contains a row of freestone warehouses dating from the 1840's. There are art and craft shops, and a large market on Saturday mornings.
A few words from Salamanca Place
Set between graceful plane trees and the mellow sandstone facades of historic warehouses, Hobart's famous market at Salamanca Place attracts thousands of locals and visitors, every Saturday of the year.
Visitors and locals alike come for the food and music – hot baked spuds, crisp organic vegetables, fresh fruit, the warm aromas of coffee and croissants; busker's singing the blues, stroking a harp or strumming a lively folk song. They come for breakfast and bargains – scrambled eggs and orange juice at a Salamanca bistro, then a stroll along the hundreds of stalls, meeting friendly people who make or grow what they sell.
Salamanca Market highlights fine Tasmanian art & craft – hand-worked glass, innovative design in Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing, and bold ceramics.
Salamanca Market is a five-minute walk from the city centre. Parking is available in Montpelier Retreat and in city car parks.
Salamanca Market is close to historic St David's Park on the fringe of Hobart's central business district, where city shops are open all day Saturday. From the market, it's a short climb up Kelly's Steps to reach the Georgian cottages and the village atmosphere of Battery Point.
Hobart's picturesque waterfront is also nearby – cross Salamanca lawns to the docks, where hard-working fishing boats are berthed close to cruising yachts and a square-rigger or two.
Enjoy the sights, sounds, flavours, action and colour of one of Australia's best outdoor markets every Saturday from 8.30am to 3.00pm at Hobart's Salamanca Place.
