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.

Such a diverse range of goods, many local hand made items, many stalls selling local food items and wines. The usual range of souvenir rubbish, but proportionally not as much as say Freo Market which is full of crap. The market is always busy so...More

It is touristy but fun. All you ever wanted to know about Tasmanian honey can be learned at this market. It is mostly for tourists but friendly and fun.

Saturday morning at Salamanca Markets is always an experience worth having. Some good food to eat and purchases to be made but, even without either, it's just great wandering among the stalls and crowds. Even better when you have the backdrop of a snow-covered Mount...More

It's less than one kilometre so if you can walk that far .... Coming home with heaps of shopping, on the other hand, might be bit of a stretch but you can always get a cab!
