The Nelson Market Open and Very Busy

Nelson Market October 23rd 2021

Nita Knight the Managing Director said “the Nelson Market is open today Saturday for Labour Day weekend but not Sunday”. All the stallholders were pleased to be open, some were overwhelmed with joy to have the public back again after such a long time.

There were crowds at the Market and surprising was the number of visitors to Nelson, probably here for Labour Weekend doing their shopping for Christmas. Visitors I spoke to were from Queenstown and Christchurch so a number of people have come a long way to see the Market and have a holiday up here for the long weekend.

Apparently, if the market goes well it could be open for weeks to come but the problem now is there is one case of Covid-19 in Blenheim which may affect alert levels. The public were very well behaved at the Market, all wearing their masks and scanning in.

There were special conditions in place for the Market, including a set entrance and exit from Trafalgar Street with the rest of the perimeter enclosed with a fence.

Definitely the public supported the Market. The most busy places were the vegetable stalls and the Wairepo Peonie Stand with customers lining up to be served.
