We were lucky to pass by Nelson on a Saturday and see the market with all the small shops food stands, had some dumplings which we're great! Nelson offers a great number of talented local craftsmen which were present at the market.

This gives one an idea of the amount and variety of locally grown product; fruit, vegetables, and jam,marmalades and flowers. It is a lot of fun to walk through and must be even more fun for locals to be able to shop here regularly.

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.
