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.

Coming from queensland, our clothes stalls have many tie dye cheese cloth type clothes. These at Salamanca were exciting as the clothes were knitted woollen goods. Also the crafts were often unique to tasmania. Well worth a visit.

One of the outstanding street fairs, the Salamanca market gets raves. It has food, clothing, Aussie hats, and local crafts, all of top quality. Yes, there are touristy souvenirs available, but don't be afraid to get an item or two that will stand out when you wear/eat/exhibit them back home. Not to be missed!

Was looking for unique tassie made gifts but they were hard to find. Very busy. Did enjoy the fruit and spice paella and salmon sausage which I've never seen before.

Have visited this market several times over the years. Nothing new was seen. Lack of creative crafts. Very crowded.

Surprisingly bought lots of stuff here - great selection of handbags, Tshirts and even ordered a stainless steel letter box plate (to be delivered)! The German sausage was not great - dry and bread roll was heavy. It got very crowded by midday so go early !

Very impressed that majority of goods were made in Tassie. Goods for sale were a high standard. Stall holders were friendly and helpful. There was lots of food, clothes, household goods, plants, decorations, hats.
