Hilo Farmers Market, Hilo

Support local growers at Hilo Farmers Market, which is open daily. The market's 200 vendors sell everything from produce to handicrafts, but the market is also a hub of culture with live music and artists selling their wares. On certain days, locals are invited to rent a booth at a discount and sell their used books, second-hand clothing, and antiques. The market is its own community, and it provides a good way for visitors to get to know the locals.

  • Grief, was this a busy place! Even in the late afternoon, with many vendors packing up, there was a lot of activity. There were so many different items! From jellies and jams, to breads, to fresh frui...  more »

  • There are a lot of fruit stands to get your tropical fruit fix - and the prices are very reasonable compared to the grocery store. I love trying different fruits and seeing if I like them or not. Before buying, take a stroll through the market to check prices and see which produce looks the best. Hint: if you go at the end of the day, you might get some better deals since they don't want to pack all the extra fruits and veggies up!
  • This is a really great way to support the local economy and the hard working farmers while enjoying great quality produce and so many local favorites. Whether you want a yummy local meal or treat or local attire, jewelry, gift items, home decor, footwear, exotic flowers 💐 and fruit, something for your hair, specialty gifts for friends and family, or interesting and informative "talk story" with friendly and knowledgeable folks who are happy to share and take the time to chat with u, this is definitely something u don't want to miss. Wednesdays and Saturdays are the best days because there are more vendors and great selection. Look for the handcrafted items that make super great mementos and are sold here at truly great prices. Enjoy.
  • Some level of cheesy Hawaiian branded items made elsewhere. But the majority of items and food is locally sourced or made. If you want stuff that isn't from ABC or one of the big box stores then grab something here. Try some of the fresh fruit and juices or you'll really be missing out before leaving the island. Pro tip: make sure you see the juices being made, some vendors use a powdered mix for "fresh fruit" juices.
  • Nice selection of produce and crafts. Shop around before you buy though. Some things that are nearly identical vary in price. The handmade glass tiles are beautiful and there is something for everyone.
  • Friendly and helpful vendors. It was raining when we went. Tried some new fruit and purchased some nice gifts for friends and family. They had beautiful plants and flowers for purchase as well.
