A wide variety of stalls ranging from fruit and vegetables, locally made artisan bread, chocolate, honey, tea, etc to funky jewelry, clothing, crystals, fossils, art, plants and more. Aim to spend at least an hour or two meandering, sampling and listening to the buskers. Grab a coffee and Dutch oliebollen for a snack, or visit one of the many other... More

So many stalls, excellent food stalls, amazing art stalls, plant stalls, this is a fantastic market and definitely worth an hour of your time. You do have to pay for your parking as it is in the centre of Nelson. I just love this market it is a great example of local markets.

You get to see what Nelson is famous for. We bought fresh produce for our stay from here. And the food was awesome. Amazing platform thriving local businesses to display their stuff.

If you are on a Saturday morning in Nelson the market is a must. Nice arty stalls, good organic food, funky clothing and a lot more to see. My first place to look for presents.

Well, the South Island's for sure : ) Although not styled a farmers market almost everything here is grown or made within the Nelson/Tasman region. Its open year round, so depending on the season the produce that is available will vary, but there is always a range including a lot of organics. A good selection of food stalls operates, and...

Excellent range of stalls even in winter. Get all your fresh fruit and vegetables as well as vegetable plants, cheese, clothing, and a huge choice of takeaway food. Talk to the artists peddling their arts and crafts and rummage through the tools for sale. Definitely something for everyone.
