Open-air markets tend toward eco-friendly wares, and these—Sydney’s first—also have a stylish edge. Every Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, join fashionable locals in browsing handcrafted, refurbished, and designer goods. A portion of profits are donated to a local charity-run space for the city’s homeless, so this is feel-good shopping on many levels. Don’t miss an ice cream sandwich from Pat & Stick’s—the now-international brand started out here in 2004, and sells classic cookie-and-ice-cream combinations and popsicles in flavours like peach raspberry.
Open only on Saturdays from 10am-4pm make sure you wander through the markets for some good finds.
Great for weekends perusing in the sunshine in a open market. Close to cafes and upmarket clothing stores
On every Saturday from 10am, rain or shine the Paddington Markets have been in operation since 1973! With over 150 unique stalls filled with local fashion designers, craftspeople, jewellery makers, artists, food outlets and more.
