Things to do in Sydney Markets!

Paddy’s Markets

Walking into Paddy’s markets is like walking into the raucous, chaotic, teeming heart of Asia. This is a place for bargain hunters or just plain stingy bastards. You may not be able to identify half of the merchandise of Paddy’s, but that’s the fun of it!  Open from 9 – 5 Wednesday to Sunday, Paddy’s Markets has everything you can imagine (or could never in your wildest dreams imagine). If you’re in the market for a watch that springs open and ejects a small dancing pig singing karaoke, I’m sure you’ll find one at Paddy’s. If you have a hankering for a hands-free umbrella headband with inbuilt radio, pop over to Paddy’s. As well as all this paraphernalia there is also a huge fruit and vegetable area. Go on a Sunday and fruit and veg is all dirt cheap!


Paddington Markets

The Paddington markets are some of the more high-end markets around Sydney (Leonardo Dicaprio himself was once seen perusing the stalls with an entourage of security guards trailing behind him!) selling high quality art works and craft items as well as boutique fashion goods.  You are bound to find some interesting, one-of–a-kind souvenirs at this market so if you need some gifts for the friends and family back home, the Paddington Markets are sure to have something for you! Saturdays from 10am.


Kings Cross Organic Food and Farmers Market

Make up for all those boozy nights out and Maccas meals with a trip to the Kings Cross Organic Food & Farmers Market – held every Saturday from 9am until 3pm! Get all your fruit and veg for the week plus all the fine artisan cheese, bread, preserves, juices, oils (and more!)  you can imagine! Located in Fitzroy Gardens; just a few minutes’ walk from the Sydney Backpackers Hub in Kings cross, the Kings Cross Organic food and farmers market is definitely worth perusing . An added incentive is that there are so many tasters that you won’t even need to buy anything – you’ll already be full!


Glebe Markets

Held in the leafy grounds of Glebe Public School every Saturday, the Glebe Markets are some of the most popular markets in the inner west, with a huge array of vintage and second hand goods as well as small business handicrafts, imported goods from Asia and South America, artisan foods and heaps more! The market stalls surround a grassy sitting area where live bands play and eccentric youths show off their hippie tricks. There is also always fantastic food and coffee to be found at the Glebe Markets – don’t miss out!


Rozelle Markets

every Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 4pm, the Rozelle markets are some of Sydney’s favourite second hand markets, with tonnes of collectibles and antiques, which some might judge as junk but others treasure!  There are over 100 stalls so you are bound to find some weird and wonderful things at the Rozelle markets.  Live music plays throughout the day in the lush grounds of the Rozelle Public School, a perfect backdrop for a lazy afternoon perusing the market stalls.


Marrickville Organic Food and Farmers Market

The Marrickville Organic Food and Farmers Market is reminiscent of a hippie folk market that would be found in Byron Bay or Melbourne, with a huge range of vegan and vegetarian products, live music, the freshest fruit and veg around, and a small collection of stalls selling books, clothing and antiques. All organic produce stalls feature a “Certified Organic” sign, so you know what you’re purchasing. Held at the Addison Road Center every Sunday from 8:30am – 3pm, these markets have got to be the best in the way of organic and locally sources produce in the Sydney region.


Kirribilli Markets

A huge part of the appeal of the Kirribilli markets is the view. Set against a backdrop of the Sydney harbour bridge and the Opera House, there couldn’t really be a more sublime spot to shop.  Due to Kirribilli being such a wealthy suburb, you are bound to find some treasures at these markets that once would have been sold for hundreds of dollars! You’ll also find some interesting bric-a-brac like vintage cameras and other collectibles. The Kirribilli markets are renowned for their food stalls so stop by for some unique and  tasty treats! Markets are held on the fourth Saturday of each month.


Bondi Markets

The Bondi Markets have everything in the way of boutique designer clothing and accessories, second-hand goods, exotic imports, crafts, and homewares. Many up-and-coming designers start out at the Bondi markets, so keep an eye out for high-end, unique clothing at reasonable prices! Set amid the picturesque beach-front grounds of the Bondi Public school every Sunday, the Bondi Markets are the perfect addition to a lazy day at the beach or after completing the Coogee to Bondi walk.(Note: there is also a great farmers market at the same location on Saturday’s).


Newtown Community Markets

The Newtown Markets offer a hodge-podge of pre-loved goods, plants, and antique treasures. Small but worth a look, the Newtown Markets are held every Saturday from 10 – 4 right across from Newtown train station. A perfect starting point if you’re planning to a day of shopping for vintage gems and hippie handicrafts in Newtown.


The Rocks Weekend Market

The Rocks Weekend Markets have been around for yonks, are a great place to find unique souvenirs and other Australiana products, which makes it a favourite amongst travelers. The stunning setting – the meandering cobble-stone lanes of the rocks- is also a major draw.  Explore the artisan food, craft, and boutique clothing stalls against a backdrop of bustling cafes and bars. Held every Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 5pm, the Rocks Markets are a traveler’s treat!


Surry Hills Markets

Held on the first Saturday of every month, the Surry Hills Markets are a favourite among Sydney’s young and hip community for their vintage treasures, second-hand bargains, and collectibles. Set in the quaint park across from the Surry Hills Library, the markets are always buzzing with life and laughter.  Grab a cold beer on the terrace overlooking the market at the famous Clock Hotel after browsing the stalls.
