We have been travelling round new Zealand for about 2 months and have been to a lot of the markets and this is by far the best we have seen. Would plan a trip back to Nelson just to go back!

This is a great market, put it on your 'to do' list if on Nelson on a Saturday. A huge variety of goods and stalls to appeal to everyone. The fresh produce was amazing, I couldn't get enough, mindful that I was getting on a plane in the afternoon. It gets very busy and you need to allow time for... More

We had heard good things about Nelson Market, and we weren't disappointed. This is great little market with craft stalls, produce, food, and musicians, and it reminded me of Hobart's Salamanca (except for the waterfront!) We were glad we arrived early, as it got very busy after about 10:30 am. We wandered along the stalls, stuffed ourselves with magnificent cherries,... More

Would recommend this to everyone to visit - can spend many hours here checking all the items out and enjoying the many... More

This is a must if you are visiting Nelson on the weekend. Cant beat all the fresh local fruit and veges and the handmade crafts. Make sure you have lots of time and cash as there are so much to see.

My friends and I spent a morning at Nelson's Saturday market. Not only did Nelson turn on the hot sunny weather for us, but we didn't need to go anywhere else for shoppping! We had a beautiful range of fresh produce to choose from for our BBQ dinner that evening, a delightful array of cheeses, jams and pickles for our... More

This has just about everything you would want from a local market. There are the farmers and growers with what has just been picked,...fruit, veggies, flowers, and those that take these ingredients to make cheese, jams, pickles etc. Then there are the artists working with paint, wood and precious metals. Add to that the hot food vans providing local tastes... More
