Started as a market to encourage local fashion designers, craftspeople, jewellery makers and artists, the market has over 150 unique stalls filled with creative fashion and accessories, beautiful smelling soaps and candles and pictures that inspire. You will not find these Australian designed and crafted products in any shopping mall and many of our products are exclusive to Paddington Markets. As Sydney’s original art and craft market Paddington Markets celebrates 43 years of trading and continues to be a community based market supporting local people passionate about their craft and the local community.Paddington Markets is an initiative of Paddington Uniting Church encouraging faith, justice, inclusiveness and creativity.
Come and take a look at our Australian Made section in the Courtyard of the Market or try our selection of handmade chocolates and local bread. Relax under the trees with your coffee and lunch and then buy some flowers or a bonsai to brighten up your home.
We have new traders every month, and live music every Saturday.
The best way to the Markets from the southern side of the Harbour Bridge is via public transport provided Sydney buses along Oxford Street from Circular Quay (and Elizabeth Street), Town Hall (Liverpool Street) & Central Station (Eddy Avenue). If you’re coming from the North side, try the new red M40 Bus which runs all the way from Chatswood, right to the front of the Market!! If you’re driving there is parking available in Centennial Park and it is just a short walk from the Oxford Street entrance to the Markets.
