Salamanca Market, Hobart

4.3
#1 of 105 in Shopping in Tasmania
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.

  • Salamanca markets was great, they are unique and diverse. It was very busy so best to get there early especially to get a car park too.  more »
  • Market has lots of great stalls, definitely a must do when in Hobart However is crazy busy. Definitely go early to avoid the crowds.  more »
  • Plenty of stalls with a lot of wooden articles and jewellery. A large cruise ship came in on the morning so the market was crowded with tourists but still plenty of space.  more »

  • Great market in Hobart with lots to look at. Food options are good with a lot of local influence. Local craft with dime nice things available. Being from Melbourne and I have been to the St Kilda esplanade market on a Sunday, which I would not go back as it has very view stores with s lot of the vendors not there. A must see if you are in Hobart.
  • This was one of the main highlights of the trip. Love coming here to try out local produce...especially the scallop pie and the oysters! Can get crowded but not over the top - I could still push a pram through comfortably. Great location - by the water, near cafes and shops. It's a lovely day out here.
  • Worth spending half a day here! Eat your way through the stalls, however, you’ll need a few bucks! I think market food should be more affordable than this, but if that’s the going rate.....! We bought a few nice things here, including a lovely bronze sculpture of a platypus, a small one mind! Great atmosphere, I was looking for paella, but it wasn’t here!
  • A must see when you are visiting Hobart. With Mt Wellington as a backdrop and located right on the foreshore of the beautiful Derwent River, the historical buildings provide the ideal location for Australia’s premier markets. Homemade delicacies and artworks from locals provide great shopping and food options.
  • Well i guess it's one of those random places where everything is marked up. The shopkeepers would barely make an effort to sell the stuff they brought over. It's a sellers market ans i guess there aren't too many shops in around. They wrap up pretty quick too around 3ish. Would've been better if there were more artists playing music
