Our First Competition Entry: Salamanca Market, Hobart, Australia

Thanks to all of you who entered our Worldwide Market Guide Competition during the week. Congratulations to Jenny Parsons from Melbourne for sending in our favourite entry for the week. Jenny is now in the draw to win a $150 gift voucher, lucky girl!  If you would like to find out more about our competition, click this link. We would love to hear all about your favourite market. Here is Jenny's entry:

I LOVE the Salamanca Market in Hobart.  It is an outdoor market that runs between 8am and 3pm every Saturday.  Here is a map of the market.









Every time I have visited the Salamanca Markets there have been SO many people there!  It has such a great vibe and there is so much to see.













I love all the locally grown, organic produce that is for sale, you can just tell that it has been freshly plucked out of the ground! There is also heaps of local Tasmanian art and crafts for sale and you can meet the artists as well.  There are plenty of food stalls to choose from if you feeling a bit peckish, so once you have finished shopping, you can grab something to eat and laze on the grass in the sun (at least that is what I did!).  I highly recommend a trip to the Salamanca Markets if you get a chance.
