Good place to pick up some inexpensive souvenirs for family and friends. Much duplication of merchandise, and most goods made in China, but again can pick up cheaper gifts compared to souvenir shops on George St. If looking for authentic Australian made products, go to the Sat. markets at Paddington or The Rocks.

A must if you are staying in Sydney, something for every one evan locals! as well as dry goods they have a fruit section plus seafood although if you want good old fish and chips The Fish Market is well worth a visit .China town is close by and if its Chinese food you want you cant beat it Friday...

Takes about two hours to complete. I found some gems besides all the touristy stuff. Pure essential oils were reasonably priced and the fruit and vegetable market had some real good deals too.

Very busy market, but so much of the same so many identical stalls hard to get around as you are never sure where you have been. most prices are similiar give or take a dollar. The mono rail has been taken down but there is a free bus.

Paddy's Market is a fantastic place to shop or just visit. The building is very old and has a lot of character on the outside and in the stalls, The fruit & vegetables are reasonably priced and their are a lot of souvenir stalls, clothing stalls et cetera. I really loved the spice shop. The stalls are all under cover... More

If you need to buy some magnets, boomerangs, hats, t-shirts etc for relatives and colleagues back home, this is the place! Prices are very cheap compared to elsewhere. Note they are close on Mondays and Tuesdays, unless it's a public holiday.

It's a market, much like you'd see anywhere. It's quite big. Lots of Australia/Sydney themed souvenirs, so if you're after those, worth a look, but otherwise not really a holiday venue, in my opinion.

Not knowing anything about Paddy's we were shocked by the enormity of the place. The shopping was a fun experience and the prices and variety can't be beat. A tourist haven to get whatever you need for the families when you return home. We even found a bear full length costume (Halloween type) for only $25.

What else to say about this place. The best place to buy souveniers. I love the market especially where i can buy fresh fruits. The easiest way to come here is using the Light Rail train but it costly. While waiting for others to finish shopping,u can hang out outside and give food to birds. Kids enjoyed the most.

Always enjoy the market. Need to have a good look and there are a few good one off stalls. Found one where all the clothes are made by the stall holder. Lots of junk but that's always fun to look at.
