Each Saturday, Salamanca Market comes to life with dozens of stalls selling the region's best food, crafts, and souvenirs. Situated in front of large sandstone warehouses that have been converted into a maze of craftspeople's shops and restaurants, the market has been a major tourist attraction for decades. It's also a popular weekend meeting place for local families with kids. The warehouses were built in the 19th century to service the whaling industry. Today the market sells a variety of locally made products at inexpensive prices. This sprawling historic district offers opportunities to shop for gifts, drop by popular eateries, and visit the area's art galleries, which exhibit and sell works by local artists.

Salamanca Market reviews
So much to see. Something good for everyone. We bought some whiskey, gin, fresh grown summer truffle, a pair of pants; ate fresh oysters twice & some deep fried something....delishious more »
This was a fun way to spend your Saturday morning. Loved the artisans and home made wears and plenty of food to try. Managed to find some unique gifts. Still some stalls selling overseas made goods... more »
A very touristy market but many stalls and lots of atmosphere (when i was there). My partner and i spent 1.5 hours there but could have easily spent 3+ hours there. Was great to see distilleries there but they were usually quite busy. Reasonable amount of food options and the usual arts and crafts stalls. Highly recommended if you are visiting the area.
Nice market. Lots of 'local' stuff - quite a bit of tourist stuff, but that's to be expected. Nice stall holders - chatty and friendly. Bit pricey, but not crazy. A few live musicians who are pretty decent and/or interesting ! 😁
