The food market in Sydney

Let’s focus on the food market in Sydney. It’s located next to the CBD area, and it’s close to the ferries and trains of Circular Quay. Every Friday, locals and tourists come to this spot to enjoy in the sights, scents and sounds of street food. Melbourne has the Food Truck Park, Sydney has the Rocks food market.

The historical significance of the place is also impressive since this is the oldest present in the city, where cobblestone streets are still a welcomed sight. The rich and diverse culture is seen everywhere, including the food selection. Sydney’s rich and varied cultural heritage brings out the best possible mixes and fusions of spices, ingredients, flavours and recipes. It’s rather easy to find something for everyone in the market.

What's more, you can find other pleasures besides food. There are musical shows and eccentric shops that sell decorative paintings or locally-designed fashion. If you’re committed in your search, you can even find unique, one-off items in some of the stalls scattered around the market.

As long as you’re in Sydney, the Rocks food market is a “must-see” spot where all of your senses will relish in the scrumptious food nearby. On each corner of the market, there is a new and delicious dish you can try!
