How it Works

If you grow produce or make value-added agricultural products on Hawaiʻi Island, we’d LOVE to have you as one of our producers! Here is how Hawaiʻi Farm-to-Car works:

  • Every Thursday, you’ll upload your list of available products, quantities, and pricing to our online marketplace.
  • Customers shop the market online from Friday morning to Monday afternoon each week.
  • You’ll get a pick list for all of your orders on Monday afternoon and will need to drop off your items at our aggregation location in Hilo on Tuesday or Wednesday. 
  • Customers pick up their Farm-to-Car orders from 3pm-6pm Wednesday afternoons.

The Fine Print:

  • Producers are not required to list or sell every week.
  • You will be in control of setting your prices.
  • Products are automatically marked up 30% to help cover our operating costs. You will still be paid the price you set for your products.
  • All products must be grown or produced in Hawaiʻi.
  • All producers must have and provide a valid Hawaiʻi GET Tax License.
  • Value-added producers of packaged products must provide proof that their products are prepared in a certified kitchen and labeled accordinglyIf you are a producer in East Hawaiʻi and are in need of a certified kitchen space, check out our Hilo Food Hub.
