Everything I expected the market to be. Great mix of food and local producers exhibiting and selling their wares. Market is flanked by pubs and galleries in the permanent old warehouses.

We were really looking forward to these markets as they have the reputation as being one of the best markets in Australia. I do not agree. Although it is big, the stalls repeat themselves over and over again. We also found it very expensive. The Rocks Market in the heart of Sydney is way cheaper with much more variety. We... More

Went twice to the markets and loved both times. The food was fantastic, especially the Pavlova stand.....do yourself a favour. The mocha, unbelievable. We had a great time, it's a great attraction.

The Salamanca market was a wonderful experience. There were many beautiful objects to purchase and a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere. My family and I popped into a local pub for a soft drink half way through which was lovely. The docks area nearby was also lovely.

What a delightful market! So many wonderful Tasmanians in the one place displaying and selling their artisan products! We bought wine, cheese, clothing, essential oils and had a perfect espresso coffee.

A great place to experience the Hobart culture and to get souvenirs or groceries. They sell everything from candles, handmade soaps, honey, fudge, to footwear, tulip bulbs and vegetables. Do stop to enjoy the performances on the street and grab a freshly brewed coffee and sausage bun. It's really good! :) http://www.poportion.blogspot.sg/2014/07/hobart-day-6-raisin-loaf-croissants.html

We're lucky to have lots of big markets near where we live in south-east Queensland, however the Salamanca Markets was still worth a look. Prices aren't that cheap and lots of the same products are sold in different stalls...but it was still enjoyable to wonder through. (Beautiful waterfront areas to walk along as well, just down the road.) It helped... More

Having visited many weekend markets in the Middle East and Asia, I have to say that Salamanca Market is mediocre in comparison. The items on sale are limited in its scope and mostly overpriced. Still, its a good way to while away a Saturday morning if you have nothing better to do.

Brilliant choices of homemade crafts and foods etc with some entertainment as well. Even on a really wet day we arrived at the market, people everywhere. Its worth to book a trip to Tasmania including a Saturday in your travels ,so you can find some great Australian made products.
