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.

Salamanca Market is a place we try to visit every time we are in Hobart. It is huge, with a great array of hand crafted goods, clothing and lots of fresh tassie produce. It is the equal of any market in the world!

The Marketplace. Blocks of booths selling everything from didgeridoos to books to art to crafts to clothing. And people. LOTS of people. And energy. LOTS of energy. If you don't like crowds this may not be for you. But if you like crowds or are willing to put up with them for some easy and fun cruise-by shopping, this is... More

There is nothing worth more of your time in Hobart than spending your Saturday wandering around the stalls at the Salamanca Market. Soaking up the atmosphere and eating the food. The shopping can get quite expensive and it can get a bit crowded. It is still a must see though.

Salamanca market is a great place to go on Saturday. There are a number of stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables of exceptional quality. Also a wide variety of food and drinks are available as well as many local handmade items. It does get very busy so be patient.

It can get pretty crowded but that's part of a morning market, there are food, music, arts, clothings, shoes etc, you name it they have it here, and some products are unique as well. It can be a place to buy things or just for sightseeing.

A vibrant and lovely pocket of Hobart. Restaurants and bars are sensational. Easy walking access from major hotels and Hobart city centre. Plenty to do and see.

If your in Hobart on a Saturday the market is worth a walk round,it can get abit crowded but there's plenty to have a look at,some of the items are on the dear side but you are in Tasmania where the cost of living is high.

What better way to idle away a Saturday than wandering around the Salamanca market. A fantastic array of Tasmanian goods, and the stallholders are almost all wonderful, friendly people.

Large Saturday markets which are heaving with visitors. We were lucky to have lovely weather and explore the stalls of lots of local Tassie produce. There is a lot of art & craft stores, a lot of the items are pretty similar to what you see at other markets. I had expected more fresh food options, but it was still... More
