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.

Busy Saturday market with lots of stalls and a variety of foods crafts, clothes, and wine/whiskey. Two rows of stalls and it does take some time to get through the whole lot. Patience is required to navigate the sea of humanity that is also doing the same thing as you are. If the crowds get a bit much find a... More

This is the best market I've ever been to. Lots of great Tasmanian products, generally reasonably priced, and a fair amount of "tack" all part of a market. Great food and music. It's busy but well worth a visit and walking distance to Hobart waterfront. Every time we go to Tasmania we make sure we spend a Saturday in Hobart,... More

Found the market very disappointing bs over rated. We were expecting a foodie type market. But we got a junkie art and craft mishmash.

Salamanca market offers a varied mix of arts, crafts and foodie delights. The number of stalls is impressive and you can easily loose yourself for a couple of hours just meandering around. I was really impressed with the quality of wooden handicrafts on offer here. If you are in Hobart on holiday, this is the place to buy your souvenirs!... More

Lots of stalls. Delicious local produce. Some gorgeous souvenirs which I wish I would have been able to take with me. Stock up on your fruit and veg here before going to the supermarket much cheaper and tastier. Very busy.

The food stalls were varied and mostly good value. Fresh fruit and verges were first class. Lots of leather and knitted goods and a few very nice jewellery stalls.

Part of the reason we came to Hobart. Lots of locally made handcrafted goods, food and drink to sample. Very busy, but lived up to our expectations. We found plenty of options for gifts, just frustrated that some of the food items could not be carried back to Sydney.

We always find time to visit Salamanca Markets when visiting Hobart. Although always crowded, we find many interesting stalls to look at. Good for a coffee and a feed as well. A lot of local produce.
