Rain or shine, Paddington Markets, not to be confused with Paddy's Market, has something for everyone ranging from handcrafted jewellery to trendy fashions, unique artwork and food. 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.

Paddington Markets Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 Star Rating

3 Star Rating I visited Sydney 1st time for a week and I dedicated my Saturday for this market. However, the market wasn’t big as I expected and things were really expensive. It was a different experience but I regretted going there instead of doing something more interesting. I’m from Darwin and I find our markets (specially Mindil) here are lot more interesting.

4 Star Rating A small local market! There are many accessories stores, so go to a place that sells silver accessories by designing them yourself. It seems common, but if you look closely, it's classic and modern.The design is very attractive.
