Salamanca Market this weekend...



Salamanca Market
is a bit of an institution in this old town. It is a large outdoor market with fruit, flowers, veggies, artisan bread and food and lots of lovely handmade crafts. It also has its fair share of sellers of imported products at the cheaper end of things and second hand clothes and antiques. It is a real mixed bag.

This week it will have a little pocket of stuffed pandas, glassy birds and wooden peg dolls. I feel a bit nervous about it, because I am not very well prepared for outdoor markets and well it is a bit wintery these days.

So if you are in the area please drop in and keep me company for a moment or two for a wee chat. I will be at the very end near the Silos on the green side of the street (closest to the water). Any tips from those more experienced most welcome!

How exciting Edwina! Good luck at the markets. I would suggest thermals - I've invested in merino thermal tops, pants and socks to keep me toasty!

Thanks, great advice. I am terrified of the wind mostly, oh and the rain... but the potential for a clear, bright and sunny winter day is also a lovely possibility....

Hi Edwina,
All the very best at salamanca. You will do great I'm sure! It was nice to meet you at the Barn Market on Saturday... your products are so lovely.
Hope it's not freezing at Salamanca, have a great time!

Hi Edwina. I would also suggest thermals and I often use the car rubber mat to stand on as cold can seep up the rough the dirt ground or concrete when you stand on it for a long time. DO you have a tent? I have found that this can help draw people and then sales in as a way of getting out of the weather etc.
Most of all have fun and enjoy the lovely community atmosphere that makets have with stallholders.

What a gorgeous photo. Having said that it would be hard to take a bad one with such lovely buildings.
I love Salamanca. I only wish getting there didn't involve crossing Bass Strait.
