It really is an exciting time of year with new produce and stalls arriving weekly. Please pop on down and see what’s fresh this week. We are open in Kirby Lane (105 Bridge Street) from 8.00am to 1.30pm
Welcome Back to Romano’s
We are beyond excited to have Romano’s back at the Nelson Farmers Market with their sensational Capri tomatoes and vegetables, including eggplant, fennel, cucumber, capsicum, and zucchini. As always the quality and flavour is outstanding.
Welcome Back to Little Shaggery Farm
It’s wonderful having Little Shaggery Farm back at the Market. At the moment they have their organic plums and apples available. More fruit is coming in season very shortly so keep checking at the stall to see what’s fresh this week.
The Koefaga Vanilla stall will be closing for the season in mid February. Patricia will have a countdown of markets notice on her stall, so now is the time to check your pantry and stock up on your vanilla supply for the coming months. Online orders for Koefaga vanilla through www.vanilla4cooking.nz are also an option.
Welcome to Spring Grove Strawberries
Spring Grove Strawberries attended our pre-Christmas market and like it so much they have stayed on. This is fantastic as they have been growing strawberries for many years and grow large, juicy, bright red strawberries. Pop on down and give them a try. They come in a range of sizes.

Co-Op Stall Update
The Co-Op Stall at the Nelson Farmers Market has artisan food from local producers. Aroha Chocolate, Old Road Estate Candied Figs, Pinoli Pinenuts, and a new producer is Homemade.Kiwi who makes a range of dehydrated pre-mixes. There are five different dried soup mixes, veggie fritters, vegetable frittata, tropical fruit smoothie and dried mandarins.
