Hawaii Big Island Farmers Markets

Big Island Farmers Market Information

Fresh & Local

“As long as one egg looks pretty much like another, all the chickens like chicken, and beef beef, the substitution of quantity for quality will go unnoticed by most consumers, but it is becoming increasingly apparent to anyone with an electron microscope or a mass spectrometer that, truly, this is not the same food.”
Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

Eating food that is grown responsibly from your local bio-region has a rippling effect throughout your community.   Everyone and everything benefits from vibrant healthy happy food.  Use your Big Island farmers' market locations to build the local food movement and support local farmers.  If you have the time strike up conversation with local farmers, get to know them & how your food arrives at the market.

Hawaii, unfortunately, imports a shocking level of its food.  Finding organic, or beyond organic, food can be challenging at times.  Visit our Farmers Market Hawaii page for some tips on seeking out local producers.

Saturday, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
65-1244 Lindsey Road (Parker School)

The Waimea Town Market, held every Saturday in the Parker School yard, opened in September, 2008 with nine vendors.  The Market has continued to grow over the last three years and is now home to over 30 vendors and showcases a wide diversity of products.  Offering gourmet meals, and plenty of community-friendly picnic table space to eat and converse, the Market has become a favorite Saturday morning gathering place for residents and visitors alike.  Live music is often on tap, and the Market regularly hosts free events for all.

The Market is run for the benefit of Parker School by un-paid volunteers; vendor rents are therefore passed directly to the school and provide a big boost to the school’s educational programs.  To date, the Market has raised over $60,000 for the school’s budget.  Support for our vendors will allow Parker School to continue to benefit from this significant source of income
