Sydney Fish Market (SFM) 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. A working fish market, SFM sources product both nationally and internationally...more
It's now turn into another tourist spot only with less value. Seafood were still fresh and lots of varieties but not cheap. You can see mainly Chinese tourists and crowded over lunch hours. Cooked food is terrible and tasted badly. Disappointed
This place should be an icon of what Sydney has to offer unfortunately it is run down dirty and the food is just not up to scratch if you can find somewhere to sit down and eat it. Come on Sydney we deserve better than...More
we took a walk to the place, very disappointed, small, commercialized, not much to see, did not enjoy the food either, and the price is higher than places we ate in the CBD.
I would not go back or recommend a friend .
Not worth all the hype. We ate the cooked food from 3 separate vendors and was disappointed with them all. Firstly the food was not fresh and appears to have been sitting in the warming draw for a long period of time. The salmon I...More
While I don’t doubt the raw seafood here is fresh, I would definitely recommend staying away from the cooked food.
Unfortunately for us, Sydney Fish Market was by far the worst experience we’ve had in Sydney. Not worth the hype at all and it’s a...More
Visited the fish markets on a Saturday around lunch time. Great variety of fresh seafood on display and plenty of places to try some cooked up for you. It was just a pity there was no seating available to have a meal while we were...More
We opted for the Brunch tour which included a tour of the market, the auction hall and lunch consisting of seafood of our choice cooked at one of the restaurants in the market. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable. He explained how the market works,...More

I go the fish markets at around 8:30 am during the weekdays to avoid the lunch time rush and buy what I need to take home. For those wishing to have lunch, no later than about 11:00 am would be a good time to look around to see what’s on offer, find a seat and then order your meal. Sitting outside, breathing in the fresh salty air, with the harbour with the fishing boats view and a tasty seafood lunch accompanied by a great Australian white wine will be remembered as a heavenly outing for years to come. Bon Appétit.

The wholesale auctions are an event in itself. The amount of seafood exhibited (second only to Tokyo) is enormous. The Dutch auction is where the retailers bid on the seafood. The seafood is fresh off the boats and the bidding atmosphere is exhilarating. This is a once in a lifetime experience and never to be forgotten.
