Set amongst the historic Georgian sandstone buildings of Salamanca Place in Hobart, this famous market attracts thousands of locals and visitors every Saturday of the year.
Salamanca Market is one of those special places where you actually meet the people who create, make or grow what they sell.
The diverse range of nearly 300 stallholders includes original, hand-made Tasmanian pieces from woodwork to jewellery, fashion to fanciful glassware and ceramics, not to mention fresh fruit and organic vegetables, all accompanied by buskers and music.
From the market, it's a short climb up historic Kelly's Steps to reach the Georgian cottages and the early maritime village atmosphere of Battery Point.
Also nearby is Hobart's picturesque waterfront where you'll find fishing boats berthed close to cruising yachts and the occasional square-rigger or two.
Salamanca Market takes place at Salamanca Place in Hobart, every Saturday between 8.30 am and 3 pm – rain, hail or shine.
