An exciting new market for Hobart

Hobart has a formidable number of high-quality markets; including the iconic Salamanca Markets every Saturday, the hugely popular Farm Gate Market on Sundays, and the MONA Market during summer. 

Now market lovers (and visitors to Tasmania's capital) can add a new market to the list; the Hobart Twilight Market kicks off this Friday at Sandy Bay. 

Nick Haddow's Bruny Island Cheeses are a major drawcard 
Stallholders will include food operators, cider and wine makers along with arts and crafts.

The market will be launched at 3pm on Friday at Long Beach Reserve, Sandy Bay, after several months of preparation. It will run until 7pm. 

Hobart Twilight Market co-founder Justin Davies said: “We want to give small business an opportunity to engage with the public and act as a springboard for artisan producers. We hope everyone comes out to enjoy the evening and support all the stall holders.” 

The market will showcase over 50 stalls featuring iconic names like Lark Distillery, Franks and Lost Pippin cider and Thalia and Bianca’s paté that was a hit on My Kitchen Rules

Think also Bruny Island cheeses, d'Entrecasteaux oysters, sweet treats from Fudgey and wines from Gerald Ellis's Ticklebelly label, along with a large range of gourmet fast foods perfect for a post-work snack.

Arts and crafts lovers can check out Richard Martin's metal sculptures and Difilia by Design while there will be several artisan designers in attendance. 

Market patrons are encouraged to bring along a picnic rug and soak up the atmosphere as the sun sets over the sea. Locals can stop by on an evening stroll or make use of new bicycle lanes on Sandy Bay Road.

The market schedule is: 
Friday 3 October, 
Friday 17 October, 
Friday 31 October, 
Friday 14 November, 
Friday 28 November, 
Friday 12 December,

After daylight saving returns the market will run from 48pm
