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.

Grocery prices have skyrocketed on the big island since senator inouye died. People are very tight even when shopping at this bustling local market.

If you’re here on a Wednesday, you’ll find stalls on both sides of the street with sellers of fresh fruit and veggies, Hawaiian fast food (like poke), art, gifts, etc.

Love buying food from the farmers. The prices are generally reasonable and the choices are varied. It's fun to see the diverse foods available.

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.

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.
