There were a few dozen stalls here in July. I liked browsing and found some neat art stalls where I bought several small pictures.

There are so many different stalls here that sell everything from jewellery to planter boxes and they change regularly. There are also food stalls that provide some great tucker.

If you're in Wellington the coolest little capital in the world don't miss out on this nice underground market. Lots of arts and crafts and small businesses making a living. Nice New Zealand made merchandise. Right at the beautiful waterfront of Wellington.

Thanks for your review! For a larger number of stalls check out our biggest markets of the year, The Underground Market Showcase Weekends (Sept/Oct) or The Wellington Christmas Markets (December).

This market has some very nice local arts and crafts, some quite refined and unusual, that can make good gifts for friends back home. It isn't huge though and the food is somewhat average. It is cold in there! Its nice to pop in if...More

Popped by on Saturday to have a look, lots of neat stalls around full of crafted items, though nothing that really grabbed my fancy unfortunately! Maybe next time. Some great food options around, especially if you're after something cheap and quick. I got a veggie...More

Sounds like a lovely day, great choice of a The Little Chilean Kitchen empanada! Thanks for your review.

Aside from interesting wares for sale, they have an amazing range of food trucks selling everything from Argentinian to Chinese food. This is definitely a nice place to stop in if the weather goes sour!

Thanks for reviewing us. It's definitely a good spot to hide from that famous Wellington wind!

This was a great little market for the quirky and home made. Not big but interesting stalls and very reasonable prices.
