The Hilo Farmers Market has a different feel to it these days. It is still fun and enjoyable spending time at the market, but it doesn’t feel the same as before they had to make changes.

We liked the fresh fruits and small gifts sold at the Farmers Market in Hilo. It is not special enough for a long drive, but if you stay in Hilo make sure to stop by.

We were tipped off about going to the market on Wednesdays. Oh my goodness. Since we were able to cook in our rental, the farm fresh veggies stuffed our bags for several days of goodness. A great find in downtown Hilo.

Fun place to visit. Was looking forward to the coconuts but they ran out. Lots of other food and craft choices for souvenirs. Worth the trip from Kona.

It was pleasant to visit the local farmers, artists and merchants while I discovered their gifts. The community is historic and artsy. The market is open 7 days a week

The Hilo Farmers Market is covered with tarps and the indoor food court is inside a building. Thank you for your question and hope to see you there soon.
