Sydney’s top weekend markets  
Sydney's top weekend markets
Arts, gastronomy, fashion, places and people make up a city's identity and weekend markets have long been an intrinsic part of Sydney's local colour. Their clothes, food stalls, music and ambience are the perfect escape for the people's daily routines and the perfect excuse to get together with friends and have a joyous time. Each market has its own identity and offers products for all tastes and whims. Here is a list of outstanding weekend markets:
1) Paddington: is a popular and eventful market located on Oxford Street. In this place, visitors can eat food that are treats to the palate, or even get a good neck massage. Also, shoppers can get handmade clothes, apparel and jewellery from local designers.
2) Glebe: is located in the inner area of Sydney, thus it enjoys the city's vibrant spirit. This market is one of the most established markets of the city. Nevertheless, far from being traditional, conventional and mainstream, its character and style are actually alternative. This market is the meeting point for local fashion designers, and visitors can find clothing and jewellery, and is widely known for its vintage clothing. For those looking for another kind of shopping, CDs and books are also available.
3) The Rocks: is located at the north end of George Street. This market offers a large range of arts and craft that are mainly directed to tourists. In this market, visitors can buy dresses and bags designed by the stallholder, original artworks and prints.
4) Bondi Beach: offers similar items to Paddington but cheaper and at a lower quality, and there are no food stalls. However, for people looking for local designs and vintage clothes, this is the place to go. This market is located at Bondi Beach Public School.
5) Rozelle: is a second-hand market located at Rozelle Public School, Darling Street, Rozelle. Its origin dates back to 1991 and since then it has developed a reputation for being Sydney's favourite antique, collectable and second-hand market. Here, people can find all sorts of things from furniture, bric a brac, records and books to vintage clothing and jewellery. For the visitors' pleasure, they can also get a massage there, eat international food and have someone read the tarot cards for them.
