The Evandale Market: what’s unique about this batch of market stalls? Well, you may have heard the phrase: everything but the kitchen sink? The Evandale Market (near Launceston) can boast everything including the bathroom sink!
The Evandale Market
Think Tasmania made a quick visit to the market during a trip to northern Tasmania to research the Penny Farthing Championships. This small village is about 15kms from Launceston, and the local airport lies between the two towns. We paid a gold coin for parking which included entrance to Falls Park on Logans Road, Evandale.
Market shopping takes various forms in Tasmania ranging from the gourmet, upmarket versions like Salamanca and The Market in Sandy Bay, Hobart. And then there’s the eclectic mix of craft, bric-a-brac, food and unexpected treasure that is the Evandale market.
Market Stalls and Pony Rides
Stalls spread out over the country grounds, between trees and roughly in rows. Children can indulge in pony rides while their parents enjoy browsing the photographs, hats and handbags; or just sip a Sunday morning coffee.
Several semi-permanent stalls inside the old hall present colourful displays and interesting products. You can find unique, Tasmanian wares like the dinnerware for pets sold by Studio Sebastian or select a Tasmanian holiday souvenir from the selection of local lavender gifts.
