Finally, here is a new post about our recent trip to Big Island, Hawaii. For this spring break, we went to the Big Island, Hawaii. The trip was amazing. We met so many wonderful people and got to eat fresh and exotic fruits and vegetables. We stayed in different parts of the Big Island and traveled around the island making a huge circle. I will post more about other parts of the Island, but this post is dedicated to the farmer’s market in Hilo.
There is a small farmer’s market every day in Hilo, but on Wednesdays and Saturdays there is a big one. It rains a lot in Hilo making it easy to raise tropical fruits and vegetables. One of the best parts about Hilo and the Big Island in general is that most of the people seemed to be happy, warm, and welcoming. There were a lot of hippies there but less tourists than I expected, which was surprising. Because of the warm climate, happy people, fresh fruits and vegetables, and authentic Thai food, Hilo has made it to the best places to visit in my list and by far the best places I have been to in the United States. Ever since I have gotten back to Moscow, I have been seriously considering moving there Here are some photos and videos of farmer’s markets we went to in and around Hilo. Enjoy!
Born to pose or what!!
This is how chocolate looks like before it gets heavily processed. These roasted cocoa beans are so flavorful, I had to buy a couple packs. Unfortunately, they are more expensive than chocolate Fish in Suisan Fish Market. The fish seemed fresh, but the prices were high!Colorful potatoes.Even though I like Hilo, Idaho potatoes are still my favorite. Green Papaya Salad and Jack Fruit. I have a video post on a lady making this papaya salad. This salad reminded me of our trip to Thailand. Fresh BasilI love pearls. How romantic!Cocoa beans again!
