On Wednesday and Saturdays, it is advertised that the market has 200+ vendors that come out; however, it didn't seem like that many. We went on a Saturday and arrived around 8 AM, so parking was not an issue. We spent about 2 hours to go through the whole market. The market had a large variety of goods ranging from... More

Hilo Farmers Market, you can find a very good variety of offerings, The up side... You can take all your tourist friends there and might get great deals.. Then again, only if they have a keen eye...Unfortunately many of the venders bring loads of things from Philippines, Taiwan, China....so you are not exactly getting made in Hawaii souveniers. Yes, there... More

As a local it was always a "to do" list for my fresh produce and fun shopping...the freshest of local in season produce and fun to shop for gifts and neat things for myself. Tourists should always add to their MUST do list as they'll walk away with homemade local jewelry and gifts for everyone including themselves. Can't beat it.

We liked Salti Gear Lemonade...get the reusable cup (very cool Mason jar cup) and get $3.00 refills each time you return. So many vendors were willing to give samples or tell you about their products.

We visited several farmer's markets on the Island during our 12 day stay on the Big Island--visiting Hilo's version last. And wish we had skipped all the others and just done this one, saving all our souvenir $ for it. It's 3 times larger than Kona's, and both prices and variety of offerings are similarly better. Huge produce offerings--cheap, tasty... More

I went to check out the Hilo Farmers Market on a Saturday morning. There were so many great vendors and many local products, fresh produce, Hawaiian floral arrangements and souvenir vendors. It's a great one-stop shop if you're just passing through as it's right in the middle of Hilo and across from the beautiful Hilo Bay. It does get a... More

I love this market. Aside from the wide variety of vegetables sold there, there were also various kinds of honey and nuts. I especially loved the Lehua honey I got there and so did my friends with whom I shared it with when I got home.

This market is filled with extraordinary homemade Hawaiian crafts and textiles. Also, there is a variety of fresh produce. I was able to purchase some beautiful handmade earrings and necklaces for friends. The service was friendly and gracious! You're guaranteed to enjoy your time at the marketplace.

Fresh floral arrangements that were so pretty! We bought locally grown papayas, tomatoes, lycheese, bananas, etc. We luckily went during the week when it wasn't crowded. The people were very nice. While around this area, stop into one of the many art galleries. I did, and bought some nice local artists paintings of the area.
