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.

There is usually a small band playing, chill out with some food from tents nearby. I bought a leather wallet made from kangaroo tail. Nice jewelry too, we bought a ring from the man who makes jewellery with coins. Plenty of other handmade things.

I went for holidays to Sydney, we pass by car and stopped at Paddington Market. Beautiful place and very original handcrafts. There was an antiques stall were I did some purchases

interesting walk through. It does not have the feel it use to have. Once you left with some thing in hand today it has become a bit pricey & lost the feel of a market. I will return but not as often . a little disappointing.

If you aren't from Sydney, or if you stay less than 5 days, maybe isn't worth to go there. It's a very nice market but at the same time very small. I'd rather prefer to go to visit other places or shops.
