Put ice in the esky and get ready for the annual Sydney Fish Market 36 hour seafood marathon. The popular event will begin at 5am on Monday December 23 and go straight through, non-stop until 5pm Tuesday December 24. Many Sydneysiders have learnt to save their festive feast shopping especially for this event, where they can not only pick up fresh prawns, fish, octopus, squid, muscles, oysters and hundreds of other species of seafood, but meat, fruit and vegies, freshly baked bread, groceries, alcohol, sweets and pretty much everything they need for a big Christmas gathering. There are even some last-minute gift opportunities.
There will be a special appearance from Santa on Monday the 23rd from 11am – 1pm and on Christmas Eve from 10am – midday to spread plenty of Christmas cheer.
Limited car parking is available at the market at a flat rate of $5 for two hours.
Additional parking will be available from Monday 23rd – Tuesday 24th December at the Sydney Secondary College for a flat rate of $5 for two hours. Entry is via Pyrmont Bridge Road.
You can also get the light rail, buses and ferry.
