Love buying food from the farmers. The prices are generally reasonable and the choices are varied. It's fun to see the diverse foods available.

We went there while exploring Hilo a little bit in more detail. There was food and fruits and beverages, but almost 50% were T-shirts (some "made in china") and it was hard to find some Hawaiin stuff. To be honest we were a bit dissapointed.

Small market but the growers bring in beautiful fruit, vegetables and flowers. I was especially impressed with fresh ginger and the flowers. Take your own bag.

Lots of fruit, mangoes, dragonfruit, papaya, lychees ... yum, yum, yum. Cut dragonfruit in half and freeze overnight. Ice cream like, but it's fruit. Also bought a flower arrangement for $5 and it lasted a week and a half!

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.
