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.

Loved this market. Especially if you were looking for local crafts and arty stuff. Great for both visitors and locals. Went here a couple of times during my stay in Hobart area.

Like other travelers have said, it is VERY crowded! We took our 2yo in a little umbrella stroller and I can't stress enough that this wasn't a good idea! It is extremely crowded and just trying to get yourself through is a mission, let along pushing a stroller through a mob of thousands. But the ambience is fantastic: street performers,... More

Saturday morning the whole of Salamanca turns into a huge market. A great place for a stroll and munch got brekkie. I tried an oyster pie. Strange! Nothing incredible but a nice market. Worth the Saturday morning walk.

Great market with so many stalls. Great to try the produce & crafts from Tasmania. You could easily spend a great couple of hours looking at everything. But there are a lot of people & so if you don't like crowds be prepared. Also don't do the coffee from the actual market stalls. That is rubbish. Grab a coffee from... More

Fun market with food, crafts, lots of wood products. I enjoyed just walking around and seeing everything. It was crowded but not any more crowded than you would expect a market to be.

Over 300 vendors offering food, drinks, clothing, books, vintage goods, handmade arts and crafts and botanical items and local produce. Street performers, music and many many people. Get there early and have fun! Never saw anything that was poorly made or of poor quality, many of the items offered are unique to Tasmania and loved finding a lady who made... More
