Farmer’s Market Day!
Today is Hilo Farmer’s Market Day! In ancient days, during times of famine, the island population would head to Waipi’o Valley as a sure bet for good food. Today the island population heads to Hilo Bay for the best fruits and vegetables on the island. The farmers here grow food you didn’t know existed! This is where we buy most of our food for students. It’s the freshest, healthiest, best tasting, and least expensive… so why not! We also like to support our local farmers, which preserves the green rolling hills, open spaces, and farmland of the Hamakua Coast; the breadbasket of Hawaii.
