Saturday 6th August
Stop 1 (optional): Harvest Market
Enjoy a wander around the market at your own leisure
You’ll find that community is at the core of everything here in Northern Tasmania. Harvest Market is a Launceston community farmers market that celebrates the best of Tasmanian food & wine. Held every Saturday morning, locals and visitors come together to meet, mingle, connect with the producers, do their weekly grocery shop or grab a morning cuppa. It is local ritual that turns a quiet inner city car park into community space for farmers and locals.
The market opens at 8:30am.
We suggest you depart the market by 11:00am and make your way to Tamar River Cruises (13 minute walk, 5 minute drive)
