“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Expected a wonderful craft market but found it full of cheap imported rubbish...a few things of interest but most things you would find the the $2 junk shops

“Handmade goodies.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Saturdays is market day in Salamanca Place, Hobart. Lots of lovely handmade arts and crafts. It is a large market set in an area that has many restaurants, cafes and galleries. The design market at MONA on Saturday is lovely too. The schedule for which day it falls on changes with the seasons, so check to make sure you don't miss it. It is possible to do both in one day, as the MONA ferry stop on the Brooke St quay is only 10 minutes walk away from Salamanca. The $20 return fare per person is a fair price to pay for a picturesque journey on the river, approx thirty minutes. Hobart has a thriving art community and there are many cool shops and galleries in the town, that are fun to visit.

“Interesting shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

It was enjoyable to walk around the centre. We visited A Common Ground store owned by Matt Evans from A Gourmet Farmer on SBS. Good selection of cheese available for tastings. Found some books at the second hand book store. The plaza area is great for kids to run around.

“Far better then most city markets these days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

So pleased to see at least 90% of stalls are local well made either craft or food . So many city markets these days are just containers of ""imported goods""you can purchase any city in any country. The variety was amazing.
