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.

lots of local Gin
Apr. 2021
Go early, otherwise you will likely have a que to wait in as they attempt to manage numbers during covid

Lots of the usual truck food, variety of handy crafts, and surprisingly, loads of Gin and local distillery tastings and sales

Even in the middle of winter on a frosty morning this is a must do. The variety of stalls sprinkled with diverse food outlets is a great mix and ideal for strolling along at an easy pace.

Market by the waterside

Salamanca Market is a must-do if you are in Hobart. The market is held every Saturday. Products range from farmers' produce to handicrafts. There are numerous stalls vieing to attract the attention of buyers. If you are looking for souvenirs, you will have lots of choice.

On a Saturday it’s a must do to pop into the markets here! There is so much here from food to even lovely unique gifts. We bought some delicious fudge and a wide range of other different foods to try. The atmosphere is very comfortable and just stunning with the historic buildings nearby. It was not so busy when we went which was great, park further away in back streets as it’s free parking on Saturday and bring your own bag to store products!

Nothing out of the ordinary
May 2021
Tortuous to get to and that made the whole experience even more disappointing. If you wanted to buy homemade gin, carved wood or woollen clothes/accessories then you have a vast array to choose from. Other than that the offerings were like any other market in any other town - imported, cheap and very unappealing. The handmade items were exceptionally overpriced and not all that varied in their offerings.

A must do.
Jul. 2021
Such a great market experience, a wide variety of stalls and products and excellent quality. Also having nice local pubs to have a drink and meal close by is just the best.

Can spend many hours there just give yourself enough time to explore the area and Hobart's waterfront area.

Another Market
Jun. 2021
Having been to more markets than what we can remember Asia, middle east, Europe, & UK we found this just another which lacked that stand out look, nice if you have nothing else to do on a cold, sunny morning in Hobart as in previous comments made we to found it same o'l" things (a lot of hats) for some local reason?? & price's to high for what was on offer no bargains here, we didn't stay long went to the dock area for coffee,

Disappointing
Jul. 2021
Was so excited to visit these markets as there is so much hype around them. And I love a good market.
I was disappointed. A lot of the same stalls ie pottery, food trucks, jewellery ...
I was hoping for more of a local feel ie: soaps, local produce, hand made trinkets, paintings and/or artists, handmade jewellery, stainless glass.... a few different things but not enough for me. The stalls were similar to markets on the main land. Enjoyed the people watching and music. So defiantly worth a look for a coffee and people watch.

Great market
Jul. 2021 • Family
Excellent Saturday morning out. I would say go a bit later not first thing - head there at 11-ish … crowds a tiny bit thinner - still a lot to see and buy. And smaller queues for coffee and snacks and distillery tastings !! Worth a visit !

London Paris robe, Hobart and Salamanca market on a Saturday is like latte and cake. A cold day crowd was down a little but great atmosphere with stalls and shoppers. Always enjoy the party. Back soon. Cheers beachy
