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.

Didn't have much expectations when I decided to visit the Salamanca Market. After all, how different can a market be? But the Salamanca Market is definitely one of a kind. Plenty of stalls selling beautiful and interesting things, with a plethora of food stalls offering Tassie specialties, like scallop pizzas and wallaby burritos, to name a few. A great place... More

Salamanca has the usual market stalls that you see elsewhere, and then adds some of the most unique and interesting stalls that are attractions on there own. Local Leathergoods, Wood turned items, Hand Knitted accessories and much more. Free samples of Tassie Whisky? Yep. Free Tassie fudge? Yep. Free sauces, jams, honey and more? Yes, all within stalls at Salamanca.... More

Salamanca Market is a MUST see /MUST do event in every visit one has to Hobart. The stalls are full of interesting things - food, produce, coffee, crafts, art etc etc plus there are many restaurants and small shops adjoining. The atmosphere is electric. The music provided by the buskers adds to the occasion. We go to Hobart 2-3 times... More

A variety of stalls selling food, clothes, crafts, fruit and vegies. Also many restaurants, small shops and art work for sale. Buskers add to the atmosphere of the market.

We did this on our first day and loved it! The markets are located by the docks and are massive! The stalls consist of a lot of wooded items (cheeseboards etc), clothing, food, the best honey ever etc It took us about 2 hours to get around everyone! Worth it!

Salamanca market is a must do if you are in Hobart on a Saturday. How often do you go to a new place and want to buy something that is made locally? This is often a difficult thing to do. Not at Salamanca because there is a huge range of locally made products. There is free entertainment. Lots of food... More
