Love coming here whenever we are in Wellington, this time round we found a lot of our Christmas presents for family, some amazing Art and Jewellery can be found at the underground market, definitely a must when ever you come to Wellington.

Raced in here to get out of the rain, I spent sometime in here looking at all the little trinkets and bits and bobs. Something different with great coffee near by.

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.
