Nice market

Hilo isn't my favorite place, but we had some time to kill before our helicopter trip over the volcano, so we wandered through the market. Decent handicrafts, friendly people.

Visiting the markets was one of the highlights of our time in Hilo. Fresh, tasty food with a good range for vegetarians. Tried a few different pre-prepared vegetarian dishes for lunch and all were filled with fresh and tasty vegetables. Made a good change after heavier fried diner style foods!

As farmers markets go I would call this one just the high side of average. Good number of produce vendors, although lots of redundancy in crops...probably more a product of time of year/harvest than anything. Definitely more craft/touristy vendors than produce. Only downside was no great takeaway food vendors or food trucks that we found...were hoping to grab a bite... More

Prepared hawaiian papaya salad, noodles, poi, chicken or beef dishes, raw honey, lychess, Logans, strawberry papayas, herbs, tomatoes, onions, fresh ginger, fresh turmerics, and many other fruits and vegetables. There are also hawaiian desserts. You pass the street and there are artists selling... More

This market is crowded for a reason! You can find anything here from breads and other baked goods to vegetables, whole pineapples, and Bananas. We are planning to use this as a restaurant for a lunch while we are here!

Hilo has a huge, wonderful farmers' market right downtown. It covers a large area and one can buy just about anything - it's like a real, old-world style market rather than the usual, more limited farmers' markets one usually finds in, say California - which tend to be a little "fancier," limited mostly to produce and other food rather than...
