Photo Gallery: Richmond Market Day


Overcast weather didn’t stop thousands of Nelsonians from heading down Queen Street for the annual Richmond Market Day.

The biggest market in the top of the South boasted everything from live music with a bit of reggae, bountiful food and plenty of stalls with everything from clothing and accessories to homewares.

Joy Behennah came all the way from Portugal for a Nelson summer and says the market is just fantastic.

“We’re having a lovely day just sitting here enjoying the food and music,” says Joy. “It’s a pity about the weather but it hasn’t stopped anyone.”

The market is open until 3 pm, Queen Street will reopen shortly after.
