Description:

Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia's best...

Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia's best outdoor market - proudly operated by the City of Hobart - every Saturday from 8:30am to 3:00pm at Hobart's Salamanca Place.

 

Set between graceful plane trees and the mellow sandstone facades of historic warehouses, Hobart's famous market at Salamanca Place attracts thousands of locals and visitors, every Saturday of the year.

 

They come to visit more than 300 stalls for the food and music, fresh fruit, crisp organic vegetables, hot baked spuds, the warm aroma of a coffee and croissant, buskers singing the blues, stroking a harp or strumming a lively folk song.

 

They come for breakfast, scrambled eggs and orange juice at a Salamanca cafe, then a stroll along the hundreds of stalls, meeting friendly people who make or grow what they sell.

 

Salamanca Market highlights fine Tasmanian art & craft including hand-worked glass, innovative design in Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing and bold ceramics.

 

Salamanca Market is close to historic St David's Park on the fringe of Hobart's central business district. From the market, it's a short climb up Kelly's Steps to reach the Georgian cottages and the village atmosphere of Battery Point.

 

Hobart's picturesque waterfront is also nearby - cross Salamanca lawns to the docks, where hard-working fishing boats are berthed close to cruising yachts and a square-rigger or two.

After visiting the huon valley for two weeks, we had high expectations that the Salamanca markets would have what we missed out on. Well... It is more of a commercial market than a genuine one. So 10 stalls selling the same stuff. The market should also look into making sure that everything is Tassie made as there are overseas made... More

A wide variety of stalls including many opportunities to buy Tasmanian. I have been spoilt by the Vic Markets in Melbourne but it was well worth the visit with the old storehouses as a backdrop and the wharves close by. Get there early before the big crowds.

Enjoyed listening to all the buskers and tasting all the tasty treats. Was a bit tricky pushing the stroller through the crowds at times though.

Lovely area where the market is located and lovely atmosphere but to me it was really just like every other market in Australia. Same things on sale apart from a few Tasmanian specialty stalls. Take it or leave it really.

We called in to check out the market after visiting the Cascades Female Factory. Extremely busy with passengers from two cruise ships in port. lots of local produce and usual market items for sale, variety of take-away food available the spinach and ricotta pancakes - a good choice!

It is a good market which lets you introduce most of the items of Tasmania. Shopped souvenir items to present relatives/friends. Be better if the prices of various products are more reasonable, which would definitely attract more tourists and accelerate sale.

Salamanca Market is bustling early on Saturday mornings. I arrived shortly after 8 grabbed a coffee and started to browse. Local handicrafts include woodwork, authors, painting, photography, lavender products, and more. Excellent selection of local foods to try - I had an excellent bagel from Bury Me Standing and a rosemary & lamb pie. I spent about 90 minutes at... More
