Situated at haymarket in chinatown, sydney, the tram stop is just outside the market. It sells goods of many kinds and one can haggle. The food court is on level 2 with cuisines internationally.

We always visit Paddy's market when in Sydney, but it seem to have turned into a place where every second stall sells cheap, made in China, t-shirts, electronics, and souvenirs. Not many arts and craft stalls anymore. The fruit and veg section is excellent. Cheers Niels and Mary, Humpty Doo, NT, Australia, Down Under

Were in Sydney for a weekend and happened to be raining. Paddy's market was a great place to hang out for the morning. We were captivated by the wonderful range of fresh produce and happened to stumble across a stall with an absolutely amazing range of fresh spices. Could not pass by without a purchase for my next chicken dish.... More

All I can say is don't buy anything until you have a look at it all. As with most markets around the world, don't be scared to barter, and most of the stalls have the same or simular items, so have a really good look before you start.

This is the place to go to to buy all your souvenirs. You will be spoiled for choice with the many stalls selling everything from key chains to honey.

We have been to the markets before and of course they have lots of the same things you see everywhere. The nice surprise was the spice stall. It had about 50 bowls of spices and teas displayed really well - full of colour and aromas. We could not help stop and taste and then buy. Highly recommend you looking and... More

Paddys market is open wed-sun in China town Sydney. If you're looking for Australian gifts this is the place, much better value and the fresh produce section is a eye opener too. Hungry and like oriental food then go up (if you can find the lifts in the middle of the market!) to the 3rd floor for a Chinese meal... More
