Shopping the farmers market on the Big Island of Hawaii

See also

It's fun to shop farmers markets on the Big island of Hawaii. There are so many markets to choose from throughout the island, every day of the week. Tourists and locals alike, love to support Big island growers, food products, crafters and island made products from the Big Island. It's wonderful exploring the various markets and trying something new or different that you haven't tried before. Part of the fun is to walk around the market to check out the variety of tropical flowers, taste exotic jams, cheeses or spreads and even try out some cool Hawaii made clothing.

Almost every community on the Big island has a farmers market happening once a week and some of the larger markets including the Hilo Farmers market has a daily market. But the Hilo markets biggest days are typically Wednesdays and Saturdays.

When you do shop these markets, do look for products or food items that are made from Hawaii. It's nice to purchase fresh product grown from the island so you know that you are supporting local growers and businesses who sell at these markets for their livelihood.

Many of the local farmers markets on the Big island are now federally approved to accept food stamps and utilize EBT cards for purchasing. Ask each particular vendor if they accept EBT cards for any of your purchases.
