Get there before 9am to avoid the crowd. Not all the stalls are ready but there are enough to see. Besides, you get the pick of the bunch.

One of our favourite Tassie attractions - love all that Salamanca markets. Kids love the taste testing, cheeses, chocolate, jams, pancakes, bratwurst sausages. Plenty of Tassie flavours, wines, meet the makers. Always good quality choices for handicrafts, jewelry books, cards, woodwork and stunning photography. Hard to pick a fav although Bruny Island cheese tasting high on our return list!

The large Saturday Salamanca Market is well organized and a real pleasure. For example, smoking and dogs are not allowed, while a large map shows details of all of the stalls. Tons of locals participate and create a lovely atmosphere; civilized and fun. This was a highlight of my 6-day visit to Hobart and something worth planning into any visit.

As markets go this was one of the best. There was a great mix of souvenirs, local produce including apples cheese etc. Couldn't believe cost of tomatoes nearly $9 a kilo same price as North Qld. Loved the local woodcraft and buskers. Well worth the time.

We have fabulous markets in our home region so always curious to see how world famous markets measure up. Salamanca was great, with lots of local produce available and we tried, apples, cheese, chocolate, mead and seafood pizza. There was a fair bit of locally produced art and craft too, with a few buskers and the whole place is set... More

Hobart is a sleepy town, but Salamanca is the place to watch the world go by. Nice restaurants and coffee shops set in heritage buildings along the side of the Derwent. Markets are the same as anywhere else, basic stuff that you don't need, but interesting.

I managed to squeeze in an hour here before I had to catch my flight out. Salamanca Market is only opened on Saturdays, so if you are in town during then, you should definitely check it out What I like about the place is that there is very little repetition of products. There is a large variety of of items... More

Huge markets with lots of produce and clothing. Well worth a look. When the markets aren't on, Salamanca has lots of trendy bars and restaurants to choose from.
