Sydney Fish Market (SFM) is the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world's second largest seafood market in terms of variety outside of Japan. A working fish market, SFM sources product both nationally and internationally and trades over 14,500 tonnes of seafood annually - with up to a hundred species traded every day.SFM employs approximately fifty-seven staff to organise the weekday wholesale auction, promote Sydney Fish Market as the centre of seafood excellence and operate the Sydney Seafood School. Since opening in 1989, Sydney Seafood School has played an important part in persuading Sydney residents to eat more fish. The School is considered to be one of Australia’s leading cooking schools. Over 13,000 people come to classes each year. Visit the SSS pages for more information or to book a class.Onsite, SFM hosts six seafood retailers, a bottle shop, fruit and veg market, bakery, sushi bar, restaurants, gift shop and deli.If you would like to organise a 'Behind The Scenes' tour of our wholesale auction, please call or email us during business hours (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).

Sydney Fish Markets is a nice place to spend your weekend lunchtime, but only if the weather is sunny like it was for us today (Saturday). Relatively easy to get there. NOTE: Really busy during lunchtime but gets less crowded from 2pm onwards i think. If you drive there parking is $3 for first hour then $5 per 30mins thereafter... More

Difficult to get a seat, but go there knowing that, just watching and waiting for someone to leave, and when seated, the men got the food whilst others kept the table. Took a picnic basket, with a few personal things, and alcohol and soft drinks. Food was fresh as expected, and we all really enjoyed the seafood, which we had... More

Seafood is good quality and well priced but you have to check out each vendor for the best price, (We tend to shop more at Claudios and recommend to get there early for the best seafood) Deli bakery and fruit shop makes a one stop. We tend to walk to the markets from the city as parking can be a... More

I do not understand what is the fuss about this place. The seafood are so overpriced that only rich chinese tourists can afford. This market is certainly catered for tourists not for locals. I suggest you popby woolies or coles and you might get better and cheap seafood from there instead of sydney fish market. This is mainly a one-off... More

This was my 2nd visit, but the experience was better than last times. I went there on weekdays this time before 12noon, not crowd and lot of seats (I went there last time on Sunday afternoon, it was full of people, not easy to get a seat). There has lots of oysters choice from AUD 10 - 25 per dozen.... More

We stopped by to look around - watched fish and seafood being moved about. After that we walked through the different stall-restaurants to see what so being offered to eat - almost any things you want. We had some local oysters and some sashimi

I love the Sydney fish market simply because of its wide variety of seafood. We reached at about 930am and there isn't a lot of people which is good as I can take my time to choose what I wanted without any queue. By the time it's 1030 the crowd starts pouring in. We had 1 lobster, salmon sashimi and... More

The fresh and mouth-watering lobsters and oysters! Just be careful if you are eating outside for the seagulls are prone to grabbing uncovered food. I wish that the shops supplied containers for our food with lids. Otherwise it is very pleasant sitting in the sun near the trawlers at the wharves watching the world go by. The pelicans are always... More
