Hobart has a lively vibe year round with all manner of activities to enjoy when you’re not on the water. We think these four markets offer diverse experiences for visitors and locals alike - and are all favourites of ours.
Hobart Twilight Market: great way to start the weekend with an eclectic mix of eats, drinks, design and music with a beachside atmosphere. Fridays from 4.30pm, Long Beach, Sandy Bay. More information here.
Farmgate Market: if it’s in season in Tassie, chances are you’ll find it here at one of the top ten farmers markets in the country. A favourite for Sunday brunch and picking up the freshest produce and tasting artisan foods. Sundays (all weather) 8.30am – 1.00pm, Bathurst Street. More information here.
Street Eats @ Franko: hyperactive night city markets offering funky stalls with street food menus starring our island's rich and abundant food offerings paired with Tasmanian craft beer, cider, local spirits or wine. Every Friday night, 4.30pm - 9pm, Nov to April. More information here.
Salamanca Market: the historic waterfront precinct hosts what is now a main attraction on any Saturday morning. Stretching from Davey Street to the silos, a myriad of stalls offer tasty food and drink (think cheese, gin, chocolates and jam to mention a couple) plus plants and flowers, herbs, art and crafts and more than you can think of! Saturdays 8.30am – 3.00pm, Salamanca Place. More information here.
