Weekend To Do: Big Island Farmers’ Markets

Our local farmers’ markets are a great way to experience the amazing cultural diversity that Hawaii Island offers! There’s no better way than to visit one of the many farmers’ markets that take place year round all over the island. You can’t beat the prices or the selection either.

Farmers’ markets are also a great place to pick up locally handmade gifts, beautiful local artwork, and packaged foods. You may even get to strike up a conversation with the person who made the items or meet the actual artist! And don’t forget the flowers! The most abundant assortment of tropical flowers available!
