Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of Australia's best...

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.

We were staying at the Salamanca Inn and just a few minutes stroll to the market on Saturday morning. We were going to get there early but as we were meeting up with a friend we got there around 9.30am. It was a good sunny morning and it seemed that everyone was out and about at this time. So much...

So many great stalls. Would have loved to have spent more time and money but was limited by my luggage allowance. This is a great market with lots of unique, local products. Very little commercial junk, like a lot of markets - a very charming place to go, even if you just look around

Free sauces, jams, honey..." now add Gins (cheaper than at the distillery), an... More

The Salamanca Saturday Market is a unique experience which is a must do for every tourist while in Hobart. You can have a cup of coffee or even a full breakfast at one of the nearby cafes early in the morning and enjoy the variety of stands at the market. Many organic or home grown products are on display as... More

We go to the markets each time we attend Tasmania. It is very spread out and a lot of walking required. It offers a variety of goods for most requirements and a wide array of foods and wines available

If you can't find it at Salamanca markets you didn't look hard enough!! Lots of local produce and products. Be prepared for the crowds but always worth a wander.
