We love to explore markets in foreign countries. It’s the best way to find out what kind of local products are available. In Hobart every Saturday morning the Salamanca Market is held at the Salamanca Place. It is a major tourist attraction in Tasmania and it can be very busy between 8.30am and 3.00pm. Especially during the summer month the market is very popular. Read on to find out why you should not miss it when you visit Hobart.
You have to be early to find a parking space close by, so the easiest way is to travel by local transport or the free shuttle bus that is available. There are more that 300 market stalls with, food, fresh fruits and vegetables, coffee, art, handicraft and many, many more interesting things to discover. It can be even more busy, especially, if there is a big cruise ship anchoring in the harbour. Up to 40’000 visitors are visiting the market every Saturday.
