Cool place to walk around if you’re in town. Gives you a chance to get a feel of the locals and the culture. Lots of small vendors selling their product. Nice for a laid back, chill kind of day.

The Hilo Farmers Market is covered with tarps and the indoor food court is inside a building. Thank you for your question and hope to see you there soon.
