Beautiful old buildings turned into cafes and restaurants. So much to choose from but all with lovely outdoor seating. The supermarket is full of fresh Tasmanian produce and products, if you are looking for something different I'm sure it will be here.

I was super excited to visit the Saturday market after hearing so many positive things, but I was left feeling disappointed. My friend and I got up early to go, so we arrived shortly after 8. Some of the stalls that I was more interested in (second hand clothing and goods) were still setting up, which was a shame as... More

I purposely arranged our 16 day itinerary to place us in Hobart for the Saturday market, which is arguably the biggest and best in the country. Best of all is the diversity of local produce & creations and getting to meet & talk with the growers & artisans, such as the man who makes beautiful wooden boxes in wonderful shapes,... More

It was a good introduction to the city, but it was nothing very impressive. I enjoyed all the food and drink like the home-brewed ginger beers, and crepes.

You cannot go to Hobart without seeing Salamanca markets; very busy, lots of different things, local stalls, foody places. Tips: find the crepe stall and taste some of the local drops from the distillers -Hobart houses some of the Australia's best whiskey makers.

We loved spending the morning at Salamnca Market! It is definitely one of the better weekend markets we've been to, and we really enjoyed browsing the wide selection of crafts and products offered. Firstly, we got great advice from our hotel staff not to drive to the markets, as parking is either hard to find or expensive. The markets was... More

One of the biggest - and one of the best! never ending range of interesting things, if somewhat repetitive... Kids will love it and plenty of bars / eateries around if you need to stop and re-charge!

I've visited Salamanca markets on a number of occasions and never get bored. Along with Eumundi markets in Queensland and Mindl Beach markets in Darwin, Salamanca makes up the market 'trinity'. You can't come to hobart and not visit Salamanca markets. Just make sure you do yourself a favour and have a local scallop pie!

I have not yet met anyone who didn't spend more than they planned or came away with more presents than they thought possible. I good time (and coffee) will be had by all. Just please put your I phone away and look at what you might miss!
