In case you have missed the news we have relocated and are now trading from 23 Halifax Street next to the Elma Turner Library. Thus far we have had one week at this location and it is proving a good site for us. It gives us more room for our new stalls stalls is in a busy area of town.
We timed our move well as our seasonal stalls are starting to return to the Market and in the last few days there has been a noticeable increase in temperature, which holds the promise of future summer produce. Cherry season is very near and it is wonderful to have strawberries back at the Market. We have a great range of artisan food and ready-to-eat food for a tasty market lunch. Please read on to meet our new stallholders and see who has returned.
We are open every WEDNESDAY at 23 Halifax Street from 8am to 1.30pm.
Welcome Back to Koefaga Vanilla
From Wednesday 10 November, Patricia from Koefaga Vanilla will be back at the Nelson Farmers Market with her delictable range of vanilla extract, paste and pods.
Patricia Hunter has an idyllic lifestyle that many of us only dream of. For 8 months of the year, Patricia and her partner, Jim live on Niue Island. She grows vanilla and also buys cured pods in from local organic farmers, and runs a small holiday home business. Patricia and her partner return to New Zealand during November for their annual break, and to catch up with family and friends. She brings vanilla pods with her and these are then processed into extract and paste.
Patricia looks forward to attending the Nelson Farmers Market. She enjoys the company of friendly enthusiastic stallholders and being part of a local food to local people group. She particularly enjoys being able to talk with her customers and to have so many repeat sales, and compliments such as “The best vanilla I have ever used”. That’s special and very satisfying!

Each week they front up at the Nelson Farmers Market with a growing range of vegetables which currently includes beets, turnips, zucchini, cucumbers and microgreens. Moving forward they will have a plethora of summer vegetables and fruit. They are dedicated to growing healthy food, working with nature to understand the soil food web and how to grow the healthiest plants possible. They don’t believe in using chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides.
Good Harvest have been coming to the Nelson Farmers Market for several weeks now, and each one has been a sell out. Be sure to swing by their stall and see what’s on offer this week.
