As Sydney’s original art and craft market Paddington Markets celebrates 40 years as the go-to destination for unique, quality, hand-made products direct from the maker.
Every Saturday from 10am, rain or shine Paddington Markets has been open since 1973.
Paddington Markets started as a market to encourage local fashion designers, craftspeople, jewellery makers and artists. The market has over 150 unique stalls filled with creative fashion and accessories, beautiful craft works, luscious smelling soaps and candles and pictures that inspire.
You will not find these Australian designed and crafted products in any shopping mall and many of our products are exclusive to Paddington Markets.
Take a look at our Emerging Designers Section in the Courtyard of the Market or try our regional cheeses and local bread. Relax under the trees with your coffee and lunch and then buy some flowers or a bonsai to brighten up your home.
Paddington Markets is a community based market supporting local people passionate about their craft and the local community.
At Paddington Markets we believe …
- People matter and their passion and creativity should be encouraged
- It’s worth supporting small Australian business and designers
- Unique good quality local products should be promoted
- That with a generous heart and a passionate spirit you can change the world.
