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.

  • Nice market with quite a few stalls. Will take you about an hour plus to wander through, great way to spend a Saturday morning. Plenty of little food stalls to satisfy hunger pangs as you walk. Prices may not necessarily be better than at your local Target for mass produced stuff, you need to pay the "quaint and rustic" tax that comes with these markets. That said, can find some odd knick knacks and local products unique to the area, as well as plenty of hand made items. Many buskers of varying ability to entertain you as you browse.
  • One of the best markets in Australia, great food and drinks. Make sure you have an hour or two free to peruse the handcrafted jewelry and beautiful Tasmanian wood and leather products. If there is even one cloud in the sky bring an umbrella.
  • You have to visit the markets if your in town. We had really nice food and was also a really nice atmosphere. Anyone who likes apples should try the hot apple juice at one of the shops, it was heavenly. Also make sure you have cash, not every shop has EFTPOS.
  • If you're in Hobart and it's Saturday, take a day out for this Market. Zip zag the stalls, eat along the way supported local Tasmanians who turn it on once a week with their little businesses of fine crafts and local produce. Organic produce and local fine food, spirits and wines for your apartment and while taking in the Port view when resting your legs after a hectic day.
  • So many wonderful booths. Love that everything was local. Many different food carts offered. The smells alone are worth the stroll through the market
