Sydney Fish Market Easter Egg-Stended Trading
One of the world's largest fish markets turns it up a notch in the lead-up to Easter.
April 15, 2019
Catering to our fierce love of seafood over the Easter period, Sydney Fish Market is extending its Good Friday trading hours so you can get your hands on the freshest ocean treats for your long weekend meals.
Each year, the Fish Market — which will be relocated to a $250 million new site come 2023 — capably serves over 50,000 buyers looking to snag a deal, with a whopping 650 tonnes of seafood expected to be sold throughout the day.
Between 5am and 5pm on Friday, April 19, 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.
It's not only fish here, though. You can also peruse cold meats and cheeses at the deli for a grand charcuterie platter, pick up wine from the bottle shop or stop by the on-site bakery for hot cross buns. Or, if you're a a bit of an Easter Sunday traditionalist, you can even pick up lamb from the butcher. They sell basically everything here.
If you miss out on Friday, the Fish Market will also be open for its regular hours — 7am–4pm — for the remainder of the long weekend.
The Sydney Fish Market is open from 5am–5pm on Good Friday and 7am–4pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
