Love this place! - Edit

I went to the market on Wednesday to take advantage of the hot food stands and was not disappointed! I was able to get a green papaya salad and some massaman curry for under $15. Both were fantastic.

Pros: Selection of vegan fare, Price

Excellent market - Edit

My husband and I went on a Saturday, when the largest selection of vendors is there, and found several prepared vegan food choices in addition to a wide selection of local produce at fair prices. We ate Peruvian-style vegan tofu tamales. Other stalls had avocado summer rolls, noodles, vegan banana bread, cake and cookies, fresh juices, taro products and shave ice. Definitely worth a visit.

A must stop - Edit

We frequented the market on market days- Wednesday and Saturday- as well as days between. On Market days we found nut butters, Thai rolls. vegan tapioca pudding, and smoothies that were not available on non-market days. All that plus ample fresh produce, we ate like royalty for our week in Hilo. Even on non-market days farmers sell produce so it is worth shopping here before going to grocery stores, even the natural foods stores, on non-market days.

Pros: Fresh!, Tons of produce!, Ample vegan options

Go on the Wednesday - Edit

Apart from quality fresh fruit and veg, there is a guy here who sells homemade Jewish, vegan foods. I bought a couple of things from him and they were all good. Different flavours to what I'm used to since we don't have a Jewish population where I live.

I also noticed some vegan Asian foods so lots of choice!

On the downside, the food market is only on Wednesdays (and maybe Saturdays) although limited fresh produce is available every day.

Pros: Good fruit and veg selection, Vegan homemade goods, Vegan Asian food

Cons: Food market not every day

Fun! - Edit

Bought a few produce items I never ate before. A must stop on a visit to Hilo. Get a coconut cracked open, purchase tropical flowers, try different types of bananas or buy a locally carved box. If you are hard core on organics, you should ask.

Great local market - Edit

Fun market- great place to see and sample fresh local produce as well as lots and lots of vendors with crafts and souvenir items. Pretty crowded, but still a fun way to spend a couple hours.

Pros: large selection, unique local items, good value

Cons: crowded (but that's okay)
