Love my visits to Nelson market. Lots of craft and art work from local artisans - including wooden toys, carvings pictures, knitting, and clothing, leather work and jewellery. Delicious home made jams and other home made food stuffs to buy - breads, cheeses, meats, veges, cakes etc plus gluten free produce if you need it. Food and coffee stalls to... More

While not overly large, the Nelson Market had a little bit of everything (produce, artisan goods, edible homemade goodies, and food trucks/stands). Even if the weather doesn't cooperate, the market still sets up weekly and offers a great way to interact with the locals and grab a tasty bite to eat! Look for a little sandwich shop (I can't remember... More

There were loads of market stalls offering creative handmade objects, adults' clothing, childrens' clothing, hand-knitted garments, jewellery, soaps, ornaments, art, fresh produce, plants, baked goods - to mention a few. There is also a few food and coffee stalls. It is relatively small - so not too far to walk. Take cash as not all stalls have Eftpos. It is... More

A great place to visit on a Saturday morning. Good selection of food, produce, arts & crafts etc. Stall holders very friendly. There's something for everyone. We're certainly going home with something new.

Come hungry and eat your way through all the fabulous local produce. Try the Olie Bolletjies, Galettes, fresh pressed local apple juice, sheep milk yogurt, Austrian baked goods.... don;t worry you can then walk up the hill to the centre of NZ and work it all off on the steep incline. But before you do remember to visit some of... More

Nelson's Saturday market has a wide range of food, arts and crafts. When ever I visit Nelson I make a point of going to the market. There are regulars and then a few one-off stalls so there is always something different. There is everything from fruit & vegetables, breads, and cheeses to specialty, regional and seasonal foods. The arts and... More

This place is a real buzz on a Saturday morning. We found the bread stall to have bread as good as we get in France and the vegetables and fruit really good and cheap. Really, there is everything for everyone here and although very crowded it seems to work well. There are many food and beverage options as well as... More

Nelson is full of people with talent, whether it is food, clothing, jewellery or something else. The market is a great place to see and sample all of that.
