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.

A bustling market with lots of local wares and produce on offer. We snagged some Coal River triple cream Brie which went down a treat. Everything for sale from jewellery, wood work and leather goods to fresh produce and local fudge. Suggest you try a hot jam donut from the donut & coffee van while you're there!

Quite a few stalls are overpriced but you know it's a boutique market really, I suppose they play on the reputation to draw the crowd in to spend the money but still it's a nice half day out. Explore the market then go for lunch at "Irish Murphy's" = a pretty nice morning and lunch. Growing number of stalls with... More

Loved the vibe of the market. Ate a scallop pie- yum! Bought a hand knitted hat for our granddaughter, tried salad dressing, had coffee and enjoyed wandering through the variety of stalls. Fun times!

There is a huge variety of food vans. I settled for some asian noodles while my partner ate some locally made bratwurst sausages. We... More

My husband and teenage children went to the Saturday Salamanca Market while we were staying in Hobart. I've been to many markets in my life, but this one would have to be one of the best (if not the best) I've ever been to. There was everything there - an amazing variety of food (including Vegan), coffee, fresh juice, arts,... More

Market is amazing, but if you have a fear of crowds or get claustrophobic this could b scary! Lots of wonderful local craftsman selling their wares. Great food available , produce and flowers. Sometimes car shows or other activities going on in the park attached.

We always make a visit to these markets when we're in Tassie, and always come away with bags full of local arts and crafts, some quite unique. It seems that increasing amounts of outsourced items are creeping into the numerous stalls which I find disappointing, but you can generally identify these without too much difficulty. The mood in the market... More

Well set out markets with a great selection of local produce. Terrific variety of foods to sample and buy and some quality items ranging from gloves to handbags to art. Very entertained by the buskers on the day. A very enjoyable few hours to spend on a Saturday morning.

Each time we visit Hobart I make sure that I go to this market. There is a great range of local produce, tasty food, jewellery, knitted and craft items - just the sort of things you would like to find at a classy market.
