Big Bike Tune Up
Wednesday 11th March 2015
Nelson Farmers Market, Morrison Square
Does a flat tyre, squeaky chain or worn out brake mean your bike has taken up residence in the shed? Now is the time to get your bike out and come to one of our free Big Bike Tune Ups at the Nelson Farmers Market on Wednesday the 11 March from 11-2pm in Morrison Square. The mechanics will give the bikes a free, quick maintenance check and tune up to make sure your bike is safe, road-worthy and fits you. If the work required is a more than a tune up they’ll advise on what’s involved and contacts for the local bike shops.

• The Freshest fresh picked food for the most nutrition per mouthful you can buy.
To create a Nelson marketplace for the sale of fresh, nutritious, locally grown produce that is sold directly to the consumer, normally by local growers.
• To provide an attractive European-style market venue in a central square around a cafe where growers and shoppers are able to communicate directly with one another.
• To encourage this 'one on one' connection as it gives feedback to the growers who are then able to adapt their production to the special needs of the buying public.
• To work closely with local producers of high quality fruits, vegetables and other food items, nearby communities, non-profits and charities, for the enrichment of all our lives.
We are looking for more stallholders!
