I knew the market was on Saturdays, but since had half a day before flying out of Hobart, I thought Salamanca Place would still be worth visiting. I was wrong - parking was ridiculously overpriced, there are hardly any shops (permanent shops), the place was desserted. We ended up leaving before the meter even ran out.

Saturday morning, lots of stalls, lots of people, what could be better? I bought a wonderful Kashmiri embroidered coat, and there were many different stalls with a lot of interesting things, often homemade...

A must visit in Hobart, lots of sprawling stalls, jewellery and crafts, live music and tasty produce. A nice Saturday morning spent browsing. There are some nice cafés to grab some brunch too. Although some stalls are overpriced, you can find some pretty decent bargains too.

I love this market. The items are so unique and so Tasmanian. I could have spent a fortune here if only my budget would have allowed. There is hardly any of the cheap plastic rubbish that you find at so many other markets around the country. The location of the market is also beautiful. It is right by the water... More

Last visit 15 years ago and I think the variety of stalls is less, but then it was a long time between. Impressed with the number of stalls despite the winter weather. Plenty of local goods, though, especially knits and honey. A good selection of interesting food stalls too. A must see for the pleasant atmostphere in a splendid location.... More

Having been to the market for the first time last January I was a bit disappointed when I returned last week. Perhaps it is just a matter of summer v winter but this time there seemed far fewer stalls with many being duplicates of each other. It is uniqueness which makes for a good market but much of that was... More

Salamanca market is fun to walk around on a Saturday morning and you get a chance to have a look at a whole array of locally produced items without feeling the hassle to buy anything that you get at other markets. The selection of items on sale at the stalls is wide and varied and the vast majority is of... More

Visited whilst in Hobart for the day on a cruise, and lucky enough that it was a Saturday morning. Markets are great for all type of gifts, etc and easy walk from Cruise Terminal.

Overall I was a little disappointed with the market, over the years the choice of good for sale has narrowed somewhat. A number of stalls offering basically the same thing. The reputation of the market has built over many years but now in my opinion is bigger than the actual market. It's a good place to go but not as... More

If you are in Hobart don´t miss the Salamanca Market every Saturday Morning. You can shop a lot of interesting things there, for example food, clothes, cds, kitchenware, handcrafted jewellery or picures. Enjoy a coffee and the nice atmosphere. Tipp: Don´t go too late before it will be very crowded.
