One for the overseas tourists

Not really my cup of tea…..stall after stall of cheap junky souvenirs, poorly made clothes and knock of designer items. Much better places to shop elsewhere.

Paddy's market is a good place to buy your souvenirs in Sydney as you will usually find the same items for a cheaper price compared to rest of the CBD area. It's quite easily accessible and there are basically a lot of stores selling similar items inside. Do take your time to look around before buying and you won't be... More

Was a little disappointed with the market a few good buys bought a couple of baseball caps at 2 for $25 and wife and daughter bought a couple of designer bags but not alot of other clothing especially if you don't want australian logo's all over the clothing. A few food stalls but very limited. Recommend visiting factory outlet stores... More

Good fun to wander around and sample some of the local culture. Atypical market with lots of touristy souvenirs, good fruit n vegetables n seafood to be purchased. I would recommend a visit just to experience the place.

The market was pretty average, every 6th stall is tourist tshirts, and they are the same in each stall! It seemed like there was about 8 different types of stall, just multiplied and spread around a big hall. A few gems, but lost in amongst the sameness.

just don't sped your money on souvenirs around Sydney or Australia. If you start and finish your trip in Sydney just go there before departure and you can any little gifts for everyone. So cheap and amazing. from koala keyring to clothes and bags etc. Shopping paradise.
