These markets are great, and really showcase small town NZ at its best. As a male in my 20s, markets aren't always my thing. A lot of the things for sale tend to be aimed at different demographics! However the Nelson Markets have a really enjoyable vibe. Even if you don't want to buy anything, the colourful people and stalls,... More

Nelson Saturday Market is the best market in New Zealand when it comes to organic fruit, vegetables, nuts, gluten-free breads, etc. It's a birthplace of Urban Hippie miso and Pic's Peanut Butter but the best find are the nuts - you can buy a 1kg hermetically sealed bad of spray-free hazelnuts from Hazelbrook Hazelnuts (http://www.phi-hazelnuts-nelson.co.nz/) for only NZD 25. Bargain!

The farmers market in Nelson is a must if you are staying in or near Nelson. It offers lots of fresh locally grown organic produce and healthy snacks like the vegan food bar where you can get a vegan curry or even vegan burgers. This is an awesome attraction itself for health conscious people, vegans or people who are keen... More

Nelson has many creative and arty people. The Market is the place to come and see them. Paintings, jewellery, clothing, woodwork and much more. There's the productive who lovingly make breads, cheeses, there's oils and sauces, vegies and much more. The place can seem busy and bustling and yet the pace seems slowed down so is relaxed. I love the... More

If I'm in Nelson on Saturday I always like to get to the market. Great coffee, stalls with old hand tools, clothes, wood turners, organic fruit and veg, hand made knives and my favourite - great German style sausage with sauerkraut and mustard.

We happened to be there on a Saturday when it was open. Not big, but we had fun looking around. Best thing we bought was sand-blasted wine-bottle drinking glasses. The bottom half of green wine bottles were sand-blasted with New Zealand icons-kiwis, fan-tailed birds and ferns. Make great gifts and souvenirs!

Nice little market to eat your way around. Lovely local produce, arts, crafts & a great selection of food to taste as you wander around. Parking can be tiresome especially if you're an out of towner so be patient when looking for a spot in one of the many surrounding street parking areas.

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
