The basics

The name “Paddy’s Market” has been in use since the 1870s but the market has moved several times. (It operates in a second location in the Flemington suburb as well.) This strip-lit spot, however, feels thoroughly modern and more like a discount mall than a flea market or farmers’ market. Head to the upper floors of Market City for factory outlet shopping, Asian retailers, an Asian supermarket, and one of Sydney’s best-value food courts.

How to get there

There are two Paddy’s Markets in Sydney, but almost all travelers will find the Haymarket location more convenient than suburban Flemington. It’s a 5-minute walk from Sydney’s Central Station in the heart of downtown.

Sydney’s Best Markets

Sydney has plenty to offer market fans. For a dose of color, head to Sydney Fish Market—one of the southern hemisphere’s largest fish markets—before dawn and watch the fish auctions. On Sundays, try the Tramsheds Growers Market for artisan produce and fare. On Friday nights, the Chinatown Night Market—just opposite Paddy’s Market—springs into life with a wealth of great-value Asian gifts, sweets, and street food.
