My wife and I visited the market twice during our vacation time in Hilo. Prices reasonable. Coconuts I would not pay more than $5. Some vendors have prices for small, medium, and big coconuts. I did find a vendor at the market for $5 coconut. The water was very good and the coconut meat inside was nice and thick :)

Drove to the market and found parking down the street and around the corner. One side of the street has lots of produce and food items and the other is more clothes and knickknacks. Some of the vendors seemed keen to grab you so you would buy something.

We did end up meeting a friendly guy selling flavored lemonade and ice teas. He gave out lots of samples so we could try before deciding. We ended up buying a big souvenir cup of lilikoi lychee lemonade. He took a picture of us and put it on his Instagram stories. Nice guy. Next to him was a guy selling delicious lilikoi jam and also offering samples and I bought a jar of that too (he has an etsy shop so I can buy more later).

Good place to buy fruits if you wanted, but we were flying in a day so decided to hold off until the next island. One of the fruit sellers jumped up quickly when she saw me pausing to look but I was just browsing. Nothing else I wanted to buy here, most non food items looked possibly inauthentic.

Great prices for produce and some absolutely lovely vendors, but be extremely weary of jewelry vendors. Got ripped off by a vendor who stated their earrings are real pearls to quickly realize after I got home they were fully fake and a full waste of money.

When in Hilo, A must “do and see” is the Hilo’s Farmers Market. The best days to go are Wednesdays and Fridays. Here, on one side of the street, the local farmers offer fruits and vegetables, homemade sweets, honey and desserts. On the other side, local arts and craft are sold. Many vendors offer items that are locally made, but always ask if it’s made in Hawaii, if that is what you’re looking for. Flower leis and headbands, jewelry, clothing, artwork, etc. Well worth the time to stop and check it out.

Great produce and fruit variety. Many can be found elsewhere on the Island. But this is all in one place, AND this is the only place that I found MANGOSTEEN, so I give it 5 stars overall. Reasonable prices.

I travel frequently and have never ever had this problem.
ALL THE BATHROOMS WERE CLOSED IN REGULAR ESTABLISHMENTS
We were driving around the island of Hawaill.
I was refused access to two (2) gas stations even after purchasing $50 in gas and McDonalds bathrooms.
i voluntarily gave a donation of $5 to the Salvation Army because she let me use her bathroom as none were available.
HAWAII OPEN YOUR BATHROOMS. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO RETURN TO THE HOTEL
The most reliable places were the beaches But take your own toilet paper and you may want to wet wipe the seats. One was so full and nasty if I had not been desperate I would have passed.

The plane was full but Hawaii is not ready.

We paid premium prices for frozen food dinners. Fish is not fresh but fish sticks from Food Service. Breakfast of coffee eggs and bacon was $20 a plate. This was a very expensive trip for no bathroom and bad food
The best food is food trucks and grocery deli. Reservations for all restaurants
HAWAII IS NOT READY FOR TOURISTS WAIT FOR YOUR TRIP

Great [lace to figure put what's going on in town. We went a few times, but Wednesday was best as it is when the non-daily sellers come and there is lots more to see. Fresh betel nuts were great to see as well as many fresh tropical fruits like soursop, in addition to more common fruits/ Great variety in banana varieties as well as papaya varieties. We purchased a perfectly butchered pineapple to enjoy, totally ripe and artistically done. Fresh green coconut split open with a machete first for a drink and then to scoop out the soft meat. There were plenty of clothing, beauty, jewelry, and what have you vendors as well. Everyone stays safe with masks and tries to stay distanced.

The Hilo Farmers Market is always a mandatory stop when we are on the Big Island, we usually will visit on Saturdays and enjoy seeing the normal and exotic fruits and vegetables as well as all of the arts and crafts from local artists. Food trucks serve some good food as well...
