The shear variety of goods on offer here is astounding. Fresh fruit and veggies, wonderful salami, breads and tons of articles of clothing, jewellery, artwork…….you can even commission a piece of knitted goods from a picture……..Marvellous outing!

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.

This is one of the most interesting markets we have every visited. There is almost no "junk" and a lot of evidence of New Zealand ingenuity in the handcrafts - purchased plenty. There is a fascinating array of food as well as a wide selection of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Great food, interesting products, quality crafts, friendly people. In brief that sums up this place. We planned our trip to hit Nelson on Saturday to see the market, and glad we did. If you have a campervan this is a great place to re-stock. We will always remember this market for introducing us to Misomite. Just need to figure out... More

So nice to go to a market where the majority of things appeared to be locally made/grown/produced. Lots of quality art and jewellery, fruit and vegetables and good food stalls including caramel almonds, freshly made waffles, etc. Lovely atmosphere with plenty of buskers.

A lovely place to spend a few hours on a Saturday morning. There is an array of produce to temp all foodies and sampling is encouraged. Hand wars are also tempting with a great variety of woollen articles.

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
