The Hilo Farmers Market is a must-see experience when you are on the Big Island. Over 200 local farmers and crafters sell their produce, crafts, gift items and tropical flowers in a festive outdoor atmosphere that recalls back to the old "plantation" days of early Hilo. Located at the corner of Mamo Street and Kamehameha Avenue in historic downtown Hilo, it's open all year round.
