Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

With easy parking near the market, this was a good place to visit on a Saturday morning. Large market with lots of stalls, food, crafts and plenty of produce for really good prices.

Hubby and I love our markets, and Nelson's is hands down the best we have been to. The produce is amazing, the products are practical and useful, and the food is to die for. Couldn't recommend it more!

We like to visit markets when on vacation. The timing worked out where we would be in Nelson on Saturday morning so we made sure to come here. It was quite rainy on the day we came (unusual from what I hear), so the number of vendors was less than usual. Nonetheless, there were a wide variety of stalls, mostly on the high end. It is certainly not a flea market. On a sunny day, I can see this as being a great place to spend a Saturday morning.

I do quite like to wander a Saturday market when I get the chance and this was quite well laid out in a carpark in the centre of Nelson city. Some local crafters and clothing makers, jewellery, a guy on a piano, various food manufacturers (bread, black garlic, honey, sweets etc), a greengrocer or two and plenty of others!
Worth a look depending on what your tastes are and is apparently on rain or shine.

The most gorgeous Linen clothing. Whilst it was a quiet weekend there, still managed to find some lovely hand made pieces to take home.
