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.

If you are in Hobart you have to stop here. Specially on Saturday with a market. Many different stands.

You've been to one street market and you've been to them all.....well this is not true until you've been to Salamanca Market. Whilst it's catering for tourists there is still something for locals to everyday visitors. The Chinese tourists go crazy here as this is...More

From our hotel (Best Western Hotel, please refer to my earlier review of the hotel), we walked about 10-12 mins to reach here, passing through St. David's Park, which I will review separately. The Salamanca Market is only held on Saturdays, from 8am to 3pm....More

It could be a very interesting and classy area but it is not because of the very poor array of tacky restaurants designed for tourists.The old buildings are great and the Saturday market an interesting event but it could be better. It is designed for...More

But only on saturday from 10am to 3pm do plan well. And do not forget to saunter to the harbour too, a 5 minutes walk away. You can get a boat ride to Bruny Island from the harbour for A$30.

I love walking down along Salamanca Place to see the lovely row of sandstone buildings. This must be one of the most picturesque streets in Australia. When the market is on it can be very crowded. I think I prefer it early in the morning...More
