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

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.

It is so different between normal days and Saturday when the market is open for salamanca place. Quiet and peaceful vs lively and crowded! Nice place to go for local products. They have food, jam, honey, juice.... and many more. However parking may be challenging. Prepare a trolley if you are ready to shop. Good!

One of our purposes to come to Hobart over the weekend is because we want to go to Salamance market. A friend had been there and recommended to us. I can say that it is one of the best markets I have been to as there are so many things to see, buy, eat, play...The market itself is rather big... More

I got to the market very early - some vendors had yet to set up. It's very similar to other markets in AU that have a little something for everyone. This one has a beautiful setting if you like old architecture.

A great day out wandering around. Lots of different stalls from things to take home to eat and drink to things to wear. Some beautiful wood ware. Plenty of take away food and some good buskers.

Obviously if you are in Hobart on a Saturday, you go to the Salamanca Markets. It wasn't a bad day, although we were only there for about an hour. To crowded for my liking but I expected that. A lot of Tassie stuff but also a lot of the same. It was a glorious day weather wise, I wouldn't think... More

Frankly my preference is for farmers' markets and whilst there were a few produce stalls most were stalls full of products I've seen at other markets around the country. If you're like me push past the clothing and trinkets and head for the Tasmania produce. The honey, lavender, spirits and wood products that are artisnal Tassie. Find the guy selling... More

Always a good and famous market to visit while in Hobart. This market has organic vegetables, crafted cheeses, chocolate, wine, honey. Practically any food item one could wish for. There is a huge array of clothing ranging from t-shirts, handbags, hats and children's clothing. There is a large amount of old books and old and new photos to purchase. One... More

Salamanca Market is a great place to explore and hunt for souvenir, just relax and have an enjoyable experience. Start off with a cup of coffee which is sold on wheels, and it is real good coffee, then take a stroll down the make-shift open-air stall. Best is to walk on the right than make your way back on the... More
