Each farmers market has a different feel and offer different items. This is the best one for fresh flowers. I also picked up some wonderful oils there. It doesn’t take long to get around. Many prepared foods there as well as produce.

Best on Wednesday and Sunday when all vendors are present. Vendors for art, t-shirts, jewelry, common minerals/rocks, and of course fresh produce. Kids had a great time. Mix this with shopping on the two main streets for a great day out.

This is a nice, small town market with tons of fresh produce, flowers, art, clothing, jewelry, fresh food and drinks and live musicians. It is located in the heart of the downtown, so it's convenient to many other shops and restaurants.

Don't let anything stop you from making your way here on a Saturday when it is open. Amazing food, produce, homemade products, people and community! Live Ukulele music and many local artisans. A special place and worth your time!

The Hilo Farmers Market is covered with tarps and the indoor food court is inside a building. Thank you for your question and hope to see you there soon.
