“One of the best markets anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

This place is a real buzz on a Saturday morning. We found the bread stall to have bread as good as we get in France and the vegetables and fruit really good and cheap. Really, there is everything for everyone here and although very crowded it seems to work well. There are many food and beverage options as well as everything else - fashion, crafts, jewelry, honey, cheese, health products and supplements - all in a convenient location. Highly recommended.

“Always worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Nelson is full of people with talent, whether it is food, clothing, jewellery or something else. The market is a great place to see and sample all of that.

“Best market in new Zealand so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

We have been travelling round new Zealand for about 2 months and have been to a lot of the markets and this is by far the best we have seen. Would plan a trip back to Nelson just to go back!
