Big Island farmers market or craft fair?

Is there a Farmer's Market &/or a craft market on the BI like I found on Kauai last year?
The Farmer's market was great for fresh fruits and veggies. The crafts near the blow hole is a great place to get gifts.
Thanks in advance for you response.

There is a farmer's market in Hilo, but the setting is much different than the one we attended in Hanalei . I recall a very nice selection of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

It's been a while since I was in Kona, but I know I went to one there and bought Kona coffee beans and orchids at ridiculously low prices. The coffee was super too, not blended or anything like that. It was in a parking lot on the main road that leads down toward the ocean wall, but I cannot recall what day etc... Thr HVCB has up to date lists on it's website which I think is gohawaii.com

There is a good farmers market in a parking lot on the main beach road in Kona. Also a crafters market farther down.
