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.

Rated 4.2 out of 5Paddington Markets Star Rating

5 Star Rating Good stalls with quite merchandises. Central food area with life music adds to the atmosphere.

Anita Billings - 19 days ago

5 Star Rating Plenty of local ‘produce ‘ and quirky bits and pieces, great place for small Xmas gifts, especially items like pewter engraved animals of Australia on tea spoons, tea bag holders, cheese knives etc. local artists have some beautiful pieces at low prices. not the usual mass produced market material that does the rounds, well worth a look.

5 Star Rating Love these markets, higher end than a few other markets I go to, smaller too... but it's always a nice atmosphere. Some things are quite pricey, but it's nice to walk around there on a pleasant day. The music adds a nice touch as well..

4 Star Rating Its all undercover and right next to china town. Hundreds of stalls run by mainly asian vendors. Basically the same stuff in every aisle. There are a few food vendors and also a fresh fruit and veg section. Worth a look to kill a couple of hours.

4 Star Rating A range of nice small local producers and creatives displaying their webs in church grounds. Lots of local handmade and organic goods. Always good to go there seeing different shops every time.
