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.

We went to the Salamanca Markets on a weekend when there was a cruise ship in port. It was very crowded, so it was hard to have a leisurely look around at all the stalls. We brought some great big cherries...$12 a kilo, and they were great eating.

If your not in Hobart on a Saturday don't be disappointed. Salamanca is still worth a visit. There are lots of places to eat or sit in the sun & enjoy a coffee. Many small shops selling locally made handicrafts as well as imported wares. A flat walk, no crowds & plenty of opportunity to dawdle & window shop. An... More

The market is really no different to may other markets. There are however lots of very talented people making things. If you are in the area its worth a visit, but nothing special.

A lively and colourful market with plenty of variety in stalls. Lovely fresh food, fruits and vegetables as well as clothes, hats, linen, leather, gardening gear and flea market style stalls to name a few.Musical background music from the various buskers and a great atmosphere for wandering around on a Saturday morning. Some of my favourite stalls were not there... More

If you want to see about 20+ stalls for each type of items then this is the place to go. We were told this market had something for everybody, and I was also told it was a great place to find antique and period collectables, but found only two stalls with those things, and nothing worthwhile and nothing priced reasonably,...

We visited the Salamanca Market and were surprised at the size... there are so many great stalls though we did notice a lot of repetition in goods. The day we visited was really busy though what we didn't know at the time was that there was a wooden boat festival just across the road and this likely contributed. Parking was... More

What a spectacular market in a wonderful setting. The best part is there are so many vendors who actually make their own goods and crafts. My highlight was the oysters being shucked in front of you, very tasty . This market is quiet special.

We found the market to be a wonderful morning of wandering. There were stalls of all sorts, a wide variety to interest the 1st time traveller to Tasmania. That said, I did not see much that would hold my interest for a return visit unless I was accompanying other 1st time tassie travellers.
