Auckland is at Level 3 Covid response and most of New Zealand including Nelson is at Level 2.
We are expecting an announcement from the Government on Wednesday 17th February as to the continuing status of the country. We will then know whether The Nelson Market will be able to operate this Saturday.
Once that directive is given we will advise on the status of The Nelson Market and Sunday Market.
Our first priority is to protect the Nelson public and stallholders and encourage you to scan every visit around Nelson.
Meanwhile you can shop online with our stallholders 7 days, and pick up your family’s face masks at these Nelson Market stalls:
