Haven't been for a year or so and this place has gone downhill. Used to love a good bargain here. Now it's filled with cheap mass produced junk. Nothing special here at all. Possibly good for the souvenir hunter if you cut the made in China tags off. Seriously how many phone nik nak stalls! Rows and rows! Rubbish clothes,... More

Not that great, many rows of the same stuff, cell phone covers, tacky clothes/shoes, souvenir t-shirts etc, Only useful if you need to buy cheap souvenirs for kids etc, otherwise wouldn't bother going. ON the level above are some outlet shops which were better than paddy's.

I went to Paddy' Market as I was going through Chinatown. This place is filled with small stores, selling mostly souvenirs, phone casings, winter clothings and other misc items. Small souvenirs like key chain or fridge magnet is about aud 5 per piece. Overall a pleasant place for souvenirs with many options.

This market is a cornucopia of bric-a-brac and souvenirs. I was here to pick up some e-cigarette liquid, as there is some on offer here with nicotine, which is not legal. I ran out during my travels. The location is just next to Sydney’s Chinatown and 5-10 minutes from Darling Harbor and the Chinese Friendship Market. Come here to pick... More

When I lived in Sydney, Paddy's markets was always the place I would go to for my groceries. I made a trip every Sunday. Some people frown upon that the produce here but I never really really had any problems as long as you pay attention to what you're buying. This is also the best place that I found to... More

Need souvenirs to bring home? This is the place to go. Prices are cheap, usually China made items, but still of ok quality. Monorail is right in front so it's very convenient to reach. Lots of keychains, t-shirts etc. There are some fake items as well so be wary. All in all a great place to shop if you're on... More
