Hilo Farmers Market–a Treat for the Senses

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—I LOVE Farmers Markets…just LOVE them! And the charming Hilo Farmers Market is no exception.

Primarily open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the Hilo Farmers Market is broken up into two main areas. The first section predominantly offers crafts, clothing, and other gift items. The second area features beautiful produce, florals, and ‘Ono Grindz. As with other markets, I love to stroll up and down the stalls while chatting with the vendors about their products.

Truth be told, I could go on to describe all the wonderful delights that the Hilo Farmers Market offers but as they say, pictures speak a thousand words.
