Visited over Easter weekend, lots of interesting wares and food, but very, very busy. Two stalls I wished to purchase from did not have eftpos and the queues for cash machines close to the market were long. Didn't end up buying anything.

Sunny Nelson was sunny enough when we visited. The market bring a lot of the community to the commercial core of the city. There are two or three good food stalls with attractive options to all tastes. Try the Filipino van pork. It's good.
