Salamanca Market, Hobart

4.3
Each Saturday, Salamanca Market comes to life with dozens of stalls selling the region's best food, crafts, and souvenirs. Situated in front of large sandstone warehouses that have been converted into a maze of craftspeople's shops and restaurants, the market has been a major tourist attraction for decades. It's also a popular weekend meeting place for local families with kids. The warehouses were built in the 19th century to service the whaling industry. Today the market sells a variety of locally made products at inexpensive prices. This sprawling historic district offers opportunities to shop for gifts, drop by popular eateries, and visit the area's art galleries, which exhibit and sell works by local artists.

  • One of the best markets i have been to in Australia and definitely in my top 5 markets i have been to around the world. The locals of Tasmania are so welcoming and extremely friendly. Their talents in arts and crafts, brewing, baking, fresh food are by far the best in Australia. Totally recommend purchasing some truffles, gin, fresh fruit and souvenirs to take home.. I purchased a few treasures that I will forever.
  • Really lovely markets. Nice that you can taste test. Buying food is expensive for small portions. Better to eat at one of the local pubs - they have good lunch specials. Sunday farmers market is better.
  • Nice to see so many locals with their little market stalls but definitely a lot of the same types of businesses. Candles, coffee, jam etc. Wasn’t amazing but still a nice place to visit on a Saturday morning. Probably would be better with more food options but that’s usually my motivation for anything.
  • Salamanca market is a must visit place when in Tasmania. The atmosphere and people who contribute to the market are an absolute must to experience. No where in else in Australia can you experience what Salamanca market can offer. The street food is unique and the produce is direct from the agricultural state of Australia. You will not find produce as high as quality as can be found here. Aside from fresh produce and food offerred here, the Gin that local breweries produce are a must taste. My favourite or recommendation for you to try is the Hellfire brand or any spice gin as its flavour is unmatched by any other alcohol.
  • Great market with everything.Fresh foods that are award winning fabulous arts and craft as .Amazing apples and pears so fresh. Be prepared to walk and omg don’t forget to try the cream cheese bagels ,they are to die for. Tried the Tasmanian truffles and brought a set for my husband amazing. Brought amazing photo art necklace for myself. This market is actually 5 stars but one bad apple amongst the bunch. One stall holder was extremely rude and asked us if we would like to try his produce. he was very rude not smiling kind of rolling his eyes at us. I tasted but decided not to buy any as the vibe was terrible. As my friend and I walked off he said to his mate with him , that it annoys me when people try but don,t buy. Maaaaaate ............... Yes we heard . Totally rude buddy. Bought great N——— elsewhere.
