Great morning out

Well worth a visit. Lots of options and the fresh produce looked very good. We easily spent an hour there and if we lived in Nelson would be there every Saturday Morning

We hit Nelson en route to Golden Bay on a Saturday, the centre was closed off, partly for a pipe band competition and also the market.Stacks of fresh produce, preserves, snacks etc and a cornucopia of eclectic stalls offering excellent value.My wife bought a merino poncho with a possum collar in a dazzling red !

We walked down the street to he market this morning and were pleasantly surprised. We got the best chai tea ever, as well as delicious crepes and even bought a souvenir necklace. Great time on a Saturday morning. Friendly vendors and great atmosphere!

Had the best falafel wrap for breakfast - husband enjoyed the sexy salmon version. Gifts for kids were purchased, and tasty comestibles to nibble on back at the hotel. A great variety of crafts, food and local produce

Love to come for a stroll whenever I have time on Saturday Morning. Plenty of craft to have a look at, but there's 1 particular stall that I love the most, models made out of recycle cans. I always make up some excuses to buy them, for gifts, decorations.... Kudos for the retired stall owner for his great work!

We visited this market 20 years ago and it was still as good as we remembered & even better. Although we didn't eat any food it all looked yum. We loved all the different kinds of art work & couldn't resist a few bits & pieces to put in the suitcase. Stall holders really friendly & happy to chat even... More

Wonderful little market. We had a delicious lunch of sandwich wraps and dumplings -- it was hard to choose from the several appealing choices -- and fresh fruit ice cream. For breakfast, a dinner, and hiking snacks, we bought homemade muesli, bread, mozzarella, berries, fruit, and local vegetables.

Seriously, the stall with the stuffed Maori fried bread is fantastic. The woman there is friendly and the food is delicious. I'm craving it right now. I tried the most popular one, with pesto cream cheese and other fresh ingredients and I was in heaven. I could eat one every day. When enough time passed (2 hours) I went back... More
