|About these ratings|
More than 100 vendors congregate on a weekly basis to hawk produce, seafood, crafts, clothing and more in downtown Hilo. And travelers and guide books agree there's no better place on the Big Island to shop. Hilo Farmer's Market sells some of everything, from the run-of-the-mill (like pineapples and bananas) to off-the-beaten track items (like jaboticaba fruit or bongo drums), but you'll have to arrive early and you can't be afraid to bargain.
Hilo Farmer's Market is located on the corner of Mamo Street and Kamehameha Avenue. It's open every day, but you'll find that most vendors only show up on Wednesdays and Saturdays "from dawn 'til it's gone." The market's official website offers more details.
