The Arts Centre Weekend Market is a wonderful place to eat and look at the craft stalls in the old Victorian part of the city. It is a great warm day experience for all ages and often there is entertainment and buskers to thrill. The Market is a very relaxing time after viewing the Botanic Gardens or touring the central...

The arts centre was decimated during the earthquake so this market has been set up across the road from the old site. A pale comparison to its former self but sill worth a visit until the arts centre is rebuilt.

I have always loved the market in christchurch and it is worth "doing". Lots to see and eat and buy presents to take home. Better when the sun shines but good in any weather.

One of the best places to be in Christchurch on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There are generally buskers on the streets which are always very entertaining - just be careful if you're an innocent bystander walking past - they might comment on you to the wee crowd that is watching them! All for laughs. There are little stalls out... More
