Made in Tasmania, Fresh for You!

The compact nature of the island provides the perfect opportunity for local producers to peddle their wares. Not only can you buy fresh seasonal produce – the mixture of goods extends to flowers, chocolates, handbags, clothing…

Actually it’s impossible to list the whole variety of stuff here, just as the list of state-wide events in market shopping is a long one.

Salamanca Market, Saturdays in Hobart

Original and “new” Tasmanians have gravitated to all corners of the Apple Isle for a sea-change and to escape ordinary 9 to 5 jobs.  Encouraging the development of artistic passions, there’s an inspirational setting and a viable retail outlet.  This allows every community to have their own special day to join forces and draw a crowd to the local hall or oval.  Advertising usually runs to posters on roadside power poles!

But basically there will be a market somewhere nearby no matter the weekend or the weather.
