Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia's best outdoor market - proudly operated by the City of Hobart - every Saturday from 8:30am to 3:00pm at Hobart's Salamanca Place. Set between graceful plane trees and the mellow sandstone facades of historic warehouses, Hobart's famous market at Salamanca Place attracts thousands of locals and visitors, every Saturday of the year. They come to visit more than 300 stalls for the food and music, fresh fruit, crisp organic vegetables, hot baked spuds, the warm aroma of a coffee and croissant, buskers singing the blues, stroking a harp or strumming a lively folk song. They come for breakfast, scrambled eggs and orange juice at a Salamanca cafe, then a stroll along the hundreds of stalls, meeting friendly people who make or grow what they sell. Salamanca Market highlights fine Tasmanian art & craft including hand-worked glass, innovative design in Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing and bold ceramics. Salamanca Market is close to historic St David's Park on the fringe of Hobart's central business district. From the market, it's a short climb up Kelly's Steps to reach the Georgian cottages and the village atmosphere of Battery Point. Hobart's picturesque waterfront is also nearby - cross Salamanca lawns to the docks, where hard-working fishing boats are berthed close to cruising yachts and a square-rigger or two.

Literally hundreds of stalls, most containing local goods (food, crafts and pine/wooden goods). On the water front, with the old buildings on the other side, Lots of cafes and food stalls for breakfast and lunch. Really worth the look.

It's a good place for tourists with lots of money to spend because everything's all in one place, but a lot of what's for sale there is a lot more expensive than elsewhere.

Many of tassie's artisans and producers gather here on a Saturday morning. Friendly stall holders are happy to give tastings and samples of their produce. A nice mix of stalls. We bought wine, cheese, wood products and food. The only disappointment were the stands that sold goods of made in China but trying to pass their products if as being... More

Love a market that is full of handmade products and locals to talk to...rather than mass produced goodies - you will get a fabulous selection of locally made products and do yourself another favour and go hungry...the tempura mushrooms are fantastic.

Every time I go to Hobart I make sure to walk through the street known as Salamanca, the market is so amazing and there is so much you can see and buy and eat!! If you leave hungry then you haven't really experienced the market! Take your time to see every stall, everyone is friendly!!

I heard a lot about these markets before going to Hobart so I was looking forward to seeing the markets. We had breakfast close by then started wandering through and was done within 30min. Stalls cover tacky tourist items, fruit, locally made crafts that look the same as everyone market. Lots of the same stuff.

Salamanca Market should be the standard by which other markets are judged. This market has quality stalls that vary from quality produce, great food to excellent apparel.....a clear winner for a Saturday outing in Hobart.

An interesting morning spent in a nice part of Hobart. The market was crowded but not overly. There were a variety of stalls on offer, selling local Tasmanian produce. Also well worth a visit are the tiny eclectic art and design galleries located along the edge of the market. These sold local Tasmanian artwork, furniture and jewellery and were very... More

Second visit to the market personally, this time of year it wasn't as crowded and sadly there were less buskers, still a great vibe, fun arts and crafts and yummy food, I ate a big sausage.
