Rain or shine, Paddington Markets has something for everyone. This longstanding outdoor marketplace is open every Saturday starting at 10am where vendors have been plying their wares from up to 250 stalls since the early 1970s.

Located on the grounds of the historic United Church on Oxford Street in Paddington, this lively market place bustles with activity. You can browse through 1000s of unique Australian made items that you won't see in the shopping malls while buskers entertain the crowd with their live music. Merchandise includes trendy fashions, jewellery, artwork, perfumes, hand made pottery, books, flowers, food, all kinds of knick-knacks and more.

You will find plenty of choices for eating at the Market with the option of sitting outside or in.

Nearby attractions: Sydney Football Stadium and Centennial Park.
