Description:

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.

Probably the best markets anywhere in Australia. Lots of variety, arts, crafts, flowers, produce, drink & food stalls, buskers. We parked at the Salamanca Square car park for $12.00 for the day as my husband can't walk far. A must do if in Hobart.

Only opened on Saturdays, so many stalls to choose from, with fresh produce and an array of local handiwork. You can easily spend hours wandering through this market.

This was one of the highlights of our day, the Salamanca Market. It hosts a wide array of products that are made in Tasmania. From fresh produce to jewelry, name it they've got it.

Great market place full of local products like vegetables, wine, gin and whisky, art like handmade jewelry, woodwork, glass art and not the least food - great hot dogs, wraps, scallop pies and much much more. A MUST visit when in Hobart on a Saturday. Also lots of local music and song.

Visited the Saturday market this past Saturday with my husband--lots to see (and eat!). Buskers, tattoos and local choirs along with Good variety of items from home made chocolate to clothing to fossils (!). A bit pricy but window shopping is free :)

Wow. These are amazing. Cld hv spent entire salary here. So worth visit. Highlight of trip. Great food choices, stunning live acts who were captivating to listen to and great produce and stall choices. Something for everyone. Hot tip...try the hot spiced apple from the juice guy at the far end. Insane on a cold morning.

Saturday morning very well spent You could spend hrs and hrs and hrs here Over 300 stalls and all selling quality goods No cheap crap here like most weekend markets and all so very friendly. The trip to Hobart is worth it just for this market..........because to be honest Hobart doesn't have much else going for it !!!

We went on a slightly cold weekend in April but we're pleasantly surprised! Large market, pretty busy but really fun! Lots of different stalls from alcohol to glass penguins, tea to wooden cockatoos! It really had something for everyone. We were pleased at the amount of places taking card and refreshments available. We wandered for about 2 hours, parking is... More
