Nearing its 40th anniversary, the Nelson Market is an integral part of the Nelson community, bringing crowds into the central city on Saturday mornings. The market was launched by Nita Knight in the late 1970s. She was struck by the vibrancy of the region and the range of arts and crafts produced here. Held first in the Miller’s Acres Carpark, it quickly outgrew this space and was moved to Montgomery Square. As the Nelson region has grown, the range of products available has dramatically increased. Alongside the likes of potters, woodworkers and fibre artists, there is now a substantial variety of food stuffs; chocolate and cheesemakers, fresh produce and nuts for example, along with an abundance of locally made clothing, jewellery and many crafts. Takeaway foods with local and international flavours are very popular thanks to the large range of food carts. The Nelson Market has been a business incubator for many brands that have gone on to achieve both national, and in some cases, international success. Pic’s Peanut Butter, Anathoth Jams and Hogarth Chocolates are but a few of these. It would be a rare visitor to Nelson who doesn’t know about the Nelson Market before they arrive. It […]

Welcome to The Suter Art Gallery – where art matters The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū is a memorial to the second Bishop of Nelson, Andrew Burn Suter (1830-1895). Bishop Suter and his wife Amelia travelled to Nelson in 1867 to lead the Anglican diocese and they became major figures in early Nelson society. In addition to his official duties, Bishop Suter also busied himself with artistic pursuits as a recreational painter and collector of art. In 1889 he established the Bishopdale Sketching Club (now the Nelson Suter Art Society) and served as its first President and critic. He was also a friend of the painter John Gully (1819-1888) and developed a substantial collection of that artist’s work. In 1890, the Bishop suffered a stroke which left him incapacitated for the last five years of his life. During this period he discussed his ‘long cherished wish’ to present an art gallery to the people of Nelson. Immediately after the Bishop’s death in 1895, Amelia began to realise her husband’s dream. She gifted some land, money and Bishop Suter’s art collection as the founding donation. Herself unwell, Amelia then returned to England and died barely a year after her […]

ABOUT US WE HAVE LIVED IN NELSON FOR 17 YEARS AND STARTED THE RESTAURANT WITH THE HOPE TO BRING VIETNAMESE CUISINE TO NELSON’S COMMUNITY. WE WERE AWARE THAT THERE WERE NO VIETNAMESE RESTAURANTS IN NELSON, AND THAT NELSON DID NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE VIETNAMESE CULTURE AND FOOD. WE WANTED TO PRESENT THE VIETNAMESE FOOD IN A WAY THAT MADE PEOPLE INTERESTED IN VIETNAM AS A PLACE TO VISIT ONE DAY. OUR CHEF THE ANH PHAN HAD 20 YEARS’ EXPERIENCE WITH VIETNAMESE CUISINE, AND WAS ALSO FROM VIETNAM. THE NAME THE “THE GREEN BAMBOO” STEMS FROM THEIR CULTURE AND INTEREST IN BAMBOO. VIETNAMESE PEOPLE ARE SURROUNDED BY BAMBOO, AND IT BECOMES AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE LIVES. IT HAD BEEN A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THEIR HERITAGE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. Our Menu Find Out More ….
