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.

I have visited Salamanca many times and it never disappoints! Worth making sure you are in Hobart on a Saturday so you can visit! The only downer for me is that many woodworking stores claim they have made their products however 100m away at another stall someone else is making identical products with the same stickers, a little suss but...

This is easily the best outdoor market in Australia. We are from Melbourne and could not wait to get home to try all the goodies we bought. Most items are handmade not mass produced and it shows in the quality. Chocolates, sauces, honey, gin, cosmetics, homewares,cheese, takeaway food etc, all made in Tassie. Only on Saturdays, do not miss.

Market has great reputation and deserves it. Lots of stalls of different types. Well spaced. Variety of live music. Would not say the prices are cheap and could be viewed as a tourist price trap

The Salamanca Markets are on the itinerary for any trip I make to Tasmania. It is hard to compare the atmosphere, the local produce, the tasty food and the quality & range of goods with anywhere else. The local musicians are always fantastic, too. Favourite market experiences are a scallop pie, Amanda Jammm's Pear & Vanilla jam & the assortment... More

On a warm Saturday morning the Salamanca markets were typically busy but not uncomfortably so. There were loads of hand crafted products to see, many showcasing the local Tassie produce. A great place to find that special Tassie momento or to have some yummy food.

The Salamanca Markets are the best markets in Australia. There is something for everyone. 300 plus stalls - Antiques, clothing, accessories, art, crafts, jewellery, photography, food, coffee, you name it....it is here! Huge crowds gather here however that is part of the experience. The live music (buskers) enhance the feel of the place. Wander around or people watch from one... More

With parking nearby limited to an hour our visit was cut short. Lots of people. Plenty of food stalls. Tasmanian produce. As with most markets, prices were just a little too dear to encourage us to purchase anything.
