Open around noon on Tuesday thru Sun. Lots of produce, clothes and trinkets. Avoid Wed as prices may be higher for the cruise ship. Seems like vendors here might be more retail merchants that buy wholesale from farmers. For a real farmers market go 5 mile south to the Keauhou shopping center on Sat btw 7:45 am and noon.

Walked through on Sunday. Most of what I saw in the way of trinkets or souvenirs were CHEAPER at the ABC stores or Target. The fruit and vegetables smelled wonderful, but we had already shopped at the grocery...and I thought the prices really weren't bargains.

We go to Hawaii usually in November and rent a house. This year was no exception. We found a lovely house just 45 minutes south of Kona overlooking the ocean. The local farmers have many Markets and although they are open one day a week, there are others to fill the other days. Fresh vegetables picked that morning and their... More

The farmers market did offer local fresh fruit and produce. It's a great place to buy local tropical fruit and try different things. The rest just felt tourist trappy, with over-priced tchotchkes. There was one booth of wood carvings with the artist working there - that was impressive.

The produce selection is fantastic, especially the fruit, and very inexpensive. Lots of jewellery places where you can pick up little bobbles, lovely lava rock jewellery. There's also a local man who does mask carvings which is neat to watch him work, and his masks are amazing. I like to support local craftsmen if possible. Cute little are to meander... More

Very cute place! Lots of great things to get. Some of my favorites include a snake walking stick (hand carved), some funny signs, and the jewelry. Some shops let you bargain and some do not. Honestly though, these people work hard so if you buy something small, that extra dollar could go a long way for them. One station had... More

Went to the Kona Farmeres market and found the BEST coffee for sale we have ever had. A little stand run by a wife and husband selling coffee grown on their farm. Talk about local, this is it. We bought a 16oz bag of fresh roasted medium bodied Kona coffee from them. Brought it home, ground it, and made a... More

Staying in Kona for a week with a large family meant we would need a lot of supplies, the fresh produce here was perfect for us to prepare some great meals. We tried fruit from almost every vendor here and it really pays to be selective and shop around. One vendor had great pineapple and another had better mangoes. We... More

We went here for souvenirs for friends and family that were actually made in Hawaii. We found fabric items (quilts, aprons & bags), jewelry (beads, gems & leather) soaps, fans etc. They also had lots of local fruits and vegetables.
