Description: Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia's best...
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 is the thing to do on a weekend in Hobart. Later in the morning the market is packed. I like going a little earlier to grab my coffee and wander around. The food, arts and craft stalls are great. Try all of the different local foods. The fresh vegetables and fruits are nice to get for the week too,... More

The Salamanca Markets are a great day out for locals and tourists alike. There are food stalls and craft stalls and produce to purchase. This has become a Saturday must do. Being winter we purchased UGG boots for the kids at half the price of Sydney shops. Great atmosphere , thoroughly enjoyed.

My wife and daughter loved the markets and I was impressed. Lots to look at and I left feeling I had done more than my fair share for the Tasmanian economy.

Went to the market in the late morning and really enjoyed the big variety of products sold. Great atmosphere, too! Was one of my favorite experiences in Hobart and will definitely go again if I get to visit Hobart again. Look for the "Silver Hill Fish" Camper that sells seafood sausages like a hot-dog. Also, look for the great hats... More

A must see on your visit to my beautiful home city! Lots of cool arts and crafts and good food and sweets too. A nice bit of jewellery for the wife or a beautiful bit of timber for the home are among my favourite things to get here.

Most cities have markets, but Salamanca are famous for being excellent and I don't disagree. The usual leather, arts, crafts which had the local touch but the real attraction is the food & drink.... Woodfired Scallop Pizza, Scallop Pie and the handmade donut van which without doubt was a star attraction. Was a great way to start a cold, wintery... More

Buying Tassie produce, some quality souvenirs or chilling watching the buskers - this place is always good. Enjoyed laying in the sun on the beanbags, listening to buskers and eating !

If you can't find anything to buy here you are not trying. Delicious food available. Scallops on the run. Yum breakfast to lunch. Easy to get to. Entertainment for kids and adults.

If in Hobart on a Saturday, you couldn't miss the SalamancaMarkets. One very long row of good quality market stalls. Lots of knitted products and very little cheap touristy trinkets. The day we were there, it was blowing a gale, so was tricky keeping the stalls on the ground, but loved the atmosphere and vibe. Love the hat I bought... More

Fantastic!!! Visited this market when in Tasmania in June 2015, I was very impressed with the quality of merchandise and the number of stalls. This is an outdoor market so if visiting in the winter months make sure that you wear warm clothing.
