Markets in Sydney are the ultimate weekend activity, where you can pretty much find whatever you’re on the hunt for—from fresh produce to vintage clothing. And the best part is, you can find them all over the city, so you won’t miss out no matter what area you’re in. Head to one for a fresh coffee, fruit and veg, buskers playing live music on the street, local vintage clothing and artwork, and much more.

Read on for my top picks of the best outdoor markets in Sydney.

Fashion and art markets

If you’ve got an eye for the latest fashion trends, there no shortage of fashion markets in Sydney where you can shop for some local jewelry, art prints, and trend pieces. The Rocks Markets, located near the Sydney Opera House, is a great option for these, and is held every Saturday and Sunday. 

Paddington Markets on Oxford Street and Bondi Markets are also good spots to browse racks for an afternoon. Marrickville Organic Markets, which is known for its fresh produce, also showcases vintage clothes, books, and even tarot reading

A few other fashion markets worth mentioning include Kirribilli Markets, Surry Hills Markets, The Westies Markets, Manly Market Place, and Sydney Boutique Markets.

Vintage markets

Are you the type who loves searching through racks of clothing in search of the perfect vintage find? Well, good news is that there are quite a few vintage markets in Sydney offering just that, including Rozelle Collectors Markets in inner west, with more than 100 stalls of second hand and vintage wears.

Glebe Markets also offers rows and rows of eccentric and colorful vintage clothes and jewelry, with some new local designs as well. Oh, and you can definitely grab an espresso whilst rummaging through the racks.

Fresh produce markets

If you’re after some fresh, local produce, there are a ton of different food markets across the city in a number of different neighborhoods. Orange Grove Organic Food Markets is a popular spot for those in Lilyfield, plus there's Northside Produce Markets, Rose Bay Farmers’ Market, and many, many more. With many not mentioned, all you have to do is a bit of research to find the one closest to you.

Got a craving for seafood and don’t feel like going fishing? Head over to Sydney Fish Market in Pyrmont, one of the biggest seafood markets in the world.

Seasonal markets

Just because Sydney reaches up to 40°C (104°F) in December, doesn’t mean that you can’t stroll through a Christmas market and pretend you’re in a colder climate, with snow falling around you. Of course, the Christmas markets will be closed now, but a few ideal spots to keep in mind for Christmas 2019 presents include The Big Design Market in Moore Park, Watsons Bay Christmas Twilight Market, EQ Christmas Market, and Darling Harbour Christmas Markets.
