Lots of necklaces and things to take back to friends, at a fraction of the cost in the stores. Plus the artists are the ones selling it. One even helped me pick out ripe mangos from a fruit stand.

What a delightful place! Beautiful, inexpensive fruits & vegetables; artisans; vendors selling all kinds of wares. There are folks selling local macadamia nuts and coffee beans. One gentleman sold me some of the best green papaya salad I have ever eaten. Visiting the market was a highlight of Hilo.

A crowded, busy market with dozens of stalls offering local produce, food, crafts and souvenirs. There is a nice mix of locals and visitors and vendors are friendly and usually happy to answer questions. Amidst the usual items you expect to find are some wonderful treasures by local artists. Prices are good and food and produce is fresh. Parking by... More

Tons of booths to browse through. You're sure to find something to purchase! We bought a few items. Stop by Wao Kele Honey and talk to Nancy. She was great! She shipped a box of delicious honey back to the mainland for us and her prices were terrific. Had a chair massage from Blanch. She was a riot, full of... More

We made a special trip from Kona to see the "Market". The gals were all excited about its great reviews all the things that were there to buy. We went there on a Wednesday when it was supposed to be bigger and better, but it was a real disappointment. The produce didn't look all that fresh and the trinkets were... More

This was a small farmers market with food on one side of the street and vendors selling merchandise on the other. A lot of the merchandise vendors were selling cheap trinkets. There were a few vendors selling their own art and creations.

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
