Markets Tips (45)

Markets: Paddy's Markets

Paddy's Markets located in Haymarket near China Town is a fantastic place to shop. An indoor market with thousands of stalls selling everything you can imagine.

What to buy We purchased some socks, local crafts and of course the obligatory souvenirs. We picked up some key chains, stuffed koala bears, bomerangs, postcards and a beautiful photo album.

What to pay Really inexpensive, the best deals around.

Markets: The Rocks

This market located at the Rocks is held every weekend (Sat-Sun) rain or shine. You will find all sorts of jewelery, arts and crafts, local pottery even doggie treats. I purchased my green necklace I have on during my visit to watson's Bay, and of course some doggie treats as my little Cookie always benefits from any of my trips.

What to buy Local arts and crafts

Paddy's Market: Good shopping at Paddy's Market

This is a great place to go if you want to buy Australian souvenirs, clothes, foodstuff and basically anything Australian for a cheaper price than the regular mall. However, a lot of the souvenirs, trickets and T-shirts are imported from Asia, namely China. Nevertheless you can still get some good bargains on the typical sounvenirs to bring home to wherever you come from

What to buy Well, I would get some of the cheesy souvenirs to pass around to my friends e.g little koala & kangaroo toys, Aussie flags, cheap T-shirts and imitation Ugg boots & outback hats

Sydney Haymarkets: The main markets

Haymarkets are open from 9am every Thursday to Sunday. Its the biggest market of its kind in Sydney. Inside the building you will find many stalls in this market selling a large range of items from fruit and veg to clothes, cds, home goods, souvenirs, toys, wigs, sunglasses etc. The market covers two floors with the lower ground stall holders and the first floor a dinning area.

What to buy I got some great presents to take home and there were differently some bargains to be had if you shopped around. I got a funny logo T shirt for my husband and some beautiful Chinese fans. My daughter got a funky woollen hat and scarf set.

Bondi Beach Market: Shop before you get wet!

It's another weekend market of Sydney. If you plan to visit Bondi, pick a Sunday and you can visit the famous Bondi Beach Market as well. The stalls were less interesting than those at Glebe Market and there seemed fewer stalls too (just my feeling, perhaps wrong). Yet, it still gave me a market feeling.

Glebe Market: Shopping with the locals

Glebe Market is simply fantastic. I didn't expect that I could find such a place, which was so London, in Sydney. It should be a hidden treasure in the locals' eyes as I didn't see many travellers (at least no other Asians apart from some stall owners). There were lots of stalls selling second-handed clothing, which I liked to check out the most. It's a great place to spend half of your Saturaday if you're in Sydney.

Opens on Saturaday only.

What to buy Tee! There are several stalls selling nice Ts, both second-handed and brand-new.
I found one stall (it's on the right edge of the market, somewhere in the middle (geographical height) but on the right if you face 'uphill') selling wonderful Tees, which were very funny, new yet gave you a vintage feeling! I bought one which cost AUD18 originally and in the end just AUD16! The stall owner also sells at Bondi Beach Market on Sunday. Don't miss it!

Don't miss the Paddington Market while in Sydney. It happens every Saturday morning.

There is a huge choice of goodies to buy. Everyone is catered for, whether you are looking for new, secondhand, handmade, or maybe food.

An ideal place to find that special present or something special for yourself. Choose from books, jewellery, clothes, hats, bags, belts, toys, cushions, photo frames, old wares, jams, chutneys, pickles, chocolate etc.

Feeling peckish? Plenty of food to choose from........burgers, sausages, falafel, doughnuts, and lots more. Wash it all down with a coffee or a cold drink.

Chinatown: Chinatown

During my holidays in Sydney, i find that Chinatown has the most reasonable pricing in terms of food. We went to the basement foodcourt ( in the middle) Not sure thge name of the food court. If you go there try their sizzling seafood. The portion is huge for only USD10! I actually ordered 1 and share with my hubby.

What to pay USD10

Sydney Fish Market: Fresh, Fresh Seafood

For all seafood lovers, this is a heaven because of the numerous availability and varieties. The seafoods are caught fresh daily and sold at affordable prices.
There are also other shops selling non-seafood items such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
Drop by the market early morning and enjoy the sea of the sea beside it.

What to buy Several recomendations were to ship fresh lobsters back to your home country at an affordable price. Don't worry about having to lug several boxes of seafood yourslf because arrangement to collect them at the airport can be arranged by the market.
