Sydney Fish Market 36-Hour Marathon
One of the world's largest fish markets turns it up for Christmas.
December 05, 2017
Catering to our unique and unusual love of seafood over the holiday period, Sydney Fish Market is once again pulling its annual all-nighter so you can get your hands on the freshest ocean treats for Christmas lunch.
Each year, the Fish Market capably serves over 100,000 buyers looking to snag a deal. Between 5am on December 23 and 5pm on December 24, the market is yours to scout out the most sumptuous fish, king prawns, oysters and calamari. The best news is that it's all Australian-sourced, with half of it from New South Wales (and a further 86 percent from regional areas in NSW).
It's not only fish here, though. You can also peruse cold meats and cheeses at the deli for a grand charcuterie platter. Or, if you're more of a Northern Hemisphere traditionalist, you can even pick up a turkey from the butcher. They actually sell everything here.
If you're stuck for gifts, there are plenty of opportunities for that last-minute find. Head to the gift shop, florist, bottle shop or even grab a voucher for a cooking class at the popular Sydney Seafood School onsite.
