Fantastic market with local goods....both food and products. Excellent fun morning with many temptations to be tried before bought. An absolute must when in Nelson on a Saturday morning.

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.

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.

Nelson Saturday Market is a great place to get your fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses plus heaps of locally crafted goods. Finish your visit by enjoying a coffee or an international delicacy while sitting out in Nelson's famous sun. Always plenty to see and do
