  • A pleasant morning was has browsing the markets which were small but interesting. Local media had it hyped as something more but we were still pleasantly surprised by the local artistry presented.

  • Very few stalls and nothing of interest. Food in nearby shops was far better. A complete disappointment
  • Small selection. Don't waste your time
  • I came to Balmain market on a very nice sunny day and was hoping to see load of stall like have grown accustom when i visit the market around sydney suburbs; but unfortunately the market was dead and just didn't have the excitement that the other markets had. It might have been that I came on a bad week as there were other event going on that day around Balmain but I feel that this wouldn't have changed much.
  • Interesting collection of vendors. Held every Saturday. Mainly art/collectibles with some interesting original art. The location is also nie in that you can walk down to Sydney harbour and browse around the Balmain shopping center
  • I've been really unimpressed with the quality of the markets in the last few years. There used to be a lot of original art and craft and small hobby businesses but they seem to have made way for knockoff watches, recycled clothing and cheap trinkets made out of plastic. The food court in the main hall has also become fair less broad in the cuisines represented which is a real shame. I'd never had Himalayan before I ate here.
