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.

We arrived in Hobart on a Saturday to make sure we visited the Salamance market. It is nothing great but local vendors with overpriced items. The food is nice and fresh however also overpriced due to the popularity. It is very difficult to find parking and certain roads are blocked leading to the market parking area. You are forced to...

This is indeed a large and vibrant outdoor market like what its website say, with more than 300 stalls selling local fresh produce and handmade local products. 3-4 hours can easily fly past once you are busy shopping, watching the buskers perform and enjoying the food and beverages in this market. Definitely worthwhile to make sure you are in Hobart... More

Some people all weekend markets, be it Paddy's in Sydney, Queen Victoria in Melbourne, Wanneroo in Perth, and Salamanca in Hobart, are pretty much the same. Similar stuff is offered for sale, mostly aimed at tourists and visitors and offering little value. While this is true of some of the goods on offer at these venues, there are some products... More

Not a good place to visit when it's cold and wet and rainy. Brave stallholders were struggling to keep a smiles on their faces and trade was down. It was a dismal day weather-wise. We gave up eventually and took refuge in a restaurant where we sampled some lovely Tasmanian wines and Tasmanian food. What a shame about the weather.... More

Our visit to the Salmanca Market was on a cold, wet and windy day but we had a great time. There was so much to look at the the variety was incredible. There was plenty of shelter when it was raining and we were able to met some really nice store holders whilst sheltering from the rain. If you would... More

I have been to Hobart quite a number of times and I always make sure that the Salamanca Market is part of my trip. The atomosphere is wonderful. You can purchase anything from fresh food, to take away, to very unique Tasmanian peice. It is a wonderful way to lose yourself for several hours. It's the best market I have... More
