  • When in Kona this is the best shopping for fresh fruits and crafts. 30+booths w/free parking and LOCAL jewelry, paintings, food sold by locals! So much better than the dozens of over priced tshirt sho...  more »
  • It was the morning we were flying home so we had time and then we spotted the Kona farmers market. It looked like fun for all of us before lunch. We gave the kids (three under age 11) some money to sp...  more »
  • I think it is kind of ratty and tacky. Depending upon what fruit tent you look at the prices can be different depending upon who is in the 'prime' spots. I can see if a cruise ship was in port the pla...  more »

  • Still my favorite farmers market in the Kona area even though more and more of it is just items people import from catalogs. You will find some local art here as well as local fruits and flowers. A lot of the fruit is now straight from Costco and presented as local so be careful about what you are after. Still though, if it looks good and smells good who cares if it came from Costco. Be sure to negotiate everything since the prices are often high. They should move quickly either lowering the price or more often adding quantity for the same price. This is a primary income stream for many locals. Massive avocados for $2-$3 each. Single one makes a bucket of guacamole at your condo. Great bouquets of local flowers for $10-$15.
  • This was one of the low key yet very pleasant moments of our trip. I especially enjoyed speaking with the locals, some produce sellers who brought the food over from the Hilo side. We had fun shopping and got "treasures" at very reasonable prices: two quite different strings of decorative shells, some men's sandals, a colorful small bag that my wife uses to take her lunches to work. The shop selling local flora yielded some exquisitely colorful photos!
  • Great local produce and Hawaii inspired arts/crafts/souvenirs selection. Parking is limited but not impossible. Got a good deal for ripe bananas - 10 dollars a box. Freshly cut pineapple was delicious! Papaya was super sweet! Compare to similar markets on other islands this one definitely stands out. Tons of fruit!
  • Nice little farmers market. Fruits, veggies, and knick knacks galore. Don't buy from the first vendor you see. Another vender a few booths down may have the same thing for less. Easy parking, but not everyone takes credit card. For someone like myself that never carries cash....this is a pain. Still worth visiting though!
  • Small farmers market in a parking lot along Ali'i Drive. Great place to buy fruit and gifts to take home. Lots of handmade stuff from around the island.

Where to stay in Kailua-Kona

If you wish to indulge yourself while on the Kona coastline of the "Big Island," book your stay at one of Kailua-Kona's fully furnished beachside villas, offering spa services, free Wi-Fi, and secure parking. You can also try one of the coastline's luxury resorts, featuring tennis courts, fitness centers, and on-site activities like hula lessons and diving classes.
