The Sydney Markets are situated close to the Olympic Park. The fruit and vegetable market is probably the most exciting part. It's only open on Fridays and Saturdays, and the gates close at 3 pm. You will mostly see people of Asian or Arabic background here, who are shopping for their restaurants. And you can realls do a bargain here. However you have to by large amounts at a time. We've bought 6 kilos of tomatoes for 4 $, 8 kilos of apples for 2 $, 5 kilos of potatoes for 1 $, 8 kilos of onions for 2 $ etc... We had enough of onions after that... But it's also just fun watching... "1dollar, 1 dollar!" and people filling up their cars til the roof.
Recognised both locally and internationally as one of the country’s most interesting tourist destinations, Sydney Fish Market is uniquely placed on the edge of downtown Sydney located on beautiful Sydney Harbour.
The Market operates as a working fish market while also servicing a thriving retail sector. Sydney’s six largest seafood retailers are located on site as well as a variety of associated fresh food outlets.
The public is invited to view the auction, held every weekday commencing at 5.30 am. Otherwise, the retail outlets are open (for the public) from 7am every day (except for Christmas day)
Lobsters & crabs here are my favourite. Yum, yum!! If you're really keen, they have a Sydney Seafood school, which will teach you some things about cooking seafood.
Its quite customary for Australian familites to purchase at the fish markets when having a number of guests for a meal. Mostly locals here.
This market is best known for it's "new and second-hand clothing, books, CDs and multicultural souvenirs".
With a laid-back atmosphere, Glebe Markets is a beautiful place to leisurely browse through and chat with the locals.
It's got a serene 'rest area' under the shade of some trees where you can sit back and eat lunch.
