Paddy’s Market

Paddy’s Market is the largest market in all of Sydney. It’s been a significant fixture in the local community, having been around now for over 150 years.

Its origins date back to 1834 when then-Governor Bourke relocated grain and hay traders to Campbell Street in Sydney. The move split the merchants and created a fringe market.

The new farmers in Haymarket had a loyal following. Even second-hand dealers and food vendors did rather well in the new area. When Governor Bourke allowed the markets to run until 10 p.m. on Saturdays, this eventually became the Paddy’s Market we know today.

With more than 1,000 stalls in two locations, Flemington and Haymarket, visitors can easily find everything they need in the market. Some of these include souvenirs, fresh produce, handmade goods, freshly cooked food, cosmetics, clothing, jewellery, pendants, books, art, music gadgets, and much more.

Many shoppers come to buy lunch or takeaway dinner or enjoy retail therapy, as many of the goods found at these markets are much more affordable than those found elsewhere. The market is also popular among tourists looking to find inexpensive souvenirs.

The Paddy’s Market Foodie Friday at Flemington is a great stop for fresh, seasonal produce at low prices. Other food items include artisan-baked bread, honey, nuts, spices, preserves, and garlic, available each Friday at the market. Paddy’s Flemington Sunday is another ideal market experience. It is highly recommended for anyone who wishes to experience an authentic market atmosphere.

All the markets and activities are family-friendly, with budget-conscious finds that appeal to all ages. The Haymarket location is on Hay St in Haymarket and opens Wednesdays to Sundays, 10am to 6pm. The Flemington location is on Parramatta Road in Homebush and opens on Fridays at 10am.
