What you need to know
If you're looking for the ultimate spot to buy a souvenir or sample some local goods in Hobart, be sure to take a stroll through the city's long-running and famous market - Salamanca Market. Open on Saturday mornings, at this fabulous marketplace you'll find a diverse range of goods, with over 300 stalls playing host to an array of different products including fresh fruits and vegetables, delicious coffees and cakes, and an abundance of fine Tasmanian art and crafts including homewares, Tasmanian timbers and unique clothing pieces. The items on display here are typically of exceptionally high quality, and unlike at other standard retail souvenir stalls, you'll be able to come away with a distinct memento from your time spent in Hobart.
There's an immense selection of fresh food to try here, as well, so arriving early in the morning comes recommended to do "breakfast with a view" before browsing the other items on display. Easily accessible due to its fantastic location, Salamanca Market is closely located to many other fabulous Hobart sites, including the historic St David's Park, Battery Point - famous for its Georgian cottages and village atmosphere; and most notable the Hobart's picturesque waterfront hosting a harbour filled with stunning yachts and boats.
- Operates on Saturdays from 8:30am to 3:00pm weekly
