“Markets on Wednesday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We were rained out from riding on a Wednesday but there was a street market set up on Baker Street. Lots of great local artists and vendors selling locally made or grown goods.

Shopping on Baker Street is amazing already...adding the market in on Wednesday was a bonus!

“Artisan street in the mountains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Lots of quirky little shops and restaurants. People sell a lot of unique hand-made items alongside the normal catchment of things. It'll keep you busy for 2 hours. Note: dogs are not welcome on Baker street.

“Felt out of place in a work shirt”

Nice place, some great shops but a lot of people just hanging about enjoying an 'alternative life style'.

“Nice main street in Nelson”

Check out the Co-op store. There are very good restaurants on Baker Street. Prices of clothing seemed high.
