Shopping Flea Market
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.

Where to stay in Hobart

Hobart features a varied selection of budget and mid-range rooms located within striking distance of the central business district. You can choose from single rooms in small but comfortable hotels, or spacious suites with sweeping views of the Derwent River. If you want to avoid the central areas, look for rooms in North Hobart, where you can stay moments away from some of the city's finest restaurants. Throughout the city, backpacker hostels and pubs with rooms for rent provide another affordable alternative for those traveling on a shoestring.

  • Has become quite commercialized over the years but still draws big crowds and has a few true gems of stalls. Great food varieties also. Worth a visit if you are in the area and dont mind crowds.
  • Loving the crowd and food. The atmosphere really brighten up our day making us look forward to our weekly visit to Salamanca. A cup of hot coffee accompanied by delicious food during the cold weather.
  • So much fun and so many things to see, try, hear, admire, and explore. But being a traveler who needs to be careful where my funds go, prices were high. But most of each item was handcrafted or hand grown! Something for everyone here!
  • I don't normally enjoy markets, but I did this one. Fantastic schools music competition / festival on the green.Great food & drink. First granddaughter just born.Found a lovely Felicity Fox dress for her. At one with the world.
  • One of the best markets I've been to, in the world! Get an espresso and scallop meat pie and give yourself plenty of time to wander the stalls. Unlike most markets that sell mostly junk and trinkets, most of the stalls here sell interesting, unique, and/or delicious items. Most things appear to be local and handmade.
