From the advertising we were looking forward to visiting this market but it p
ossibly the most disappointing market I have ever been to. Full of the worst kind of imported rubbish you can imagine.

Wonderful day browsing markets
Dec 2020
Left Launceston with Mcdermotts travel club and their very capable driver Nathan for the Penguin Markets, we were amazed at the size of the markets and the variety of things to be bought, Nathan allowed us plenty of time to browse and purchase. There was a great choice of refreshments also. He then took us down to the Wynyard markets along the foreshore, again we were giver time to enjoy everything that was to offer, and admire the sea rolling in to the beach.

Friendly Market

Picked up some bargains here and loved the permanent setup and friendly stall holders. Live music and food area included.

A GOOD LITTLE SUNDAY MARKET
Feb 2020
This market was not was I was expecting. I'd envisaged something more interesting and eclectic with a lot more produce and, perchance, good coffee. But we were there later and perhaps a lot of stalls had closed up, or perhaps we missed a whole produce section? We couldn't find anything decent to eat, but had a coffee which was not good. Tassie seems to be a bit hit and miss when it comes to coffee and the prices can be so variable, often far more than Sydney or Melbourne inner city prices, but very inferior in quality. So it's not a market I'd rush back to, but to be fair it was late in the day.

If time you have then make time to visit

Markets are mostly the same over and this one is know different but its worth a look see. A bit of a rabbits warren in its layout & things are there that you will find in any market but found stall holders very friendly willing to have a chat.

Town market
Jan 2020 • Family
Typical town market with a big selection of second hand stalls. Friendly stallholders, good variety of stalls too. And it's all undercover which is good. Also has a stage for music and a little food court area.

Disappointing
Sep 2019 • Solo
Was expecting fresh produce and local food delicacies. There was one farm stall with a good range of vegetables but that was it.
Other than that it’s is a Flea market full of junk.
The only other food was 4 sad offerings in a sub-standard food hall. Don’t bother. If you want farm fresh vege, get it from the couple out the front and don’t go any further.

Gone downhill
Sep 2019 • Friends
We went to the market today.
It’s a bit like a garage sale that never ends..
Lacks interesting lay out and some of the quality of the stalls is low.

Heaps to see if you are into crafts

Very craft market and lots of second hand stalls directed more at young families. Didn't find much for middle age couple. Spice shop had a lot to offer.
