About the Market

Located close to Hobart’s picturesque waterfront, Salamanca Market is located on Hobart's waterfront and is one of Australia’s largest and most vibrant outdoor markets. 

Each Saturday* from 8.30 am to 3 pm more than 300 stalls pop up along the gracious, tree-lined and historic Salamanca Place to showcase arts, crafts, jewellery, fresh food and produce, collectables and homewares.

First held in 1972, Tasmania’s most visited attraction has grown from a small collection of informal traders to a beloved institution, described by many visitors as the “best market in Australia”. Look out for some of the things that make Salamanca Market so special:

  • Talk to the artisans and craftspeople who create their products especially for Salamanca Market

  • Free tastings and samples to delight your senses

  • Tasmanian-made and designed products.

*Open every Saturday except Anzac Day and Christmas Day if they fall on a Saturday.
