#1 of 126 in Shopping in Tasmania
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.

  • Very busy and vibrant market. Various local produce and more from Tasmanian honey to timber crafted goods. Great place for foodies too, so much choices from stalls or the side walk restaurants for fresh seafood dishes etc.. the market is down by the wharf and even have free shuttle bus service taking you there every 10 mins on Saturdays (9am to 2pm)
  • Highly recommend, bustling old school market with loads of small vendors. Bought heaps of things from earrings to kids clothes and prints off a local artist. Lots of food options available. Allow about 2 hours to stroll through the whole market.
