Small but worthwhile

Small market, about 15 merchandise stalls and 8 food stalls. All stalls had unique stuff and good value with very reasonable pricing.

The market opens only on Sat 10 to 4pm. It's a small market with some food stalls and mainly craft and art. Handmade necklaces and earring, painting and craft work, designer clothes etc.

Markets can be very predictable and I certainly wouldn't put this on my must do list. But if you are in Wellington on a Saturday morning you might enjoy a stroll through this one. We certainly found more than the average stall that was worth a look.

We enjoyed wandering around the market and the food stalls. A good variety of items for Christmas shopping and tables to sit and dine on the food for sale there.
