Whenever travelling to Hobart, make sure you set some time aside to wander the magnificent Salamanca markets on Saturday mornings. The food, the music, the stalls and of course the people are a rich tapestry of Tasmianian life. Plenty of local produce to consume. Love it

Worth going to the market on a Saturday as it was filled with stalls and people. It was more of a sightseeing trip, rather than shopping as there were really quite a variety of things being sold there that you can take photographs of.

From beautiful hand turned wood to master crafted pewter, Tasmanian wines, cheeses, whiskey and home grown produce, leather goods and amazing chocolate covered truffles ........ Everything you could want from a market is here in Salamanca. Loved it!

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
