OUT& Wellington about Underground Market PHOTOS: Dan and Michele Taylor

By Dan Taylor

In 2007, after returning from Australia and finding no weekly market other than the fruit and veggie type, Wendy Jasper teamed up with friend and work colleague Helena Tobin, and the pair determined to create a buzzing platform for the abundant creativity they saw in Wellington. After two years of hard work

setting up the business, securing a venue, and a keen selection of creative locals (many of whom are still at the market today) the Wellington Underground Market was born on the waterfront in December 2009. “You can grab some delicious ‘street food’ or an organic fair trade coffee while you browse NZ-made art, jewelry, clothing, homewares, candles and more,”

Wendy said. The Wellington Underground Market supports local artists, designers and small businesses, and is open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm on Wellington’s Waterfront under Frank Kitts Park on Jervois Quay.  For more information visit or
