Markets are a great way to celebrate the artisans, producers, growers and makers of a community – and they're one of the most enjoyable ways to get to know a city too! Take a local approach and soak up Launceston's market scene, which offers up a vibrant approach to supporting the UNESCO City of Gastronomy’s diverse and awarded local produce across a variety of food-centric markets. You'll also be able to give the state’s northern crafters and makers a good look in as well. 

These are the best markets in Launceston to sample tasty eats, source fresh produce for your next dinner party with friends and find a one-off treasure to gift or enjoy all to yourself.
