Salamanca Market in Hobart

Previous page: The Drunken Admiral Restaurant, Hobart

 

Our last day in this beautiful city was a leisure day so we were late rising.   Down in the breakfast room we came across Heather and Dave from our tour group.  They were most unimpressed with their room at Hadley’s.  Their room faced the busy street and was extremely noisy.  At least our room was away from all the traffic noise.

 

The Salamanca Markets in Hobart


It was a short walk from the hotel down to the Salamanca Markets.  We arrived there mid-morning.  It was a huge market – far bigger than I had ever anticipated.  There seemed to be hundreds of stalls.

Whoever organizes it does an incredible job.  There was a huge variety of stalls with most selling Tasmanian inspired goods such as timber products, lavender products, wood-fired oven breads, gift stalls, food stalls, buskers galore and a vegetable and fruit section too.  The whole place was jam packed with people, mostly tourists I suspect.  If you don’t like crowds then this is not the place for you.  We were mainly looking for gifts for our kids, Jeremy and Hayley.  We found a couple of small items and then headed out of the market.  To be honest I felt I couldn’t handle too much more of the push and shove that comes with large crowds of people.
