Snippets from Salamanca Markets

Salamanca Markets in Hobart are well known and held each Saturday. Over 300 stalls including locally grown produce and locally made items, you could spend a full day there easily.

I’d forgotten what day it was and arrived late with only two hours to see, sample and enjoy its fare! Argghhh Yet I did manage to get a good look and feel for the place.

Tasmanian’s appear to be proud of their produce with good reason. I managed to munch down and take home (to Bugsy) an array delights.

The pears were straight off the tree the prior night – yet I had to wait two days until I could really get the full flavour – patience is not one of my virtues!

Hmmm honey……This I didn’t have to wait to slather on my toast and pop a teaspoon into my morning chai tea!

What a fabulous idea – bags made out of old ship sails. The sails are donated (even some from the Sydney to Hobart Yatcht Race) and the parents from the school sew them up into shopping, beach, toiletry, carry bags. Brilliant gifts – each piece is unique and a bit of Tasmania.

Feel the warmth and inhale the rich smells of Tasmania’s timbers…

A fabulous array of HATS!

Locally grown (wool and alpaca) items…

and many, many more to choose from.

Than take a walk around the harbour…..
