Spent a sunny Saturday morning strolling through the Salamanca Markets. Lots of craft including wood work and knitted items. A variety of food can be purchased. Worth a visit.

Well set out. Ample local handicrafts and produce, great energy, low wind location, great selection of gifts and creative ideas and food stalls. Thoroughly enjoyed for nearly two hours.

I have been here a couple of times and have been lucky to have gorgeous weather on both occasions. Salamanca Markets are a must if you are in Hobart on a Saturday morning! There are lot's and lot's of amazing stores to look at ranging from fresh local produce to art work. There are so many crafty and talented locals... More

I don't mind the odd market or two, but I didn't find these had anything particular special. Would be a great place to buy fresh produce if you lived in Hobart or had your own cooking facilities while travelling. Sure there were lots of things to look at and lots of quality Cottage industry stalls, but nothing much that I... More

Not a bad market, but nothing terribly outstanding from many other similar markets in the country (e.g. The Rocks Sydney). Some interesting bags available from a stall at the Battery Point end, called Peregrine Sails On, which are tote bags made from second-hand sails and would be one of the more interesting shops. (They support a local school). A pleasant... More

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...
