I always enjoy a stroll through the farmers market. Always something I don't need but want it anyway. All the workers are very friendly and willing to help.
The only place on the island I can find spinner rings in my size.
Great little farmers market just at the end of the main shops in Hilo. Excellent prices, great produce and some lovely street food stands nearby. Was a lovely hour or so break from walking and other activities. Well worth going along if in Hilo as...More
It is very small...very small. They have the same goods you can find anywhere else. They do have one section of fresh produce, but for us visiting wasnt something we were looking for. They dont have any kind of snacks or local fare you can...More
It was interesting walking through the market. On Saturday, both sides of the market are full of vendors. The main market is for local produce, fresh fruits and vegetables, and tropical flowers from the local farmers. It was amazing to see all the different types...More
We went there while exploring Hilo a little bit in more detail. There was food and fruits and beverages, but almost 50% were T-shirts (some "made in china") and it was hard to find some Hawaiin stuff. To be honest we were a bit dissapointed.
You can buy all kinds of local fruit and veggies. I discovered quite a few fruits that I have never seen before.they have ready food too. Packaged to grab and eat at the park on the other side of the street..right on the ocean. On...More
This was full of local made items and grown foods. I knew I was not going on a “big” market day but I was a lil let down to see how small it was on a Tuesday. I enjoyed walking through and purchased several things....More

Yes it is open on Sunday. We went to the Hilo Market on a Saturday and it was ok. But on Sunday we went to the Maku'u Farmers Market near Pahoa and it was much better than Hilo. There were more vendors and prices were lower to. It is about 30 minutes east of Hilo. We actually went there by accident and didn't plan on it as we were heading to the Tide Pools to go snorkeling. (worth it) The selection of merchandise was so much better and it wasn't nearly as congested at Hilo and much much cleaner and better organized. Hilo's Market smelled funny, and dirty. They also had things there that Hilo didn't have like fresh fish caught that am. So if you don't mind traveling 30 minutes from Hilo I would so go there rather than to Hilo hands down. On a side note they have a cove called the champagne pond 5 miles away that is heated geothermal from volcano and very cool to swim in and snorkel lots of fish and of course as I mentioned before the tide pools right down the road from champagne pond (5 min) Hope this helps
