At street level, the indoor market is several acres of stalls selling everything from tourist souvineers to electronics, nuts to fruit and veggies, and luggage to clothes to pack in it. And the prices are very pocketbook friendly. If you're looking for more upscale merchandise, take the escalators for name-brand merchandise. There's also a food court and small IGA for... More

Saw a lot of great review that this is an interesting market. But if you are from Asia, don't waste your time. The streets from Town Hall leading into the Paddy's market are filthy and smelly...merchandise in the market are 70% dated and uninteresting. .. suggests you spend time somewhere else ...

If you're visiting Sydney and looking for souvenirs for friends and family, then pay a visit to Paddy's Market. Lots of stalls within the market selling a variety of items from clothes and leather goods, to jewellery and electrical items and accessories. There are plenty of stalls to look around within this covered market.

Definitely worth a visit and if you pick up a street map cut the voucher off, complete your details then take it to Customer Service desk in the market hall and get a free bright green shopping bag! Excellent variety of stalls all with reasonably priced goods. Pick up all your souvenirs at rock bottom prices. After you have walked... More
