About
Salamanca Market is one of Australia’s most vibrant and loved outdoor markets and is located at historic Salamanca Place, next to the Hobart waterfront. With over 300 stallholders, it’s an experience that’s hard to beat. While COVID-19 restrictions are in place, a smaller interim market will be held instead of the full Salamanca Market. Tasmania’s Own Market is a selection of your favourite Salamanca Market stallholders and is held each Saturday from 8.30 am to 3 pm. Our new look market consists of around 220 stallholders representing artisans, designers and producers - it’s as Tasmanian as we can make it. You will find fresh produce from local growers, hot coffee and delicious breakfast and lunch options to enjoy, lots of gift ideas and plenty of handmade products. Salamanca Market will return in full as soon as state government conditions allow.

    Local Tasmanian at its best
    Wide selection of products from local Tasmanian producers and artists. Great to be able to potter around. Unfortunately a cruise ship was in the day we went so it became overcrowded later in the morning but we’ll worth a visit

    Excellent Quality
    A wonderful morning spent at the markets. A really friendly vibe overall. Lots of people; friendly helpful stall holders; no-one sleezy; everyone happy. The quality on every single stall was very high. Very little double up of products. Lots of locally made products. Surprisingly, not much organic fruit and veggies. The local fruit was delicious. Great location. Loved it. Ran into a few people we knew

    Salamanca Markets - A must do !
    Great Saturday morning activity. An abundant choice of Foods including: home made breads, pastries, cakes, jams, honeys etc…There are outdoor grills cooking away bacon & egg, sausages, seafood delicacies and an extensive range of international cuisine. Nice giftware items but my favourite was the boutique alcohol suppliers ranging from Gin, port & schnapps. We enjoyed the outdoor vibe and got to listen to a local busker named Jed Appleton

    Stalls and smells and all you need
    We had a great time for our almost-full day at the markets. My wife and I and the late teens (one is 20 - near enough) found things to do together and heaps to do on our own, following our individual interests. The market is big, especially by the standards of rural farmer's markets we are used to. However, it is dense and doesn't sprawl. We could have spent even more time there, too.

    A market for people who love markets
    I spent a leisurely few hours absorbing the sights, sounds and smells of this unique market and it's 300 or so stalls. Running the length of Salamanca place there is a diverse range of items for sale with a distinctly Tasmanian feel. I'm told it's on rain hail or shine, every Saturday. Take your appetite with you and try some of the many delicacies while you listen to live music absorb the atmosphere. It's the place for local produce like cheeses, whisky, wines, berries, nuts, dried meats and even saffron. I spent far more than I'd planned but hey, YOLO! While you're there, visit Kelly's steps.

    Market fun
    Huge variety of high quality stalls showcasing the many talents of Tasmanians. Plenty to see and buy although a bit over priced. Woollen gloves $35 and same at tourist info shop were $26 so be aware of your prices and value. Not all products were Australian. A fun and interesting way to spend a Saturday. Be early if you don't like crowds!

    Excellent
    The market opens on Saturdays only. We spent 4 hours & visited almost all temporary stalls. We enjoyed oysters, sausage roll, crepe, Afghanistan bolani, creme brulee. All were delicious with reasonable price.

    Great place to buy Tasmanian products
    Salamanca Market occurs every Sat and it was packed with stalls and people. In late April there were 4 rows of stalls of food, alcohol products, jewelry, leather goods, pottery, household items, and clothing. Sparse seating were located thought the market. We purchased a beautiful piece of jewelry with an Australian opal from Essey’s Opals, a foldable pack back, a gorgeous piece of huon pine wood, fudge and some lunch. We spend about 3 hours looking at the wonderful Tasmanian products that were available here.

    Big, noisy and a lot of crafts - worth a visit - maybe two
    A big market with a lot of people and a multitude of stalls. Parking is a bit of a problem if you arrive late. There's a lot of craft stalls - many of which have the same stuff. Wandered around an had a good look -bought a few books that I'd been looking for but nothing really caught our attention. Chatted to a few stall holders and that was worthwhile. Definitely worth a visit but would imagine the sameness would become old hat after a couple of visits

    Bruny Island Oysters the Best

This is a must do just for the experience. I am not really a market person and found most of the products really expensive but it is popular and good to tick off your must do list. I love Hobart so it is nice to experience all it has to offer

Great market for fresh vegetables, fruits, and meats. Prices are reasonable, the staff is great. Open till 7pm usually. Location is right by the wharves and piers.

Blown away by this market. Surpassed all expectations in terms of craft and quality of food.

We particularly adored the oysters, scallop pies and sticks and bratwurst. Souvenirs are very reasonably priced compared to other areas and originality was impressive.

Can’t wait to return.

Great place for a visit. Bustling and full of stalls selling almost anything it seems. Also lots of food stalls. Set in a very nice part of town with lots of pubs and restaurants close by. Would definitely recommend for a visit if you are here on a Saturday. Enjoyable experience.

It was great! So many vendors offering so many things: leather & wood products; clothes, Aussie leather hats, honey, some many food vendors (best one was scallops & yam on a skewer), gin distilleries (many many options), veggies, jewelry.
It’s packed earlier in the day but thins out - a bit.
The big market is only on Saturday so plan accordingly.

A must visit when in Hobart - local crafts - scallop pies - enjoyable - always come away with a purchase to bring home.
Be prepared to move slowly as the crowd tends to just stop without warning

We loved the Salamanca Markets, so much to see.
Initially my friend wasn't keen on staying too long but once we for there, we had to go up and down and see every stall.
Heaps of gin tastings to be had, watch out new players. We had forgotten our favourites when we went back to purchase and had to try again 🤣
Oh, and I got my curried scallop pie....yummo
