We had a great time at these markets. Wonderful to see a focus on well made Tasmanian products. Lots to to see and try and these would be one of the best markets I have visited!

It was the perfect day for the market, 24 degrees with the street full of stalls. It covered most of what you would expect and more. Crafts, food, drink and pleny of local produce. Love it.

We had intentionally arranged to be in Hobart on Saturday so that we could go to the Salamanca Markets. They are quite a sight with stalls stretching up the street. We spent almost four hours wandering, buying, tasting and watching. Although there was a fair number of visitors there you didn't feel crowded and there are parks nearby to sit... More

Realy liked the market. There are lots of nice coffeeshops en eateries around the market. There are a lot of different stalls and the prices were ok. It did attract a lot of tourists. Good to see there were also a lot of lical stalls.

You can't spend a Saturday in Hobart without spending a couple of hours at Salamanca Market (even for those for whom markets don't tickle their fancy). A wide array of excellent quality stalls - over 300 in number - and all a little different (and most importantly - no junk!). We bought beautiful leather wallets, hand made ceramic garden decorations,... More

I loved this market! and it met all my expectations of being one of the top tourist sites for a visit in Hobart. In fact, we purposely arranged our flights to arrive on Saturday morning to catch it. There is a wide variety of stalls selling touristy things, arts and crafts, handmade goods, hats, socks, soaps and food to name... More

If you are in Hobart on Saturday, don't forget to visit this place. It's a great place, where art, fresh produce and different cuisines go well together. The fresh produce looked exactly that ; FRESH. I was just visiting, but could not resist and bought some carrots and tomatoes. I also bought some rare seeds for my garden. The atmosphere... More

Although the market was busy and filled with stalls there was always space to move around, from 5 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. A lot of crafts, whiskey distilleries, foodstalls and unique Tasmanian arts are to be found in this popular saturday market. Around the market are also dozens of other interesting places, bookstores, art galleries, and... More

Visited these markets on a recent trip to Hobart with the family. One could truthfully say all markets are the same & so it is to a point - there are however some standouts with Salamanca. One of the first was the fact that although there were lots of visitors you could still move around freely without the constant jostling... More

Hobart's picturesque weekly market brings you a wide selection of art ware, jewelry, snack food, clothes, toys, toiletries, souvenirs, books and much else. Its a mile long walk, rather ambling, that you must be prepared for and allow plenty of browsing time. Fun to sort through the items, compare prices, check out the labels. and BUY. Not much bargaining is... More
