Sydney Fish Market offers Sydneysiders and tourists alike the opportunity to experience an authentic working fish market. It is the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world’s second largest seafood market in terms of variety outside of Japan. The market opens at 5.30am when seafood buyers arrive to check the day’s catch before the auction, where 2,700 crates (52 tonnes) are sold per day. You can choose from a wide variety of fresh seafood and much more. You can buy fresh seafood for lunch, sit at the quaint tables at the wharf and enjoy the water view with many fish boats calmly resting on the water and the Glebe island Bridge. They also offer a Behind the Scenes Tour where you can see all the action. Sydney Seafood School is also located at the market; it holds a variety of seafood cookery classes including some hosted by Australia’s leading chefs!

So, if you are looking for a place to eat the freshest possible seafood in Sydney? Look no further. Go to the Sydney Fish Market. It is a unique market of its kind. It is a bustling place where everyday seems to be a festival of seafood! The Market has many little restaurants where you could dine-in or just buy some take-away and eat at the outdoor tables along the water and enjoy the scrumptious seafood and water view.

Tip: Many health experts recommended that if you include two portions of seafood in your weekly diet, you will reduce your risk of suffering from a heart attack by 50%.  Seafood is a nutrient rich food that is a good source of protein and it is packed with vitamins and minerals that provide a whole lot of health benefits.

  1. Oh my God, I have to get there! The pictures are awesome, thank you for sharing. I am putting this amazing fish market ( and checking the cooking school) on my bucket list now 🙂 Do you know if they allow tourists right away at the opening? In Tokyo, the Fish Market opens early too, but lets tourists in at 9am only ( so I hear), unless you are part of a tour.

  2. As a Sydney local I must say we do not pay much attention to the fish markets. I think we just go in trying not to be run over by the crowds and get out! These photos of the markets are great, and shows how much we are missing!
