Take your bags as you will find many bargains in this great market. So many different stalls and so much to choose from. Right in the cbd and easy to get to.

Whatever you want Paddys have got it. I've never seen such a display of fresh fruit and veg anywhere like this.

I spent almost quite a time in here. Lots of shops and most of them are similar and Chinese stuff. It seemed quite expensive also and could not bargain as mentioned by some of them. But bought some soft toys and gifts. Food court does have very limited options for veggies. Dfc's can be a good option. Be careful while... More

Away from the glitz of central Sydney, this indoor market hall is reached by bus or light railway and is quite central. There are all manner of things for sale here. mostly souvenirs, in a proper market setting.

Dear Paddy’s Market Management, I have bought a kilo of string beans yesterday from one of your stalls. When I got home, there were fungi in the beans and almost all have black spots on them.

Paddy's market is a large flea market. Lots of the booths have the same things. It's a good place to get cheap, Australian souvenirs. Nothing fancy. It was very crowded when we went. Definitely not a must see, but if you want to get some cheap souvenirs it's ok.

Massive covered market with dozens of stalls. Very interesting place to spend a morning. Tons of T - shirts stalls and good for Australian souvenirs. We found all the stall holders very friendly. We even saw some designer handbags (doubtful genuine ) that looked very good quality. Lots of stuff at good prices. Much cheaper than the tourist shops near... More

It was peak holiday season so maybe this was why prices seemed to be a bit expensive for a Market - most of the stuff you could get at a better price somewhere like Kmart or Target. However it is an experience and you can get lots of 'Aussie' nick knacks there if want to take them back overseas etc.... More

I don't really get the hype about this place. It is full of cheap junk. I would be amazed if all the stuff in there was the real deal as well. This is a tourist trap targeting those who are after a souvenir. At the back is a food and produce market. This has lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.... More
