Shopping & Markets

Our island may be home for a small population, but with a high ratio of talented artists, designers, and producers our markets are the ideal place to get a taste for some of the incredible hand crafted and locally made wares Tasmania has to offer.

Connect with our community at Launceston's Harvest Market, a weekly gathering on a Saturday morning of artisan bakers, growers, and producers, and where you can unpack with the creator first hand how their product came to be. On a Sunday, the colonial village of Evandale comes alive as locals and visitors alike flock to gather fresh produce, secondhand books, food vans, general bric-a-brac and local crafts. A modern day treasure hunt for adults, The Esk market is a lucky dip of divine home baked treats, much loved clothing, re-purposed goods and up-cycled labours of love.

The play button has just been pressed on Northern Tasmania's thriving market scene and unused spaces are being transformed whilst pop ups are doing well, just that, across the region. Less frequent but well worth adding to your trip planner are events such as the Launceston Night Market, Niche Market Bazaar, Deloraine Craft Fair, and My Closet Market. If calling through these townships say hello to an eclectic haven of unique products at the Derby Make Bake and Grow Market, Lilydale Market, Bridport Markets, and Exeter Market.
