Market Focus: Paddy's Markets

What kind of products are available at your market? 

There are around 1,000 stalls at each of the Paddy's locations (Haymarket and Flemington). There's always a huge range of fresh fruit and vegetables to be found, as well as seafood, meats, deli and smallgoods. Once the food shopping is done, you can find just about anything else with stallholders selling a variety of goods including souvenirs, watches, jewellery, clothing, shoes, leather goods, bags and luggage, sunglasses, cosmetics, mobile phone accessories, art, crafts, specialty teas, homewares and much more. For that flea market vibe, check out Paddy's Swap and Sell Market at Flemington on Saturdays.

What's the design/atmosphere of your market? On any given day you'll see all sorts of people in the markets, young, old and everything in between. It's a great place for local shoppers, tourists, bargain hunters and families, with cooking demonstrations and kids' entertainment taking place regularly.

How does your market stand out from other markets? There's a lot to see at both Paddy's locations; give yourself time to walk around so you can see what's available. Don't forget to check out the Paddy's App for special offers and promotions.
