Nelson Market

I do love going to markets especially when on holidays. Recently I made a very brief visit to the Nelson Saturday Market whilst in New Zealand.

I love the colourful things


Cool shell poppies


The colourful people

And the local delicacies on offer.

And that kids hair!



Some fudge may have died in the making of this post


Saturday Snapshot, is a wonderful weekly meme from Alyce  at home with books

No trip to NZ is complete without the whitebait!

Louise said...

Possibly, but I'm not really a white bait fan. I'd give mussel sausages a go though. Next time perhaps.

The shell flowers are beautiful. How clever!

Sometimes a little fudge has to die for the sake of writing. It's okay.

this does look like a fun market-and no I could not find the fleur de caramel sel-another friend wanted it and I looked and looked-that said I did not return to the market at Richard Lenoir on Sunday morning-I have been there many times before so that may have been the market where I purchased it.

I know it was in Paris at a market- and I remember the markets I visited on the trip where I got it-when I returned looking that was the one market I missed.

okay I am not sure if I published my comment so please excuse if this is a duplicate. I may have purchased the caramel fleur de sel at the R. Lenoir market on Sunday at the bastille. I went looking for it for a friend and could not find it-that was the one market I did not return to.

What great cheerful shots - the colorful poppies and the plates make me smile.
But not as broadly as your fudge comment does.

I spy a Pearly Queen. I wonder if she is an Eastender from London?

I love the poppies - but the Pearly Queen is a long way from Lonfon! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/GVIbC

I love those shell poppies. How unique!

Ginx Craft said...

The shell flowers are lovely, but I am not sure about mussel sausage.

Alyce said...

I love all of the bright colors, and the kid's hair is funky! I'd pass on most of the food other than the fudge.

Jess - A Book Hoarder said...

Oh my gosh I want to set a table with those dishes and the poppies! And then serve the fudge.

Irene said...

So glad you killed that fudge, it is such a nuisance.

So nice to see color! I'm eagerly awaiting spring up north and the return of brightness.
