Great place to catch up with friends for a coffee and Oliebollen (dutch donut), stock up on fruit and vegies, bread from Rodrigo's or Breadman, cheeses, bratwurst and other german small goods from Doris. Looking for gifts to take overseas? This is a great place to look. Jewellery, bone carving, clothing, pottery, cushion covers, prints, wooden toys.

We have been to the Nelson Saturday market several times now over the years, and it never fails to produce amazing crafts/ clothes/produce which are great for presents. We discovered the best peanut butter in the world, there a few years ago which we still buy for our grandchildren! This time we found lovely merino wool tiny baby clothes, and... More

Market was a bit of a let down. Lacking a little. Expected more local crafts and art, clothing such as t-shirts, that kind of thing. Things for the traveller to take home. Found some really nice cushion covers though.

The Nelson Saturday Market has been going for a long time, I go most Saturdays. Always bring my visitors. It is such a vibrant fun place. Fresh or cooked food to cater to every taste and diet requirement. Lots of handmade goods too, from affordable fun pieces to works of art.

A variety on offer at this market. Woodwork, leather, candles, produce, food, clothing, pottery. ATM nearby as most is cash sales. Pity our doggie wasn't allowed in (which we only found out by a sign) and being on holiday we had to take turns going around the site. Which ended up being rushed and not enjoyable. On the main road... More

We enjoyed pottering around this great little market. There was a good range of interesting local crafts on display together with fruit and veg. We thought the prices were a tad high but then we find all the NZ prices a tad high compared to the Uk. Worth visiting. Plenty of parking available nearby.

We stumbled upon this market as we visited Nelson on the Saturday and it was a very pleasant wander around the stalls where there was a mix of fresh foods, crafts, accessories, toys and street food. Parking can be a bit of an issue but spaces open up around the surrounding streets if you keep looking.

Only my second visit to Nelson, this time for a holiday. Checked out the market while we were walking round town and liked what we saw! So happy we were blessed with a nice day. Lots of crafty, unique ideas and stalls to look at, while munching on an Italian donut! We ended up buying some locally brewed relish and... More
