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.
So if you’re on the east side of the island, definitely stop at the farmers market on Wednesday’s. Vendors are very nice and tried lots of new fruits including rambutan and star fruit. Also had coconut water, coconut milk, pineapple and papaya. Lots of baked...More
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!

Yes it is open on Sunday. We went to the Hilo Market on a Saturday and it was ok. But on Sunday we went to the Maku'u Farmers Market near Pahoa and it was much better than Hilo. There were more vendors and prices were lower to. It is about 30 minutes east of Hilo. We actually went there by accident and didn't plan on it as we were heading to the Tide Pools to go snorkeling. (worth it) The selection of merchandise was so much better and it wasn't nearly as congested at Hilo and much much cleaner and better organized. Hilo's Market smelled funny, and dirty. They also had things there that Hilo didn't have like fresh fish caught that am. So if you don't mind traveling 30 minutes from Hilo I would so go there rather than to Hilo hands down. On a side note they have a cove called the champagne pond 5 miles away that is heated geothermal from volcano and very cool to swim in and snorkel lots of fish and of course as I mentioned before the tide pools right down the road from champagne pond (5 min) Hope this helps
