They have a deli and prices are reasonable and had everything we needed for a picnic on the beach. They should stock a little bit more non-California wine in the lower price points (yes, despite being in California). The drip coffee at the front wasn't very good, I don't suggest you pickup a quick cup on your way out.

You don't have a lot of choice within downtown Carmel if you don't want to visit the nearby out of town supermarket for essentials but a little disappointed in choices and the ridiculous prices of some items in comparison to elsewhere. Taking advantage I think of the limited market. Shame because the food in the deli part looked really good.... More

This is our first stop when we get to Carmel. It is conveniently located a few feet from where we stay! It has everything you need to stock up during your stay!

Before going on the 17 mile drive, stop at Nielsen's Market and pick up everything you need for a fun, romantic picnic. Also buy a few specialty items to take to friends at home (their own brand of items).

If you want to get some sandwiches maid for your trip to the beach or elsewhere, this is the deli to come to. There is also a nice selection of other food, beer, wine, and spirits.

We stumbled upon Nielsen Bros Market and Deli when we were exploring Carmel. We were attracted by the smell of the food they were cooking on the grill in front of the store. They had everything from hot dogs to ribs. The store itself is very quaint and well stocked. We purchased an entire lunch to enjoy out on their... More

This is a nice market for those days you'd rather pick up a picnic lunch instead of eating at one of the local restaurants. We did and it was a nice change.

We've been impressed by American kindness and generosity, but not at Nielsen Bros. All the staff lacked basic social skills and in one case was straight up rude. The selection of food was good, and the sandwich ordering system was a good idea. The salads were excellent, which is why we gave it 2 stars and not 1.
