This is a MUST VISIT whenever I come to Sydney. So far, everyone I've brought here agreed.... Except my local Sydney friend who finds the parking too expensive and the food overpriced! I guess this is more a tourist place. You can get experience the market atmosphere and taste the fresh seafood. Wonderful to me!

It is very easy to find this place. There is a tram service to this place. I had my lunch at one of the shop, Peters, if I'm not mistaken. The taste of the food is very reasonable. It was really delicious.

I have been craving for cockles since I left my home country. Haven't found it in Brisbane, and when I found it in the Sydney fish market, I thought I was dreaming! It was juicy and fresh. If you haven't tried sea urchin, this is the place to try it. It won't get any fresher than here. And if you... More

I had heard about this venue from various sources, so had to check it out. It was much more about the dining than purchasing in my opinion, not exactly what I had envisioned. Food looked great though, and next time I am in town and need to purchase seafood for dinner, I know where to go!

When you visit Sydney, it is a must to visit the fish market. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, a wine store and a fruit market. Our family ate lunch here one time and the food was great. Be aware of the birds when eating outside, they are notorious in stealing your food. 👍😋

When in Sydney, do spare a lunch there. a popular spot for lunches with locals. Many restaurants serves variety of seafood at reasonable price. Beware of seagulls too. they can steal your food.

Seafood is fresh from crabs, lobsters, oysters, shrimps, squids, etc. You name it they have it. You can easily choose the seafood you want to eat and have it cooked. There are vendors that sell prepared food if you don't want to go thru the hassle of choosing the fresh seafood. There is seafood fried rice for A$5 for small... More

Тhe market has several restaurants offering seafood. The price is reasonable and the food is exceptional. Seagulls are pretty annoying.
