Whether its a family day out or first date material, a market can be the best way to spend the day. Presenting some of Sydney’s finest gourmet and artisanal fare; from hand-crafted cakes to charcuterie and chocolate, here are the top eight best street food markets in the city.

Addison Road: The Street Food Markets


Addison Road: The Street Food Markets

Every first and third Saturday of the month, hop a bus to Marrickville, West of Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) to indulge in a far-off feast. Celebrating the vast culinary cultures of people who now call Australia home, the Addison Road Community Centre brings us The Street Food Markets, an authentic food market featuring fare from the likes of Sierra Leone, Ethiopia and Columbia.

This street food market supports local refugee food stallholders as they share their traditional culinary skills. This is one of many initiatives from The Addison Road Community Centre which commit to community development programs, environmental activities and lobby for social justice. The market runs 4 – 9 pm every second Saturday.

Set in the seaside town of Bondi Beach, a stones throw from the ocean is Bondi Farmers Markets, a local farmers market with a flare for gourmet grub such as delicious sandwiches, fresh cheeses, meats and deli-style food. Running each Saturday from 9 am – 1 pm, this is the perfect pre-beach al fresco bistro. Alternatively, stop by and stock up on ingredients for the week ahead; this wholefoods market has a huge selection of seafood, meats and poultry; organic vegetables, freshly baked breads and hand-plucked flowers.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
