Tasmania has a fantastic market culture that offers a wealth of treasures from pre-loved and handcrafted gifts to clean fresh produce and delicious gourmet treats.
Weekends come alive with all kinds of markets in Tassie, the most popular being Salamanca Market on Saturday mornings in Hobart. This bustling hub of over 300 stalls, food and entertainment is set amongst historic sandstone warehouses on Hobart's beautiful waterfront.
Also in Hobart, the Farm Gate Market is a Sunday morning hot spot.
In Tasmania's north, the Harvest Market in Launceston is brimming with Tasmania's freshest seasonal produce.
You'll find more treasures at town and village markets across the state. Many older makers are active on the market scene and show off their creative craft and cooking skills to produce all kinds of practical gifts, delicious cakes, jams and preserves.
Tassie markets are great community gatherings and the perfect place to meet the growers and mingle with the locals, too.
