If you have a taste for fresh food, gorgeous hand-crafted items, vintage clothes or quirky gifts, then a visit to a Sydney market will be a rewarding and surprising experience. The city boasts several regular markets, perfect if you’re after something specific or just looking to spend an afternoon hunting for bargains.

Try Paddy’s Markets at Haymarket (open from Thursday to Sunday) for a vibrant shopping experience, while the freshest produce can be found at the Sydney Growers market at Flemington.

Food lovers are also bound to find something to tickle their tastebuds at the Eveleigh Famer’s Markets, held every Saturday at Carriageworks, while the Surry Hills Markets, held on the first Saturday of every month, is the perfect place to pick up a second-hand piece of designer chic.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a funky and eclectic market infused with an edgy, creative spirit – head to the Glebe, Rozelle, or Marrickville weekend markets, where you can be happily browsing through pre-loved clothes, books, records, shoes and furniture for many hours.
Whichever one you choose, a Sydney market can make for a fun weekend day-out – with some great buys thrown in!
