As soon as we got off the plane in Hilo, we headed straight to the Hilo Farmer’s Market, a must-stop destination on your next visit to the east side of the Big Island.
Though the market is open daily — on the corner of Mamo Street and Kamehameha Avenue in downtown Hilo — the days to go are Wednesdays and Saturdays, when more than 200 vendors on three corners show up, selling everything from Big Island coffee, locally grown produce, honey, crafts, jams, prepared foods and tropical flowers.
Here’s a peek inside:
