“The place to shop!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

After buying a few souvenirs at various places in Sydney, we went to Paddy's market, and I was chagrined to see that items that I paid $3-4 EACH were selling there for about 4 for one dollar!!
Frugal traveler that I am, I quickly learned this is the place for me! I found lovely embroidered
linens, 4 for $10, coaster sets, 4 for $10, "Croc" shoes, $10 a pair, great tote bags for $3, etc. All this, plus lots and lots of fresh produce on the first floor of this 3-story huge building. Second and third floors resembled any mall you would find any place in the world. Paddy's located in China Town, 5 minutes to Darling Harbor, and about 3 minutes from 555 bus, free bus in Sydney.

“One Stop Shopping for all Souveniers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Forget about all those small souvenier shops you will see in Sydney. Why not go to one place where you will find them all and, at lower prices. We actually made two trips here because it is a big place with much to look at. Stroll along the aisles and you will find Uggs, t-shirts, aboroginal artwork, clothes, pocket books, tons of toy koalas and just about anything you might see in the regular souvenier shops. We were sorry that we had already bought things elsewhere. Of couse, if you are looking for original artwork, antiques and/or fine designer clothing, this is not the place to go. But for a fun, interesting flea market-type setting with good value, give it a try. Think London's Covent Garden and you'll get the idea.

“Must do!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

A good place to buy your "fake" uggs! A great wide variety of fruit and vegetables! Also a great one stop shop for souvenirs. Upstairs also has the outlet shops and a great place to eat!

If you are in Sydney and looking for souvenirs then head to Paddy's Haymarket. Loads of options and mostly great prices.

“Always a hit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

I visit Paddy's market every time I come to Sydney for the affordable clothes and shoes. Love! A great place in the city where you can shop cheaper! Definitely worth having a look here and even grabbing some lunch in the food court!
