Salamanca Market, Hobart

(4.3/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great atmosphere: such festivity! Popular among the tourist and locals! Definitely a must do and see in Hobart! Even if you don't have shopping in your mind, still interesting to see a wide range of woodcraft and produce local new designers have to offer. Allow plenty of time
  • Tasmanias biggest and oldest market. Lots of nic nacs and food.
  • 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.
  • Diverse selection of the best groceries. Cant get enough Knorr Bearnaise sauce, Finn Crisp hard bread, Marie's Pepparkakor MMMMMMM
  • Great market in such a beautiful historic location. There are some very well made handcrafts and heaps of great food. Talented buskers really round out the whole experience. Very cosy vibe in the whole place.
