I love fruit. It's my favorite. During the first months of summer, you can find cheap lychee and papaya. There are many stalls of vendors selling mostly produce. There are some vendors selling prepared foods and honey or turmeric products. Definitely a must if you're...More

Better on Wednesdays and Saturdays as they have close to 200 vendors and only about 25 on the other days but still worth going.

Since we don't have kitchen facilities on this island and can't cook, we ignored the food stalls. We bought a beautiful ink sketch print from one artist and some lovely flower greeting cards from another. Wide variety of crafts and other homemade items for sale.

Hilo isn't my favorite place, but we had some time to kill before our helicopter trip over the volcano, so we wandered through the market. Decent handicrafts, friendly people.
