Big Island Farmers Markets

The Big Island's bounty of agricultural products are well represented at any number of great farmers markets across the island. From freshly roasted mac nuts and lehua blossom honey to organic mixed greens, tropical fruits and exotic produce of every variety imaginable, Hawai‘i Island is the undisputed agricultural leader in the state of Hawai‘i.

On the Kona side, the weekly Keauhou Farmers Market takes place every Saturday morning in the parking lot of Keauhou Shopping Center. Amid a backdrop of live Hawaiian music, the abundant offerings include fresh baked goods, jams, jellies, Kona coffee, flowers, coconut water, juice from the sugar cane and plenty of fruits and vegetables fresh off the vine.

South Kona Green Market
Open Wednesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Historic Kailua Village, the Kona Inn Farmers Market boasts lots of island-grown produce, beautiful tropical floral arrangements, leis and more — with over 40 vendors selling arts, crafts, coffee, gifts and more. On Sunday mornings in Captain Cook, the South Kona Green Market is the place to be for live music, artisan bread, mac nuts, locally grown fruits and produce, fine woodworking, crafts and food.

Hilo Farmers Market
If you happen to be in Hilo on Wednesday or Saturday, you won't want to miss the granddaddy of all farmers' markets on the Big Island. Located on the Bayfront in downtown Hilo, the Hilo Farmers Market features everything from Puna goat cheese and locally grown honey to delicious mochi, baked goods, local-style lunch items and a bounty of Big Island produce at great prices.

Every morning, guests of Holualoa Inn will enjoy an abundance of ingredients selected fresh from our own gardens that surround the Inn. For breakfast, Chef Brian prepares gourmet fare featuring eggs from our coop, arugula from our lettuce beds and papayas from our orchards, to name a few. Wake up to the aroma of 100-percent Kona coffee harvested from our 31-acre coffee estate in the heart of Kona Coffee Country.
