You here so much about Salamanca Market but not nearly as much about what's there the other 6 days of the week. The entire square is quite enjoyable. What was a true surprise was the number of shops providing items made by local artisans or collectives. These are unique, distinctive, well made and as others have indicated a bit pricy.... More

We visited the Salamanca Market on a Saturday. It was packed with vendors, locals and visitors and was wonderful. There is a large variety of vendors with everything from bread to fruit and woodworking to wool. A "must-do" in Hobart!

My walk-through was reminiscent of being in stores on Palm Springs' Rodeo Drive. A great shopping destination for the 1%. My favorite part of the Arts Centre is the stone seating in the large open patio, where I listened to a great guitar-playing dreadlocked Anglo male singer, one of a number of highly talented local entertainers (in dreads and otherwise)...

If you want to immerse yourself in Tasmanian culture and see the talent of local artists, take a trip to the Salamanca arts centre to see sculptures, artworks, metalwork, large scale art and jewellery to name a few. Such talented artists and some pieces are for sale. Worth a trip if you love local art.
