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.

Visited post Coles Bay, hoping to see what the fuss was about. To be honest it was just a typical large market. I guess once you see Tasmania's natural wonders and tasted it's food and drank it's wines in all its glory, it's a bit of a step down. Its nice if you are into souvenirs. We bought cheese, which...

The size is definitely impressive, but like all markets has the same stuff over and over. Once in a while you come across something different and original... which was great... a lot of walking and fighting through crowds. Be prepared to be jostled by tourists who believe standing still in a small walkway is a must.

I visited Hobart recently with friends and we had a great day at the markets. There is a lot of home made and artisan goods and plenty of food. You really shouldn't miss these markets, they are well known around Australia and deservedly so. A must see.

This is our second visit to Hobart and we make sure it always includes a Saturday so we can visit the fantastic Salamanca markets. Lamb wraps, local ice cream and a a bit of shopping made our day a treat!

We were staying at the Salamanca Inn and just a few minutes stroll to the market on Saturday morning. We were going to get there early but as we were meeting up with a friend we got there around 9.30am. It was a good sunny morning and it seemed that everyone was out and about at this time. So much...

Salamanca is a huge market run every Saturday in Hobart. generally when you wanna go its raining that's all part of the fun. Other times the sun is shinning and its a great day for people watching. Lots of activity and some Tassie produce. Unfortunately a little too over done on commercial stalls. Its a great way to spend a... More
