Salamanca markets live up to their reputation. I went specifically to pick up there local honey and handcrafted wool products. I bought an Alpaca scarf, hand made made gloves and beanie- sorted. Oh and by the way the Cherries were amazing.

Open Saturday's 8am till 3. Great clothes, crafts, gifts and fresh foods and the best fresh farmers fruit and Veges. Gets busy but well worth the effort.

Great market that shows off Tassie produce and craftsmanship. The most beautiful Tasmania Oak woodwork and metal works. Great atmosphere with lots of little food stores or cafes to go into.

Spent two hours walking up and down this celebrated market. It's not as good as the Queen Victoria Market that we adored while in Melbourne, but still we found some interesting items to purchase, like jewelry made out of old coins and Tasmanian tea. The biggest problem with the market is the lack of public parking nearby at a reasonable... More

If only all markets were this good. My criteria of good markets are that at least 80% of the market has to be 'non tat' and that you can eat for a day there. This market is just great as the stalls are so varied from whiskey tasting from a local brewery (did that) to locally make crafts (bought some... More

I have always bought something at Salamanca Markets, yes there are shoddy stalls as there are at all markets, just give them a miss! The fruit, veg and flowers are great quality. Wooden items are priced well compared with shops. Wouldn't miss them when visiting Hobart.

Lots of stalls - foods, handmade, homemade, clothes, toys, fresh produce etc. Something for everyone. You can even get a Wallaby burrito!

Whilst a bit on the pricey side Salamanca never fails to please .. but do be mindful of some goods being made in China so not always the local produce as presented .. but no matter .. as always we ate our way around the markets and had a browse and bought a few knick-knacky bits .. plus beanies and...

This is just an outstanding market! This is not a flea market or a market of knock off goods, it has dozens of stalls selling high quality items. Located at the Salamanca Place which is a 5 min walk from the warf. The market is very large and if you're attending for the first time (as I was), I'd suggest... More

Visiting Hobart for the first time everyone says 'Salamanca Market is a must see'. Well I've seen it and it's overrated. The only thing that differentiates this market from others is its size. Yes, there are some nice stalls selling local produce, some stalls selling overpriced goods, stalls selling things that when you take them home as a tourist they... More
