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.

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.

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!
