Salamanca Markets and Cascade Brewery, Hobart, Tasmania

Guest blogger edition

Salamanca markets is one of the main attractions in Hobart. Each Saturday morning, the entire street outside Salamanca place transforms into an awesome street market full of food stalls as well as random crafts and local produce.

It can be a bit hard to find parking down there so be prepared if you are driving. It is quite fun walking through the market browsing the stalls to see what is on offer as well as trying the different foods.

Delicious wood fired pizzas, made fresh in a portable oven using local produce - perfect for a cold Tasmanian morning!

You can smell the unmistakable aroma of sausages on the BBQ and there were plenty of hungry folk waiting for these beauties to come off the grill.

After the stuffing ourselves at the markets, we visited the other attraction in Hobart - the Cascade brewery! Only a short 10 mins drive away, you can visit the historic brewery which produces both beers and ciders.

There is small restaurant inside and a very nice garden outside, but on this occasion there was a large group booking at the restaurant so we just decided to get a quick drink at the bar.

For around $15, you can get a tasting board of the main ciders and beers on tap along with an explanatory menu.

We have been writing about food in Sydney since 2009. No place is too far or too wide for us to travel to visit. We always give an honest opinion and love to hear your comments too. Here's to an ever-growing society of foodies!
