I could bore you with endless reasons of why shopping local supports our local economy…our farmers…
We provide you with freshest farm picked fruit and vegetables in Hilo, Hawaii….
Instead…I will give you 2 reasons!
- We Know our Farmers and vendors.…All of the fruit, produce, vegetables and products our vendors offer are “Grown in Hawaii” and actually they are all bringing products Grown on the big Island….There is no imported goods allowed; unlike other local farmers markets. All of the Farmers Markets in Hawaii that are sanctioned, supported and endorsed by the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation enforce a strict policy of Hawaii Grown….No imports allowed!
- As if #1 didn’t convince you…It’s plain fun at our market, its not just a trip to the supermarket its a trip to a farm, a store and a community. Your part of the event and our event occurs every Saturday morning from 6:30 am till Noon….
For Peep’s sake, hop on downtown to the Kino’ole Farmers Market this Saturday morning, March 30, 2013, where you will easily find egg-straordinary bunny treats to create your own basket full of goodies.
We’re truly blessed with vendors who bring delicious produce from their fields, exotic tropical fruits and citrus from their orchards and fresh breads baked to be shared among family and friends.
Fill your basket with locally grown and made products, they make a wonderful gift, especially fresh flowers….
We’re open every Saturday morning from 6:30 Am to Noon at 1990 Kinoole Street in Hilo, Hawaii near the Kawate Seed shop and on the Shopping Mall side of town, not downtown and we always have lots of free parking!
Richard Ha wrote in his blog…Kinoole Farmers Market on Saturday Mornings
The Kino‘ole Street Farmers Market, located on Kino‘ole Street two streets mauka of Puainako Town Center, is growing.
When Richard this in April of 2009 the market had grown to about 16 vendors…Now we regularly have 20+ Vendors!
Slow and steady wins the race for growing agriculture, farmers and markets in our opinion…We’ve built a firm foundation from which to grow and with our new marketing efforts for 2013 were expecting continued growth at the Kinoole Farmers Market!
