Sydney Fish Market, Sydney

#3 of 81 in Shopping in 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.

  • Great and iconic spot for a family outing or a friends' gathering. I usually go by myself and still have a great time. Good variety of fresh seafood. Good value if you get fresh items. The fried or pre-cooked items, though very tempting, are underwhelming and will fill you up very quickly. Best to visit between 10.30-11.30am or after 1pm if you want to avoid the crowds and find a seat. It gets crazy busy between 11.30am and 1 -1.30pm. Also, beware of the seagulls if you sit outside. They are very very aggressive,drawn to food and are not shy around humans.
  • Where do you start...the plan was to go for an hour or so, lol, we ended up there for the whole morning and had lunch there too - some seafood were affordable some not due to their sizes. staff were very friendly and welcoming, but it is a very busy place due to the seafood being fresh. My partner and I ordered our meal and got a seafood platter of our choice, price was good considering what we chose. We loved it, awesome platter of seafood at an affordable price we thought. Be daring and try something new, you will never know unless you step out of your comfort zone and that my partner and I found it very enjoyable morning of exploring and indulging in the seafood on offer.
  • 10/10 would go again, and have several times!. Great place to grab a long lunch and check out the view. You can grab a bottle of wine from the shop along with some glasses and enjoy it outside. If you like oysters make sure to try the Sydey Rock Oysters. They have a massive variety of fresh seafood to buy and take home. Check out the tours to see how it all works behind the scenes AND get loaded up on info and ideas for all the awesome fishes. Also the Seafood School is really fun and informative, even for people who think they 'don't need' cooking lessons!
  • Well it said that Sydney fish market is one of the biggest market there is. Once you reach here you will see lot lot lot of tourist busy eating their seafood. There is a few stall you can choose from. Depend on your liking. The lobster is huge !!!! Downside of this place is that when you are outside there will be lot of seagull trying to steal your food ! 😂
  • Pros: - Good variety of shops hosting a variety of fish and seafood. - Friendly service from pretty much all vendors. - Ample parking. Cons: - Been a fish market you'd expect to get cheaper prices, however, pricing is relatively the same as your local fish store.
