Whenever I visit Sydney I go to the Fish Markets often, lately I get a bottle of wine, some beautiful seafood and enjoy that for breakfast. The seafood here is superb and fresh, there are all sorts here, live mud crabs, maron, yabbies and all the usual stuff. I generally stay at a hotel that has a kitchen and buy... More

Don't expect it to be like a market. It's cold storage with some shops on the front. Not worth a look

If your idea of fun is being surrounded by thousands of hungry Chinese tourists and millions of aggressive seagulls then this is the place for you, otherwise steer well clear! Best to have a more peaceful seafood experience in one of Sydneys fine restaurants.

The seas around Sydney are so rich there was no surprise that the fish market was a highlight of our tour. There were seafood of all shapes and sizes ranging from the vibrant blue crabs to the bugs and scorpion fish. After browsing the wares we shopped at a couple of stalls for lunch only to discover the main drawback... More

We took a tram from Market City to Sydney Fish Market stop which was directly across the road. Purchase tickets from the conductor on board. SFM is a must place to visit. A great place for seafood lovers. A good number of shops to choose from. Plenty of fresh oysters, sashimi, crabs, famous fish and chips and you'll be spoilt... More

Seafood laid out in front of you that can either be eaten straight, or cooked on request. The oysters, prawns, softshell crabs, lobsters and many more were just so delicious and fresh. it gets busy nearer to noon so I'd say go early and have a great breakfast there!

I visited here on a recent trip to Sydney. There are several different shops serving a wide variety of fish and seafood. There are a few places where you can buy cooked and ready to eat food. The prices are reasonable, but the seating is limited and the main area did get quite busy. Eating outside is nice, although there... More

This is a great place for seafood lovers as you can never find another place packed with such a great variety of oysters, shellfish and fish, both cooked and raw. You have your pick and the shop attendants will cut and pack for you. Make sure you carry an empty stomach with you. The price for food is reasonable. But... More

This is a must go place for tourists if you like seafood. Freshly shuckled oysters (with great variety), fresh tune and salmon, lobsters, prawns, snapper, yellowtail kingfish, squid, mussels, mud crabs, etc, etc. You name it and its there. You can even have whatever you bought cooked right in front of you, and eat the freshest of seafood under the... More
