Handmade soaps? Local produce? Or maybe some art? Whatever it is you need, you’re sure to find it at Sydney’s historic Rocks Market.

Shopping for souvenirs may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But that’s only because you’re not doing it right. In Sydney, the Rocks Market is more than just somewhere to go for some cute knickknacks – it’s a vital part of the Sydney landscape that helps showcase local artists and artisans. 

Located on George Street right near picturesque Circular Quay, the Rocks Market happens every weekend rain, hail or shine. 

Immerse yourself in a bustling sensory experience with a festival-like vibe – delicious food, great fashion and live music throughout the day.

Designers such as Animalyser and Ann Collins offer unique textile gifts for both home and your wardrobe. Cup of Curiosity is perfect for the bling-lover who likes something out of the ordinary and Dark Side Masks…well, we’ll let you discover that one for yourself. 

While you’re in the neighbourhood, check out the infamous Argyle Oracle and see what the fortune has in told. Tarot readings, books on the paranormal and alternative philosophy and crystals in abundance – experience what the other side has to offer. 

The Rocks Market takes on place George Street near Circular Quay every Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 5pm.
