On any trip to the 'nature state', it's worthwhile checking out the treats and crafts on offer at northern Tasmania's largest undercover market, The Penguin Market.

Taking place every Sunday on the corner of Arnold and King Edward St in Penguin, you'll find over 80 stalls stocked with fresh produce, jewellery, fashion, handmade crafts, homewares and fine Tasmanian woodwork.

Penguin is situated in Tasmania's stunning north west coast, and is positioned halfway between Burnie and Devonport, and only a ten minute drive from Ulverstone.

Make sure to also bring the kids along with face painting and jumping castles to keep them entertained, as well as performances from local musicians.

There's also a range of food stalls to whet your appetite, with The Penguin Market also having its own licensed wine bar.

The market is open from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, with some of the stalls featuring furniture and crafts from Tassie Timbers, artwork from KevnLee and Evelyn Antonysen, and fine antiques and collectables from Selective Antiques.

If it's your first visit to the town of Penguin, make sure to get your picture snapped with the local icon – the giant penguin statue!
