Usually, if you've been to one Christmas market, you've been to them all. But not this year. In the lead up to Christmas 2017, Sydney has diversified its festive offerings. Along with the usual knick-knacks and gourmet packaged produce, you can hone in on specific interests at a gin market, load up on goods from your favourite eateries at Carriageworks or enter The Grounds' festive wonderland for cake decorating tips. If you're done with buying for humans (or just need some pup time before you head home for Christmas), the Super Furry Festive Market will be for four-legged legends only. We'll take that over a crowded shopping centre any day.
