Surry Hills is more casual than most markets, yet at the same time, it's the market you're most likely to run into a street fashion photographer or budding fashion designer. It really is a particularly well-dressed crowd. Surry Hills is also where you'll dig up some of the greatest things.

Held on the first Saturday of every month at Shannon Reserve on Crown Street, it's a mix of emerging designers, specially sourced vintage and people hocking their old junk. The stall-holders really put in the effort here. Someone will offer you the history of your $10 skirt as you're rifling around for cash, while others will be happy to knock up a customised pair of earrings for you on the spot, and one nice man once helped my friend carry a pile of old 60s suitcases to the car. Along with great people watching and finding hidden treasures, these markets offer up some prime dog spotting, too.
