The mission of the Paddington Markets is to provide space for creativity and positive community transformation in the local community. It is a place, to connect, to create and learn, and provides a place of trade for artisans, entrepreneurs, and many small businesses.
It is the perfect place for buying a unique gift that you can’t find anywhere else, to find the best of fresh produce and is a really great place to have a relaxed Saturday lunch.
Paddington Markets has been part of the mission and ministry of Paddington Uniting church for nearly 50 years. The markets began in 1973 as the brainchild of the late Reverend Peter Holden Rev. Holden is considered by many to be a visionary young minister who had just returned to Sydney after helping to organise the legendary Woodstock music festival. At that time, the church community saw the markets as a way to encourage the creativity Paddington had on offer as it developed a new bohemian new identity following the recent migration of artists to the area.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
