We went along to the Nelson Market on the saturday morning. They had a good variety of items for sale and it was nice to browse through the stalls. Unfortunately it was a cold day and the rain was setting in so this did not help. I would still suggest you go and have a look as there are some... More

Frankly speaking, I had been here for several times. I came on every Saturday during my stay, this is a really nice place to visit in Nelson! I did not do much survey during my first visit to Nelson, and coincidentally I came on Saturday and this market catches my attention as it was so happening!! I love it here.... More

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
