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.

Interesting market with chill vibes. Local produce, crafts and knick knacks. It's an outdoor market, so ideal when the weather is pleasant, but might not be so if it rains. We bought a couple of old school comics here! Spent about an hour in total. Battery point is nearby and should be included in your trip, if possible.

What a fabulous experience visiting the free Market. Buskers, food, tastings and stall upon stall of every description. An absolute must for visitors to Hobart on a Saturday.

A lovely market of quality arts and craft wares, fresh local fruits and vegetables and generally friendly crowd. I like the wheelchair friendly set up and the parking lot for people with disabilities which makes access a lot less tedious. Arts and craft wares are well made by locals - a great place to shop for something nice hand made... More

The Salamanca Markets are worth a visit if you are in Hobart on a Saturday morning. Lots of variety, with fresh produce, food trucks (great coffee!), local small businesses and souvenir stalls.

Bit disappointed really. Good if you want food/drinks. Not so good for gifts, artisan products etc. Some nice things but largely outweighed by a fair bit of blah.

A nice market with lots of food options and Tasmanian products. If you are only visiting Hobart there are plenty of good buys here.

Would recommend walking around the whole thing and then going back to look at things you want as stove stuff is sold by more than one stall and at different prices. Good selection of food too

Once again the markets lived up to there reputation. So much variety in the different stalls and such a wonderful atmosphere for everyone from a single person, too so many families having fun everywhere. Great atmosphere, lots of wonderful stalls with something for everyone. Clothes, shoes, amazing hats and scarves, not to mention the variety of food stalls. Good fun... More
