  • The Markets are back and better than ever. They are spread out over a few blocks and are combined with outdoor dining areas. Great atmosphere and old world charm. A must-do on a weekend in Sydney.  more »
  • The Rocks Markets are back open. Great stalls and food. Support the sole trader local businesses. πŸ˜€  more »
  • This is a very touristy market visited by mostly tourists and hence there is no real local flavour to it. Visit only if time permits.  more »

  • Great quarter of Sydney just west of Circular Quay. The streets are filled with historical buildings with well known bars and business. There are also small Pop up stores. The highlight is definitely the Street market with great food and nice stuff and art to buy. It's topped of with some excellent restaurants so you are always just a few steps from a great culinary experience.
  • Been going to The Rocks Markets for a long time now. This place is a Sydney institution everything is unique or handmade and merchants are very friendly. This is a place we also take visitors when showing them the sights of Sydney. Highly recommend dropping in when in The Rocks you'll be guaranteed to find something new every time.
  • Great day on a December Sunday as the outdoor Christmas market had lots to shop for. Easy access from Circular Quay, large cruise ship dock and train station. Pretty area with old buildings, shops, restaurants and pubs. Close to bridge climb and Sydney Opera house and royal botanical gardens. Easy to spend a day here
  • I love it here. A great selection of fashion and goods forsale. More of an Arts and Crafts market really with some interesting stuff to discover. These markets have been here for many years. The location is excellent being under the shadow of the bridge and there are many cafes and restaurants around when you’re done. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  • Perfect for weekend market visit. Both locals and tourists favourite. Close to Circular Quay, Contemporary Art Museum and Overseas Passengers Terminal
