Paddy's is Australia's oldest traditional markets, and operates in 2 locations, at Haymarket and Flemington, with Haymarket being more central and more popular. Paddy's Haymarket is located on the corner of Hay Street and Thomas Streets, directly opposite Chinatown and the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Market City is in the same building, offering warehouse outlet shopping.
You will find everything you want at Paddy's for bargain prices. They sell fruit and vegetables, to souvenirs, clothing, bags, food, jewellery, cosmetics - the list is endless.
In 1842 Sydney City Council took control of the Markets and officially named them Paddy's Markets. In December 1993 paddy's Markets moved to its Haymarket site. And in 1997 control of the Markets was transferred from government to to industry and the stallholders became shareholders! That sounds pretty fair to me!!!
Paddy's Haymarket is open Wednesday to Sunday and Public Holidays from 9am to 5pm. Paddy's Flemington is open Friday 10am-4.30pm, Saturday 6am-2pm and Sunday 9am-4.30pm.
Paddys Haymarket is easily accessible via either the monoral or light rail, or by foot from Central Sydney.
This market was great for buying souvenirs! You have to be careful and know what days the market runs on, as it is only for a few days a week. We almost missed it by one day, as we arrived on wednesday, the market was not open on thursday.
It is easily accessible by many bus stops, tram stops and a monorail stop.
You can buy almost anything from Paddy's Market. From souvenirs, leather goods, electrical, jewellery, produce and even pets.
The market city is also at the same location. It offers shopping, cinema, retail outlets and restaurant.
It opens thu to sun and on public holidays.
As our hotel was handy to Paddys Market we decided to head off to check it out.
Paddy's is located in a huge brick warehouse type building near Chinatown and Darling Harbour.
The market is huge and rows and rows and rows of stalls are selling endless supplies of handbags, luggage, jewellery, t-shirts, knick knacks, arts and crafts and ... watch out for the guys doing the massage.
They nabbed me straight away and it wasn't long before they had me parted with $20. I swear they knew a secret part of my hand that would make me more agreeable to their sales pitch because whenever I felt in control, the guy would grab my hand and start massaging and their I was ... agreeing to another $5 worth of neck or back massage.
It felt pretty good though so it was probably $20 well spent.
If the market is getting too much head to the Outlet Centre in the same building... you might find a bargain or two.
There is a large food court here as well if you need to refuel after all the shopping.
