Market Madness – A Guide to Sydney’s Best Food and Fashion Markets
22nd OF September 2012
Sydney is a bustling city with plenty to do and one of the things we love most about it is the wide assortment of markets. We’ve compiled our top three food and top three fashion markets Sydney side…
By Chloe Schneider
Bondi Farmers Markets
Bondi is best known for its beautiful beach and bevy of local hipsters but it’s the rustic farmers market that has foodies coming back every week. We love the wide variety of offerings –think artisan breads, home-made ice blocks, drool-worthy cheeses and a rainbow of fresh vegies – and, of course, the beachside location.
Where: Bondi Beach Public School
Day: Every Saturday
Time: 9am to 1pm
Sydney Morning Herald Growers Marker
The Sydney Morning Herald Growers Market has been supplying city-siders with fresh food for 14 years now but what we love most about these markets is the unique Market Chef Stage where each month a different guest celebrity chef offers market-goers recipe inspiration and advice.
Where: Pyrmont Bay Park, Pirrama Road, Pyrmont
Day: First Saturday of every month
Time: 7am to 11am
Sydney Fish Market
As the world’s third largest fish market, Sydney Fish Market is an experience every Sydney-sider and tourist should have regardless of whether you’re a seafood fan or not. Those who can cope with a 5am wake-up call should book in for a behind-the-scenes tour to experience the buzz of the auction floor first hand. After the market officially opens, punters can enjoy not only Australia’s finest seafood and sushi but also all the bakery, deli, bottle shop, fruit and veg, and flower stalls have to offer.
Where: Banks Street, Pyrmont
Time: 7am to 4.30pm

Kirribilli Fashion Market
Featuring 120 stalls selling new, second-hand, and vintage fashion and accessories and harbor views worth instagramming, the monthly Kirribilli Fashion Market is one to diarise. When Sydney’s style set do a wardrobe spring clean, Kirribilli shoppers reap the benefits so get in early to score designer clothes at high-street prices.
Where: Burton Street tunnel and Bradfield Park, Milsons Point
Day: Second Sunday of each month
Time: 9am to 3pm
Since the first Bizarre Bazaar event held in Sussex Lane experience unexpected success, event company A Series of Fortunate Events have been holding a bi-monthly night markets in some of Sydney’s coolest nooks and crannies. If you’re on the lookout for a local designer who could be the next big thing, this one is for you.

Time: 5pm to 9pm
Surry Hills Markets
If your wardrobe features an eclectic mix of vintage, local designers, and pre-loved pieces, Surry Hills markets is the place for you. Think carefully merchandised racks filled with unique clothes and a stream of Surry Hills most fashionable guys and girls. Even if you leave with nothing (although that’s highly unlikely) you’ll love soaking up the vibrant buzz.
