Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

The world's third largest seafood market, Sydney Fish Market incorporates a working fishing port, a wholesale fish market, a fresh seafood retail market, a sushi bar, gift shop, a fruit and vegetable market, a beverage outlet, indoor seating, and an outdoor promenade. There's so much to do and see here that most tourists opt to join an official tour. Contact the market's management ahead of time to organize a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular wholesale seafood auction. You can also drop by on a rainy day for a meal of fresh sushi and sashimi, for which the market is renowned across Australia. Keep in mind that the sushi bar gets extremely busy during lunchtime, so it's best to visit earlier in the morning to avoid crowds and take advantage of indoor seating.

  • Used to have great tasting seafood but it has become pricey and over hyped.
  • What's not to like. Fresh Seafood whether you're there to eat or to purchase something to take home and create an amazing dinner with. The only place to get your seafood. Also, check out the butcher outside near the carport entrance. Some quality cuts of meat 👍🙌⭐👌🙏
  • Very busy. Great variety of foods on offer. Not just seafood. Fruit veggies, breads, wine and cheeses. Light rail is the best way to get there with a station right out front. Or an easy 10 minute walk from Darling harbour.
  • My favourite place to pick and eat fresh seafood produce while sipping on a Campos coffee. Everything is clean especially during covid and I don't miss the crowded times when it was virtually impossible to enter the place. Great customer service so friendly. Check out the delicatessen they have the best hidden treasures like honeycomb and they give the best advise on cheese and meats for platters
  • Fabulous choices and varieties all at the very highest quality and value. There is nothing like the taste of fresh seafood to tantalise every sense and create reward in the satisfaction and enjoyment from every sensational bite. Brain food live and full of flavour. There are such amazing choices and options in every shop and market counter at the Sydney Fish Markets. Excellent parking. Wheelchair accessible.
