ACTIVITIES & OUTINGS

Nelson's Saturday Market has a reputation that precedes it. Locals often take it for granted as a place to wander around, pick up fresh local produce for the week and catch up with friends. But it also displays the creativity of the region, with everything from bow and arrow crafters to children's toy-makers. More than 30 years after it first began as a smattering of enthusiastic sellers, it has evolved into a sprawling collection of more than 200 stalls. The market is an excellent way to start a weekend trip exploring the area — stock up on treats and organic food before heading off on an adventure. Looking for souvenirs or gifts? This is the place to find something special. The market operates rain or shine. 8am to 1pm, Montgomery Square.
