We took the free shuttle, but when we got there, there were only 4 venders including a used furniture section. Not worth going to.

The Kona International Market is comprised of an array of nice buildings -- but much of the space is currently unoccupied... there's only a few vendors remaining here. The Food Court offers take out plate lunches at reasonable prices... there's an Asian grocery too with...More

A lot of the spots are vacant which is unfortunate because it could be such a cool place. The wood shop is cool as well as the three other shops that were there. Wish there was more.

This was not very impressive nor very interesting with many places vacant and what was there not very interesting. Your time can be better spent elsewhere.

Feels a bit like a thrift shop. Many merchants were closed. A few basic Hawaiiana gifts, but several empty stalls. Too bad, could be a nice place to shop if it was modernized.

The day we went all of the areas weren't occupied, but we were able to find a few treasures. To include handmade jewelry, t-shirts and bags.

Stopped to see if they had anything interesting. Nope it wasn't worth it. Not many shops and most was junk. One shop had wood carvings that were cool but other than that nothing.
