Salamanca Market is one of Australia’s most vibrant and loved outdoor markets. It’s a new adventure every Saturday.
The Salamanca Market is located at historic Salamanca Place, next to the Hobart waterfront and with over 300 stallholders it’s an experience that’s hard to beat.
The Salamanca Market operates every Saturday 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, except for Christmas Day or Anzac Day when the market is held on Sunday. There is no entry fee, making it free to enjoy.
Tasmanian producers and designers make Salamanca Market memorable and unique. Tasmania’s biggest selection of locally made products can be explored every Saturday including hand-worked glass, innovative design in Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing, bespoke jewellery, organic produce, artworks, bath and body care, ceramics and leather goods, handcrafted cheeses, breads, wines and spirits, and delicious hot foods.
Salamanca Market is Tasmania’s most visited tourist attraction and has won many awards for excellence. In 2016 and 2017 the market was a winner in the Major Festivals and Events category at the Tasmanian Tourism Awards and a finalist in the Australian Tourism Awards.
It is proudly owned and operated by the City of Hobart.
