    Great swap mart
    I went on a Wednesday and it was still a huge presentation of lots of really good items. One of the best places for Hawaiian fashion, reasonable prices, and lots of beautiful art items. It's easy to get to via the bus. Just kind of a long ride but well worth it. Go early cuz it does get warm. Lots of fun

    Worth a visit!
    We drive here from Waikiki, found parking easy and there was plenty if it. Entrance was $2 pp. basically outside market around the outside of stadium. Has markets, secondhand and found stalls. It is hot however plenty of places to buy cold drinks and food. It was a great place to buy Hawaiian souvenirs, we bought 6 tee shirts for $20. There are restrooms available. We spent a couple of hours, though stalls do start to get a bit repetitive. A must to do on your visit.

    A good time, lots of repetitive vendors, but still some interesting finds
    It was a fun way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. But shade is rare and it can get hot! Lots of vendors, but you will quickly notice that it's several of the same vendors, over-and-over again. Still some great finds. Very friendly sellers. And, something different from the typical tourist activities. I'd go back, but don't need to visit on every visit to Oahu

    Aloha Stadium
    Your typical flea market. Nice to walk around and look for inexpensive Hawaiian souvenirs. Nominal fee to enter 2$ per person which I assume helps pay for the facilities. They allow you to use the stadium bathrooms which are better then a porta potty.

    Get your souvenirs here!!!
    Bring your walking shoes and cash! This is the place to get your souvenirs! Hundreds of vendors! The tshirt vendor on the left when you enter on the back side is the best! They are friendly and have Gildan brand shirts 6 for $20. Be sure to check out Names All Day for handmade leather bracelets! This was my favorite vendor!!

    Hot, lots of duplicate vendors and needs more tables and shade for shoppers
    Lots of vendors, many are duplicate. Found some good buys…. Some booths are like garage sale items. It was hot the day we went could have some shade options for shoppers. Food trucks were great but need more tables to enjoy the food.

    One stop to buy art and souvenirs!
    Best place to buy pearl/Polynesian traditional jewelry, accessories, wood carved decor, clothes and local photography/food. Buy after you explore few shops for prices and variety. Take cash as only few accept card.

    Cheapest souvenirs in Oahu
    The Aloha Stadium swap meet has so many things available to purchase. The prices at the swap meet are much cheaper than in Oahu stores and they are the same things. I always buy Hawaii print short and long sleeve t-shirts, sweat shirts, beach towels, and even Hawaii print luggage sets, along with many other favorite souvenirs.

    Dress for a workout it’s lots of walking
    I would rank this experience of five out of five. I’ve been to swap meets all over California, and this one’s got its fair share of great deals. The swap meet had authentic Hawaiian gear and authentic Hawaiian foods and vendors. A lot to offer and it was a huge stadium, the flea market wraps around the entire outside of the stadium. It’s a long walk. Be prepared to possibly get rained on or walk in the hot hot sun I would advise bringing an umbrella or a sun, hat, and comfortable shoes.

We came on a Sunday around 9:30. There was a big line of cars to get in. It’s $2 a person which includes your parking. You won’t see a large parking area (with no shade) until you have nearly driven all the way around. The swap meet stalls are in rows circling around the outside of the abandoned stadium. Produce vendors seem to be on one side, and the very few food trucks (felt like I saw only 4) are on the other side. It is a swap meet so expect some “stalls” (really just a small spot sometimes with a shade cover to mark the area) to look like garage sale leftovers. All the advice I read said you could find good souvenirs at a low cost. I only saw cheaply made items that didn’t look like they would last a month. Other than getting more steps done for the day, this was a waste of time.

We walked around the entire stadium and felt that some vendors had 2-3 locations, as we saw the same stuff. There are a lot of local artisans, a variety of food, baked items, fruit, shaved ice, and other treats throughout. Plenty of tshirts and hat vendors.
A small $2.00/pp cost to enter, and walk around. Depending on what you need or looking for, the swap meet is a good place to go and see.
We found that there are more vendors on Sunday than when we had gone on Wednesday.

I read the reviews good and bad and decided this was a place I wanted to try. I’m so glad I went. Yes many booths are the same but some are exceptional. I got a wonderful print from a photographer in Oahu that I am going to have framed. Picked up some great souvenirs for the folks back home and some small thing to remind me of Hawaii in my everyday life . I do wish they had some benches because the walking was a lot in the heat for this 60 something woman. I will definitely be back.

A fun stop on your trip to Hawaii. We couldn’t wait to take our college age daughters to the swap meet. We went after we had our Pearl Harbor tour. The food vendors are great. We had a fresh pineapple smoothie with sugar cane juice added. It was delicious on the humid day. The kids enjoyed buying souvenirs and getting some other treats. The local vendors are wonderful and make you feel very welcome and answer all questions. This is a must stop for us. If you want cheap tshirts for gifts back home there are lots of vendors and those popular Hawaiian shirts/dresses/shorts/hats are found everywhere.

This Marketplace is the best place in Honolulu to buy souvenirs. There is a wide variety of items to choose from. Lots of locally made things. Prices were great compared to the local souvenirs shops. Plenty of food choices to eat there and take with you. There is a $2.00 per person entry fee which includes parking. Military receives a discounted entry fee.

There are basically 100+ different vendors offering about the same 10 things. Was not too impressed. Pricing was good, but felt like a waste of time trying to see everything
