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 expected a lot more local wares and produce to get that unique feeling that it wasn't 'just another market' with the same stuff as everywhere else and whilst there was some good local produce there was also a lot of the same old mass produced stuff at every markets.

We loved our time at Salamanca Market. It is always so different to the markets on the mainland, with lots of products that are from Tasmania. There is fresh produce as well and lots of live music, so do not miss it when you are in Hobart on the weekend!

A standout when visiting Hobart - amazing range of unique food and merchandise. The scallop pies are a must try - other options included lamb wraps, wallaby burritos, roast pork rolls, crepes, fresh juice and fudge. A number of distilleries were attending also along with Apple cider and honey products. Get in early as parking can be hard to come... More

We have been at many similar markets in Australia (and back in the US), but this one did have a nice variety of food, local artisans, clothes, crafts, etc. Definitely worth a look. Not sure there are any bargains, but a fun way to spend the morning nonetheless.

Perhaps the best part of this market is the location. One can see many boats in the harbour. There are some beautiful old buildings and of course a few public gardens.

Great Pubs, lots of eateries. Lots of botique beers and ciders. Belle Vue my favorite, but at $22 a pint, gets expensive. The Whaler Inn had great staff who knew a lot about what they were serving. Top spot

It is an absolute spectacle of colour, sounds, smells & tastes! It has a bewildering number & variety of stalls & vendors...something to appeal to everyone & anyone who visits. One of the few MUST visit markets. However; though ethical values are up-held by many of the stallholders...some trade on strange interpretations...whoever heard of "sustainable Palm-Oil plantations" as being good... More

Generally, a visit to Salamanca Markets is a must if in Hobart on a Saturday. Lots of variety, many genuine goods, and a variety of food at reasonable prices. Should have been smarter, thought I was getting a good deal with leather belts selling for $10. Have worn it twice and already it is coming apart. Apart from that, we... More
