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.

Over the 6 years we have enjoyed taking visitors to Salamanca Market on a Saturday morning. The food available is very good and of reasonable value for money. I have bought a few second hand books over the years but these have been expensive. My wife has bought some very expensive hand made soap here too but in actual fact... More

From the chocolate Crossaints as you enter to the handmade fudge as you walk along there is a taste of everything that is the best of Tasmania at the market . But that's not all - items from Tasmanian woods such as huon pines , textiles , wools . We bought some handmade carved animals made out of the Huon... More

Wonderful market with plenty of things to look at, buy and eat! Most of the goods are produced locally and are of high quality. Definitely a must go when you're in Hobart on a Saturday morning.

This is one of the nicest markets with a great choice of food and merchandise. The atmosphere is wonderful, even though there are a lot of people enjoying themselves there is a calm and peaceful ambiance.

Salamanca Markets are held every Saturday and cater to all tastes. A wide variety of stalls and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Several street performers are located throughout the area add to the overall ambience and lots of food and wine stalls offer sample tastings of their products. Set amongst the historic buildings this is a great day of leisurely shopping... More

Got there at 8:30 when it opened and it was an easy walk around the stalls... We picked up a chopping board, some veggies for the evening, souvenirs and loved the entertainment. Something for everyone here and well set up. We had no trouble finding street parking and wished we were staying longer to sample more of the local produce!... More
