We were told to check this out. What a find. Over 200 booths, plan on spending a few hours. Most vendors take cards but some only take cash. We bought gifts for friends, ourselves, etc. My wife found some really nice Larimar pieces of jewelry here, shirts, candles, local photos and photos on metal(the latest thing). She was very happy....

Yes there were the usual "made in China" things.....however we also found some wonderful handmade items. earrings, paintings, handcarved turtles, and my favorite find was a wonderful little plate with a turtle on it...and meeting the artists was extra special. This is a definate... More

I totally enjoyed my time at the Swap Meet. The parking was great and the 50 cent admission very reasonable. There were a lot of homemade products for sale. I loved the soaps, macaroons, Hawaiian fabric pillowcases, jewelry, tea and banana bread! There were some very talented people displaying their work, and it was fun to talk to the vendors.... More

There was a decent selection of local produce and a place to buy local coffee but otherwise, the "Hawaiian" crafts seemed to be made in China for the most part. Nothing special here.

Every Saturday 50 cents to enter worth every penny. Get there early at 7 am (7am to 1 pm), because it does get hot there and the parking is better. Lots of local product at a great price you will not find any where else on the island. From local agricultural to local artists. With the usual mayhem that accompanies... More

Definitely not as big as the Aloha Swap Meet in Honolulu, but there were some great local wares. We bought jewellery, bags, clothing and food. A definite recommendation for a Saturday morning, but be early as it gets hot out in the sun.

We heard about this from a vendor at a smaller market. There is a lot of unique stuff to look at and the prices are better than in the touristy areas.

If you need to buy cheapie type souvenirs for friends, co-workers and kids...this is the place. There are a variety of knick knacks here. From key chains and magnets, to t-shirts and kids clothes, to hand made wooden crafts and art work. There are also plenty of food and drinks available.

This is the best swap meet I've been to. Great quality vendors! Big variety. Cheap souvenirs! It's only 50 cents to get in...and free parking. You can get souvenirs, jewelry, fresh veg/fruit, massages, art work....you name it. We had a delicious sugar free organic Popsicle.....highly recommend. My favorite was the tiki goddess jewelry.....beautiful necklaces for $25-$45 .....great deal!
