Lots of fruit, mangoes, dragonfruit, papaya, lychees ... yum, yum, yum. Cut dragonfruit in half and freeze overnight. Ice cream like, but it's fruit. Also bought a flower arrangement for $5 and it lasted a week and a half!
I was so excited to visit one of these and was not able to get to them in Waimea. I would have preferred to go there. The food market part was small, and the prices were not posted on most. I am new to a...More

Yes it is open on Sunday. We went to the Hilo Market on a Saturday and it was ok. But on Sunday we went to the Maku'u Farmers Market near Pahoa and it was much better than Hilo. There were more vendors and prices were lower to. It is about 30 minutes east of Hilo. We actually went there by accident and didn't plan on it as we were heading to the Tide Pools to go snorkeling. (worth it) The selection of merchandise was so much better and it wasn't nearly as congested at Hilo and much much cleaner and better organized. Hilo's Market smelled funny, and dirty. They also had things there that Hilo didn't have like fresh fish caught that am. So if you don't mind traveling 30 minutes from Hilo I would so go there rather than to Hilo hands down. On a side note they have a cove called the champagne pond 5 miles away that is heated geothermal from volcano and very cool to swim in and snorkel lots of fish and of course as I mentioned before the tide pools right down the road from champagne pond (5 min) Hope this helps
