The Claude Road Market is a country market in Sheffield, north west Tasmania. Sheffield is 30 minutes south of Devonport (30 kilometres/19 miles) and 90 minutes west of Launceston (93 kilometres/58 miles).
Every three months, on the third Saturday of the month, Sheffield’s Claude Road Hall fills with stallholders and treasure hunters for the Claude Road Market. Here you can find fresh organic fruit and vegetables, garden and farm produce and locally made preserves, curry pastes, jams and sauces. The market has a strong emphasis on arts and crafts. Browse the creations of local artists and craftspeople and make your selection from the offerings of jewellery, clothing, leatherwork, hand weaving and ceramics. The Claude Road Market is open from 9am until 3pm.
