Sydney fish market food guide
Sydney Fish Market is a major tourist attraction for its abundance of fresh tasty seafood you can buy raw or cooked.
But it’s not a tourist trap, many locals go there to buy their seafood as well. My mum included. She loves buying fresh blue crabs here.
So here’s my guide for anyone who plays to go for the best possible experience.
HOW TO GET THERE
You can drive, but if driving isn’t an option then take the light rail from central station to “fish market”.
The market is just across the road from the station. It won’t be very obvious unless you go in the morning, and then you may see the crowds of people walking in the same direction to the market.
WHEN TO GO
Go before noon, because things start dying down after noon.
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF
There’s so many birds that are use to humans at the market. A.K.A they’re going to steal your food at any chance presented to them.
The best way to avoid this is to not sit outside, however that’s easier said than done because most of the seating is outside.
…just keep you eyes out for birds.
THINGS TO TRY
There’s honestly so much to choose from, but I would say if you do come to eat, get the following:
- Sashimi, the fish sold at the market is always fresh which makes the sashimi deliciously sweet.
- Grilled fish and other Aussie classics. Anything traditionally eaten by Australians are going to taste really good. Such as a grilled barramundi.
