Markets, Makers and Vintage Stores
Mixed markets in villages and towns are bringing communities together to celebrate eating and making local. Makers, crafters and bric-a-brac-ers come together with bakers, dairy producers, pig farmers and orchardists to offer a snap shot of the regions' creative diversity. Join in the tradition of sampling produce, accumulating good nosh and listening to buskers laid-back weekend vibes. With an abundance of creative talent in Tasmania, there's no shortage of places to find local art, craft, clothing and design and even meet a maker or two. Try exploring Hobart's laneways and smaller side streets for speciality shops. In Launceston you'll find hand-made wares, shops full of boutique designs, markets filled with fresh grown local produce and stores selling antiques from bygone eras. Tassie is a bargain hunter's paradise and it's easy to find a beautiful pre-loved piece of history in the many antiques and collectables stores. From friendly outdoor markets to high end boutiques, it's easy to buy local in Tasmania and take a piece of the island state home with you.
