Salamanca Market – Hobart, Tasmania

Salamanca Place is lined with beautifully restored sandstone warehouses along the harbor front. Dating back to the whaling days of the 1830s, these warehouses were the center of Hobart’s trade and commerce. They fell into disrepair and were under the threat of demolition before they were redeveloped into what’s now houses, restaurants, cafes, nightspots and retail shops. Every Saturday morning the open-air  Salamanca Market is held along Salamanca Place. With hundreds of stalls it is a popular weekend ritual for many of the locals and a few tourists like ourselves. There are the generic goods that you will find at any large market, but there are also specialty items such as organic vegetables, jams and sauces, handmade accessories, creative woodwork and ceramics, and collectables. If you find yourself in Hobart on a Saturday morning, it is worth a visit.
