First off I was dissapointed when arrived. I had read all the reviews and was so excited. There are markets in NSW that have it over these markets times 100. It isnt that big and was mainly aimed at food. They are not cheap markets, same price as shops if not more expensive. We only managed to spend an hour... More

Really enjoyed this market. Went with my mum and we both found so much to look at, taste and of course buy. There is some sublime food to be eaten and everyone is so friendly. Highly recommend.

Where I am from, a market is a place that has lost of Chinese $2 shops and tacky clothes and souvenirs. This was a traditional market full of Tasmanian made goods and produce. Do yourself a favour and turn up hungry. There are many interesting food choices there. I spent a couple of hours there. Most stalls are run by... More

This market is a must if you are in Hobart on a Saturday morning. Don't think about it, just make sure you get there.

Hobart's Saturday market in Salamanca Place must be one of the world's largest temporary markets. From around 8am on Saturday morning, hundreds of stalls sell baked goods, local fresh produce including organic products, soaps, honey, jams, olive oil, cheeses, colourful woollen socks, jewellery, woodcrafts, leather crafts, toys, antiques, hot food, coffee, seeds, plants, cut flowers...and more!! Shops, galleries, restaurants and... More

The Salamanca Markets on a Saturday in Hobart rocks! Getting there early will give you space and room to move about before the rest of the city and visitors arrive.... however in the crowd is the atmosphere. Lots of variety and local handmade produce & products, lots of different cuisines to choose from also. Highly recommend the visit - a... More

What a terrific way to spend a Saturday in Hobart. Get up early, shop til you drop, rest at the waters edge or on a bench seat in the park, shop some more, then end the afternoon at a local bar for Happy Hour cheap drinks and half priced oysters. The Salamanca Market on Hobart's waterfront is in my opinion... More

Found the markets a great place to stroll around for the morning, interesting array of things, plenty of food stalls. Products not cheap, not a must do in my book but worth a look and a bite to eat. A glimpse into the produce of Tasmania.

Or just browsing. It's great fun at this market. And you'll find all kinds of quirky stalls, lots of fresh produce to take home with you. Fashion, jewellery loads of places to eat whilst you have a break from the shops. Free wheelchair available on site.
