    One of the best markets I have ever been to. Tidy and set out nicely. The fudge is devine! Melt in your mouth 👄 delicious. A variety of stalls and everyone was super friendly. Nearly passed on going as it was so windy and cold but really glad we went. Will be worth a visit to Wellington again just to shop closer to Christmas.

    Perfect location - go for an afternoon stroll on the waterfront and finish it off by splurging on shopping at the underground market.
