Hilo Farmer's Market Jun 29, 2011
I agree with "sirenn9" regarding the Market being a cool place to visit in Hilo. One thing you'll notice on your first visit to Hawaii is how expensive food is. Shopping at the Market is one way to save money on your fresh produce over store prices.

This is one of the coolest things to do if you live in Hilo, or are visiting. This is one of the best places to get fresh, local fruit and vegetables (some of them are very exotic and I doubt you will see them anywhere else) and other food including seafood prepared local-style, portuguese baked goods, all sorts of tropical flowers, as well as local arts and crafts, hand-made clothing and jewelry.

This event happens on Wednesdays and Saturdays all day long, although I think it's better to go earlier, ideally between 10am to 1 pm, because that is when the market is at its peak in the sense that that is when all of the vendors are there. Some of them do not stay there all day, they leave as soon as the crowd starts to die down which is usually around 1 or 2 in the afternooon.

The farmers market is located in Hilo's hostoric downtown, near bayfront, and area that was practically destroyed in the 60's after a huge tsunami tore through Hilo. The area has been somewhat remodeled (it still looks pretty run-down, though) and there are a lot of surrounding businesses that are pretty cool to check out also. There are also some great places to get a cup of coffee, or get a bite to eat.

Their website is hilofarmersmarket.com, if you want to check it out. They even have coupons now!
