Hawi Farmers Market: A Charming Kohala Gem

Driving to the Hawi Farmers Market is a lovely experience in and of itself. The beautiful pastures, stunning ocean views, and winding country roads help set the mood for a fun trip to Hawi on a Saturday morning. This delightful gem of a farmer’s market is located at the entrance to the Kohala Village Hub in the historic town of Hawi.  

The current market represents a resurrection of the market that used to be across the street under the banyans in the park. With help from community partners 1 Heart HUB, Hawaii Farmers Union United, and North Kohala Eat Locally Grown, the market supports economic opportunities for farmers and producers in North Hawaii. The market accepts SNAP/EBT. 

A lovely mix of old Hawaii and a vibrant, young energy have attracted a diverse community to North Kohala, and the Hawi Farmers Market reflects the unique charm and creativity that the region has to offer. With about 10 to 12 regular vendors, the market has a diverse selection of high-quality produce and value-added products.  

You can find the following vendors regularly at the market like HIP Ag with ulu, eggplant, peppers, tinctures, greens and honey. Mango Medicinals offers dehydrated organic fruits and fruit leathers. Tess Gardens grows an array of macadamia nuts, bok choy, cucumber, sweet potato, pineapple and onions. Kailand Farm provides organic mixed salad greens, tomatoes, green onions, basil, mango and eggs. Totally Baked brings fresh baked sourdough breads and sweet breads and Naked Cow Dairy makes fresh butter, cheese, labneh and other dairy products. Products listed are representative of items typically offered and will change with the seasons.

Nearby tables offer marketgoers a place to sit and relax while enjoying a freshly baked treat and a glass of lemonade. A variety of local musical talent plays at the market, adding to the enjoyable atmosphere and experience. The breezy winds of Kohala (ka makani o Kohala) help to keep folks comfortable. ADA-compliant restrooms are conveniently located nearby in the Village Hub.

After a satisfying market visit, shoppers can enjoy a stroll through old Hawi Town, taking in the warm and welcoming ambiance while making plans for their next visit.
