Dog-Friendly Farmers’ Markets

Dog-Friendly Farmers’ Markets

Waimea Town Farmers’ Market at Parker School behind Paniolo Country Inn restaurant – look for the red w/white trim buildings. Fresh baked breads, produce, fresh-made sausage, flowers and crafts. Their website confirms, “The Market is dog-friendly, so if your best friend gets along well with others, feel free to bring him or her. Please keep your dog on a leash and be prepared to pick up in the event the unspeakable happens to happen. Mahalo for your cooperation.”
Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. to 12 Noon

Kamuela Farmers’ Market at Pukalani Stables (Grand Opening: Feb. 6, 2016)
67-139 Pukalani Rd., Waimea (at the very end of Pukalani Road behind Ace Hardware…can also drive down )
Saturdays, 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Pepper and I visited Kamuela Farmers Market on the day of their Grand Opening.  Since these vendors were originally from the Waimea Homestead Farmers Market (that has not allowed dogs since 2014), I was curious if they would allow dogs to this location since they ARE allowed at the Waimea Midweek Farmer’s Market (see below).  And the answer is YES, they are allowed!  We soon noticed quite a few other dogs…all smaller than us, but it was great to see so many vendors who are fellow dog lovers, including our new friend, Matthias Seelis with Shogun Hawaii, who has three rescued Doberman Pinschers!

Hilo Coffee Mill Farmers’ Market

Mountain View, Hawaii  96771
Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

There’s plenty of places to attach your dog leash to the stair case at the Hilo Coffee Mill, so that you can go inside and grab a cup of 100% Hawaiian coffee and then sit at one of the outside tables on their beautiful lanai.

As we parked, I noticed a sign that asks dog owners to please keep their dogs on leash since they have loose chickens all over the place.

All of the Hilo Coffee Mill farmers market vendors are under a single roofed area behind Hilo Coffee Mill.
