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.

Cold morning but markets great. Lots of interesting stalls from food to handcraft, fresh fruit and verges to some great buskers.

We went to the market twice - once straight after brekkie at about 8am, and then again at lunchtime. The morning run was relaxing and easy..hardly any people there yet, but not every stall was 100% ready (almost all were to be fair). It was...More

Great markets. Awesome vibe, plenty of awesome food, local arts and crafts. Looking around the markets properly and factoring in a bite to eat will easily take up a few hours.

The first time in Hobart and visiting Salamanca Market. We arrived early, at 8:30 and several stands were still setting up, however, it gave us the opportunity to walk around and enjoy all the stalls before the crowds began to arrive. By 10am you couldn't...More

While food is essential at a market i found every third stall was food of some description, while its a "put on your to do" list while in Hobart it is not like it used to be.

It's less than one kilometre so if you can walk that far .... Coming home with heaps of shopping, on the other hand, might be bit of a stretch but you can always get a cab!
