Is not that big as you can imagine. Even though it is pretty complete regarding local food and handcraft. I thought I'll find maori stuff but it doesn`t. There is a lot a different type of cheese honouring the dairy local production, good to taste.

Definitely a must visit if in Nelson. The market was much bigger than I was expecting and there was a great variety of stalls. The fresh figs and feijoas we bought were delicious. Could easily spend an hour wandering around.

Easy to spend all morning rummaging. Arts, crafts & food - from produce to takeaways. Plenty of sample tastings. Most seemed to have mobile eftpos running off a phone app.
