My favourite area of Hobart is Salamanca Place with its historic Georgian sandstone buildings, warehouses, pubs, and cafes. But most importantly, I love it because it also plays host to the famous Salamanca Market every Saturday morning.

We spent several days in Hobart and having been told by many of our readers commenting on our facebook page that we can’t miss these markets, we made sure we time our stay over a weekend.

And we’re sure glad we did. The Salamanca Markets are some of the most vibrant and exciting markets we have seen in Australia.

The market has over 300 stalls that occupy the entire length of Salamanca Place, which is in the heart of Hobart’s city centre in the CBD.

Not only is the market a wonderful place to check out, but the waterfront location means you can explore more of Hobart’s CBD and waterways.

On offer was fresh and local produce, locally made products, arts, gift shops, and handicrafts from all over Tasmania, interstate and overseas.

You can also meet the stall owners, who are creators, makers, artisans, designers, farmers, growers, and producers. It’s the ideal place to pick up some home grown produce or handmade crafts as souvenirs to take home.

You can also find artists selling artwork, woodwork, and jewellery.
