Set among 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 nearly 300 stallholders include makers of hand-made Tasmanian pieces from woodwork to jewellery, fashion to fanciful glassware and ceramics. Of course, there are also fantastic fresh fruit and organic vegetables, all accompanied by buskers and music.
From the market, it's a short walk up historic Kelly's Steps to the Georgian cottages and 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 is held every Saturday from 8.30 am to 3 pm – rain, hail or shine.
