Photo diary: Salamanca Market (Hobart, Tasmania) in Spring

Print Friendly

I’ve always been very fond of markets – flea markets where one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, farmers markets where one can meet the most passionate producers and growers, and of course, who doesn’t love a good craft market!

A market which I always make sure I visit every time I’m in Tassie, is Salamanca Market.

I absolutely adore the vibrancy of the fresh produce grown by the Hmong community, and the abundance of all things Tassie-made! My haul from Salamanca Market back in October (I’m working through my blog backlog!) included jams, chutneys, honeys, native stone jewellery, Huon pine tablewares, cheeses and even baked treats.

I felt quite proud lugging all of that onboard as carry-on luggage! That’s the beauty about travelling to Tassie from Sydney… It’s far enough to feel like you’ve travelled to another country, but close enough that you’re able to transport fresh food through customs with no hassles!
