! We only had time to stop in passing, but I would love to have spent half a day there sampling the many vendors and gathering supplies for a wonderful homemade dinner. In addition to the bounty of produce and varied food vendors, you'll also find several of the same souvenir vendors from the famous Hilo Market.
