Summer in Sydney is glorious. Locals and tourists alike love to take advantage of the weather as often as possible - including when it’s time to shop. As a result, Sydney boasts a variety of markets - some all year round, some just for Christmas time.
What could be better spending some time in one of the many markets on offer, browsing the gourmet food, handmade gifts, unique clothing, and organic produce?
There are many Sydney markets, but if you're only in Sydney for a short time, we’ve listed our top 3 to get a taste!
What better place to start than in your own backyard? Saturdays are Farmers’ Markets, so drop in to pick up fresh produce. The Sunday markets are a little more varied, with everything from fresh food, vintage clothing and records, to locally designed clothing and jewellery. The back section is more like a ‘garage sale’ section and is worth checking out for designer goods on the cheap.
When: Saturdays & Sundays, 9am-4pm.
Where: Bondi Beach Public School.
The Big Design Market
This 3-day celebration of art, design, and fashion is held at the Entertainment Centre in Moore Park - a short drive from Bondi Junction. The market will host over 200 designers showing off their handmade and local goods. There’ll be something for everyone: fashion and jewellery, craft beer, Dutch bikes, plenty of food, and free craft for the kids. Entry is $2 (children under 12 enter free), and you’ll also get to see the huge art installation by artist and author Marc Martin.
Where: Moore Park
When: December 7, 10am-8pm. December 8, 10am-7pm. December 9, 10am-5pm
These iconic markets showcase a range of up and coming fashion and design. Expect artists, sculptors, graphic artists, and more - it changes every weeK! Grab some food and a fresh juice and head over to the grassy lawn to enjoy the free live music between 12-3pm.
Where: Glebe Public School
