If you love markets, do yourself a favour and visit the Salamanca market. It's one of the best parts of Hobart and it's got something for everyone (especially if you love your produce). Take plenty of cash (I couldn't find an ATM) and give yourself plenty of time because there's lots to see (allow at least 2 hours). Live music,... More

Great selection of Tasmanian goods, lots of unique things. A mix of foods, handicrafts, local produce, jewellery etc. Only drawback was the crowds.

Salamanca Market certainly has one of the best sights and sounds in Tasmania, in my opinion. The stalls there offer a wide array of Tassie goods, genuine local products. Although it may be a touristy attraction, I find that the prices of items there reasonable, as compared to other places that we visited subsequently. Well, being one of the earliest... More

I'm a keen market-goer in my hometown of Sydney (which has several), but Salamanca has ruined me. Nothing will ever compare to this. The biggest and the best. I expected to spend a lazy hour or two but it wiped out half a day. A must-visit when in Hobart

An impromptu trip to Tassie. We didn't get many opportunities to do the "tourist thing" whilst down there. When the opportunity arose to drive to Hobart,we instantly said "Lets do a quick visit to Salamanca Markets. A very busy and vibrant market, with lots of bargains and also lots of beautiful handmade items. Plenty of food stalls to choose from..... More

I was pleasantly surprised at just how big this market was. I thought we'd be able to get through it quite quickly, but it really does require a fair amount of time, especially when there are lots of people around, which there was the day that we went. There were lots of stores here, whether it be food, woodworks, craft,... More

Everything about this place is truly amazing....the sights the sounds the smells. Just wonderful. I could spend an absolute fortune there (if I was allowed). Met some wonderful people like local authors. I've heard people raving about the scallop pies and could not go past having one. They cost $7 and are to die for. Tasmania should be very proud...

The last time I was here was 6 years ago and I was barely a teenager, all I can clearly recall was the fruit straps (bought loads this time around, and the jewelry stores (a definite must on range of cost and diversity in style/material). However this time around I almost got lost!!! There was nearly 200 stores and such... More
