We visited this market 20 years ago and it was still as good as we remembered & even better. Although we didn't eat any food it all looked yum. We loved all the different kinds of art work & couldn't resist a few bits & pieces to put in the suitcase. Stall holders really friendly & happy to chat even... More

Wonderful little market. We had a delicious lunch of sandwich wraps and dumplings -- it was hard to choose from the several appealing choices -- and fresh fruit ice cream. For breakfast, a dinner, and hiking snacks, we bought homemade muesli, bread, mozzarella, berries, fruit, and local vegetables.

Seriously, the stall with the stuffed Maori fried bread is fantastic. The woman there is friendly and the food is delicious. I'm craving it right now. I tried the most popular one, with pesto cream cheese and other fresh ingredients and I was in heaven. I could eat one every day. When enough time passed (2 hours) I went back... More

Some excellent produce and certainly very different to that offered in shops - a chance for variety. A gathering of creative people would be a good description with an eclectic choice of goods on offer. Not like some markets you could visit on holiday. Friendly, helpful stall holders all only too happy to talk about their products. Lovely

My wife and I drove up from Blenheim this morning specifically to check out the street market today and we were not disappointed. Hundreds of vendors and some amazing talent and creativity were on display, not to mention the fresh produce of all varieties. I'm quite certain there is something for everyone there. Way to go, Nelson, and thank you... More

The market opens early - 8 am. They have produce, flowers, honeys and jams, candy, olive oils, bakery items (we had a lovely berry and cheese croissant), jewelery, clothes, knitting, hats, and art and crafts galore, with a few buskers thrown in. It was big and took us 2 hours to walk around leisurely. I'd recommend getting a coffee at... More

The Nelson market is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Lots of crafts and organic veggies/fruit - plenty to eat as you wander around. Highly recommend the dumplings and whitebait fritters.
