On Wednesdays and Saturdays Hilo Farmers Market hosts over 200 vendors making it one of the largest farmers market on the island! It’s open every day, but there are more vendors on these days. It's the perfect pit stop on Shaka Guide's North Island Jungle Adventure Loop.

When you’re in Hawaii, we ask that you act respectfully towards the locals, land and wildlife. Please pick up your trash; never touch any marine life, plants, or other animals; and avoid spots that are unsafe. Hawaii’s natural resources are precious, it’s up to all of us to help preserve these resources.
