Don't Forget a Reusable Bag!
The sprawling mass of tarps that make up the hugely popular Maku'u Farmer's Market house arguably the most diverse collection of vendors on the Big Island. The selection of food alone is astounding, so go hungry and choose from amazing BBQ, Thai, Samoan, smoothies, baked goods, Indian, Mexican, Crepes, and more. There is different entertainment each week on the small stage by the picnic tables. Clean bathrooms also available.
The Maku'u Farmer's Market is open Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and is located right off the highway before Pahoa and after Ainloa drive, coming from Hilo.
If you find yourself out in Puna on a Saturday morning, it will be worth your while to follow Highway 137 to the neighborhood of Seaview and find the unique market at the Seaview Performing Arts Center for Education (or S.P.A.C.E.). This beautiful large buiding hosts a modest sized farmer's market, but what it lacks in vendor numbers it makes up for tremendously in creativity.
We like our favorite clothing for work or play to look good, but more importantly it has to feel good. A soft breathable fabric in the right fit is a pleasure to wear. Honolua Surf Co. carries not just bathing suits and surf shorts, but an extensive line of clothing for men and women that is suited to comfortable island living.
There are Honolua stores both in Waikoloa (in the King's Shops) and Kailua Kona (in the Kona Inn Shopping Village).
You'll find a unique combination of vintage and modern, dressy and casual items for women at Hula Moon Boutique, located in both Honoka'a (on main street) and Waimea (at Parker Square Shopping Center off Highway 19). It's a great place to find something special. Give yourself some time to really browse around and dig through their racks - there's a lot of great stuff to see!
