Last weekend was my first visit to the markets as I come from Wanganui and haven't been to Wellington for some time. My friends daughter told me about it and I am so grateful she did. It was absolutely wonderful to see something different than what you usually see at markets. No pressure from stall holders to purchase which was great because you could just browse and soak up the atmosphere. I purchased a couple of gifts for friends and have also told heaps of people from Wanganui about it. So next time I am in Wellington the markets will be the first place I visit.

A terrific way to spend an hour or so in Wonderful Wellington on a Saturday morning. Love the theme days (especially the woolly one) and have fallen in love with the yummy fudge. I love that people are able to browse and talk to the stallholders and never feel under pressure to buy. You get the sense that the crafters and stallholders really enjoy what they do, and are (justifiably) proud of what they produce, whether it be quirky, clever or just beautiful to own.

Some real gems to be found here, original and handmade. Just love my laser cut and hand painted leather earrings! Some repetition of items across stalls, but if you go on one of the "theme" days, you're sure to find heaps of what you fancy. My fav is the wool theme day. There's also a really great selection of gifts, decorations and crafty ideas in the Christmas market days too! I'll have to save up this year for Christmas, there was so much more I wanted to buy (for me!).

The variety of stalls is amazing and so many of the items on sale are hand made. A wonderful place to buy gifts for friends and family - and yourself!

Although the space it is in is not the most scenic, it is conveniently located, has a few good food options (and good coffee!), often there is love music, and a very good assortment of products. For example, there is often homemade soaps and lotions, homemade jams and chutney and brownies, cookies. But also hand-dyed lovely merino wool yarns, greenstone jewelry, hand-woven flax hats (hipster type, very cute), and lots of handmade clothes of high quality and kiwi style. Also most of the vendors are also the creators and you can chat with them. The prices are better than when the same products are sold in stores since you can buy direct. Great place to get a special souvenir. Also on different dates they have different themes so one date might be fibre crafts and there will be a lot of those kinds of crafters.
