Don't miss the Farmer's Market in Hilo! Many handmade crafts, paintings, photographs for sale under the tents; cross the side street to find an impressive
selection of fresh fruits, veggies, coffee, honey, etc. Lots of little shops and good lunches within easy walking distance.

Went on a Wednesday when the “big“ market day was supposed to take place. They had a lot of fruits and there was a guy with honey. The mangoes were not local, so they do fruits that are imported there. There was another section with some touristy items such as Hawaiian shirts and necklaces. Nothing local, homemade coffee or macadamia nuts or anything that we were looking for. I will definitely not be back.

Thanks for sharing your experience! During the slower season, some vendors provide imported produce to offer a better selection. As we come to the Spring, there will be a much more extensive selection of produce and local goods. We're sorry you didn't find what you were looking for during your visit and we wish you all the best.

Easy to find in downtown Hilo, with a public parking lot across the street. One section is devoted to local growers and their produce, and you will not find fresher pineapple, mangoes, papaya, and guava anywhere else in the US. Literally. On Big Market days (Wednesdays and Saturdays) there is a second marketplace adjacent to the farmer's market filled with local craftspeople. Lots of artwork, jewelry, and clothing. A fun place to spend a morning.

Pretty basic. I assumed this would be a pretty big farmers market but was actually quite small. Maybe the size of a city lot. Food looks fresh. Good if your looking for fresh food

Aloha! We're glad you visited our market and we are sorry you found it underwhelming. Wednesdays & Saturdays are our Big Market days which have more vendors, and the season does have something to do with it. We hope you come by in the spring & summer, we're confident you'll have a different experience!

This was a pretty typical market. There are numerous jewelery booths, photography, and t shirts. Across the street were produce stands. It is okay to visit if you are on the Hilo side but I wouldn't drive from Kona just for this.

Thanks for making the trip to visit our market! We are sorry you didn't find it worth the drive but encourage you to visit on either a Wed or Sat, those are our Big Market Days! You'll also find more vendors during the spring and summer months. Mahalo for taking the time to share your experience!

We actually went twice (Wed/Sat). And as good as it was Wednesday, it was even better Saturday! So much produce. We picked up some wonderful rubs and BBQ sauce from Bri’s Big Island BBQ on Wednesday so suggested it to our friends (who flew from Oahu to visit with us while we were here on vacation). They took some back with them, too.

There's a lot of fresh fruit that you can't get on the mainland (or at least the quality isn't good) and I'd recommend bringing/buying a knife or something to cut it with. We had the coconut juice and I bought a starfruit. I'd also recommend the butter mochi, which they had at a couple of stands.
