Went by during the week and there were many booths with produce and a few booths with gift items for sale. Easy parking witjout the crowds. We also visited on the weekend.

The market had a pretty decent selection of local wares, handmade jewelry and t-shirts/tank tops, lots of fruit and veg. Situated under large tents near the centre of downtown Hilo. Vendors were kind. It didn't have a lot of pizzazz, but if you are looking for local veg, it's the place to go.

Maybe I'm spoiled after years of shopping the Aloha stadium flea market, but this one just didn't impress me. The vendors were nice and I did find a few things, but the layout is weird and constricted and the selection of vendors is limited. If you need to kill an hour in Hilo, it's fine but I wouldn't go out... More

As an actual destination Hilo leaves something to be desired as far as a place to stay. It does however have a very good farmers market that runs every Wednesday and Saturday. Information suggests that there are 200 vendors here on those days. It did not really feel that there were that many. Do not expect a sprawling large farmers... More

Great little place, so much to see and but. There are so many fruits and vegetables also home made things like quilts and things. Enjoyed strolling through the market. Bought a few fruits that we haven't seen in a long time. Just great!

If you're in Hilo, this is a good place to get fresh fruits and veggies and local items. If not, don't drive across the island for it - just go to the Kona farmer's market as it's most of the same stuff. Tons of typical touristy stuff - t-shirts, jewelry etc. No place to sit and limited shade on a... More

We went through the market on our cruise stop in Hilo. Very disappointed in the town and the shopping, as in there is not much there at all. The market is where we bought our souvenirs. I would rather pay locals for handmade goods then buy commercially. They had fresh fruit and vegetables that were absolutely gorgeous. We had pineapple... More

We stopped at the market on a Wednesday afternoon. On one side is fresh vegetables and food. Across the street were quite a few vendors selling jewelry bowls clothing etc.

It is quite a scene on Wed. and Saturdays. Lots of vendors selling their wares to lots of people strolling through. Nice fruits and veges that tend to be the same price but there are variations in quality and price. Lots of free samples. Across the street are the 'crafts'. They range in price and quality. It is a nice... More
