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.

Couple of unique stalls and some interesting food choices. Everything just seems to be horribly overpriced, really $7.50 for a sausage dog, and that is not-so-fresh breadrolls with a yummy sausage, and self help sauce. That's not a market man!!! It's called a market but it's only disguised as one and is actually a tourist trap. Looked at a hat,... More

We attended the market this morning and it was pretty average / selling cheap stuff, candles, crappy jewellery and lots of food stalls. I'd heard so much about this place and expected more. Ok for tourists wanting to waste a morning.

I have been going to the market for almost 25 years now and while it has changed a fair bit and not to the better it is still worth a visit once in a while to enjoy the ambience. A lot of the goods are not home made any more and take away food seems to take over...oh well...

This is well worth a visit if you are into markets. It has a buzzing vibe and there is a great variety of stalls. You could easily spend hours here just browsing. There is a bit of junk, but some interesting finds too. We found amazing parking for $5 all day with money going to Rotary in the grounds of... More

Really appreciated the clean toilets, shuttle buses and well organised markets - its a well oiled market machine! Great variety and numbers of stall holders, something for everyone! We spent 4hrs plus wandering the stalls. This is a quality market and sets a high benchmark!

I love a good market and the Salamanca Market is a good market. It has a great atmosphere to it, the only down side is the smell of sea food but that's only because I don't eat sea food. Other than that I love the Salamanca Market.
