Catering to our fierce love of seafood over the holiday period, Sydney Fish Market is once again pulling its annual all-nighter so that you can get your hands on the freshest ocean treats for Christmas lunch.

Each year, the Fish Market — which will soon be relocated to a $250 million new site — capably serves over 100,000 buyers looking to snag a deal. Between 5am on Friday, December 23–5pm on Saturday, December 24 in 2022, the market is yours to scout out the most sumptuous fish, king prawns, oysters and calamari for 36 hours.

It's not only fish here, though. You can also peruse cold meats and cheeses at the deli for a grand charcuterie platter, or stop by the onsite bakery and greengrocer. Or, if you're more of a northern hemisphere traditionalist, you can even pick up a turkey from the butcher.

You'll find basically everything here. If you're stuck for gifts, there are plenty of opportunities for that last-minute buy. Head to the gift shop, florist or bottle shop.

"The marathon is a signature event on the Sydney Fish Market calendar, celebrating Australia's collective love of seafood and the outstanding local produce we are fortunate to enjoy, thanks to our hardworking fishers," Sydney Fish Market CEO Greg Dyer says. "We look forward to continuing this wonderful tradition as we get closer to the opening of our spectacular new market building in just a few short years."
