I like to browse at the Kea'au Farmers Market. You can spend some time looking over baked goods, fresh flowers, exotic fruits, and other local produce. Local farmers sell anthuriums of every hue, star fruit, breadfruit, papayas, sugarcane, oranges, vine-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, apple bananas, rambutan, taro, etc. They also have other vendors that sell everything from handmade cards to baby clothing. You can also find other products like locally made crafts, macadama nuts, and locally grown coffee. There is a Polynesian style fast food eatery at the Kea'au Farmers Market which I thought was quite unusual. This Farmers Market is located in a permanent green open air building unlike the Hilo Farmers Market which is located on the Mamo Street. The Hilo Farmers Market is not in a permanent structure but it is a conglomeration of vendors selling their goods under large tents. There is ample parking in the back lot of the Kea'au Farmers Market. This Farmers Market is small but they offer locally produced items and locally made crafts.
