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.

Very busy weekend as our visit to Salamanca Market coincided with the Wooden Boat Festival which we heard only happens every two years. Worth seeing and planning to visit if you are headed for Hobart. It was a blend of food, useful household items, arts and crafts. Actually one of the better markets we've seen in Australia. It seems to... More

Famous for its market and rows of medium to high levels of Restaurants with a green belt of trees as the boundary, it is a really nice place to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere here. Very close to Hobart waterfront, Constitution Dock, Sullivan Cove, and ferry terminal to MONA, also not too far from Hobart city centre, these give... More

Salamanca market is a must experience, If you like to buy local articles- hats, bags, produce, jams, cheese etc. The atmosphere is fantastic with different musicians along the street. Dónt buy right at the beginning as you might find the same article cheaper further along. Parking is $12 per day close to the market. From the market, it's a short... More

Enjoyed our stroll around Salamanca Market. Much to see, arts and crafts, food, and more. Only open on Saturdays, not to be missed. The area where the market is located is worth a visit at other times because close to water and plenty of pubs, restaurants and action!

This is one of the best markets I have been to! On every Saturday. Would recommend to arrive early particularly during summer as the crowds can get very big and busy especially if a cruise ship is in town. Offers an array of local produce, gifts and crafts. Plenty of food stalls and coffee vendors to suit all cravings.

Located next to Constitution Dock on the waterfront of Hobart. Great location and we were looking forward to going to the markets but picked the wrong weekend to be in Hobart as everything you could think of was on and the area around Constitution Dock was jammed with people. Unfortunately for us it was so crowded it made it very... More

These markets have an exceptionally clean, professional atmosphere. There is good food, fresh produce, antiques and local hand made art. It can be very crowded but then it's all part of the atmosphere

Salamanca area is situated very close to Constitution Dock and the greater wharf area and a few minutes from the Hobart CBD. The market itself has all kinds of stores and cafes, eateries and just a great place to spend time at seeing the architecture of days ago. Inside the market is a beautiful courtyard with statutes and figurines and... More
