  • More Info: Open Wednesdays and Saturdays

Located in Downtown Hilo, the festive Hilo’s Farmers' Market is known as one of the best open markets in Hawaii. You can never tell what you’ll find at this colourful market, but it’s safe to say you’ll probably spot things you’ve never seen before.

The Hilo Farmers' Market lures both locals and visitors with Hilo’s freshest finds at affordable prices. You’ll find a colourful selection of locally grown exotic fruit, vegetables, herbs, island jams and jellies, macadamia nuts and delectable baked goods. Also note that 95 percent of Hawaiian papayas are grown on the east side of Hawaii Island, so look for these fresh fruits when they’re in season. Strawberry papayas, a local delicacy, look like regular papayas, but their beautiful pinkish-orange flesh is sweeter and juicier.

Food is only part of the fun at the Hilo Farmers' Market. Big buckets of orchids and anthuriums line the stalls. Wind chimes, etched glass and koa wood treasures fill the craft section. You can even find local t-shirts, tropical fashions and handmade jewellery. And don’t forget to buy a lei for that someone special. Get there early to shop for the best choices from the market’s more than 200 vendors. The full-fledged market is open year round every Wednesday and Saturday, but some vendors are there almost every day.
