  • Great friendly atmosphere, I love seeing all the locals and their goods. I'd strongly advise bringing cash as not all stalls take card payments. A nice way to start the weekend, get some exercise and socialize.
  • A great variety of quality goods from the people who have crafted them. The woodturners are a perennial favourite, and there is a great selection of food stalls. There's often live music to lift the atmosphere, and a bouncy castle for the kids. Being set along the Riverside, there are lots of spots to sit and soak it all up.
  • Great for walks, jogs or just by the river side to see the tide go up or receding water. Love this place. Whanganui council even provides free Wi-Fi for visitors.
  • Best little market, wood fired pizza & fresh ham rolls .. beside the grand wanganui river.
  • Photos taken around the back amongst the hustle and bustle along the river. There are always interesting people to talk to and lots of different activities going on
