Haymarket, Market City

Market City at Haymarket, is located just south of the Sydney central business district. It contains a produce and flea market known as Paddy's Markets, the shopping centre Market City on three levels including cinemas and restaurants and a skyscraper apartment complex above called The Peak. Sydney's produce markets were originally located here until 1980 when they moved to the western suburb of Flemington. The Edwardian architecture of the outer walls of the vegetable market, built in 1909, was preserved and restored.


  1. I love the incongruity of the architecture in these few blocks, Jim. To walk the area is just bedlam though with peddlars, buskers, trams and pedestrians not to mention cars.

    My dad used to buy fruit and veg from Paddys in the period immediately following WW2.

  2. A nice way to compare time.

    Wonderful first advent Sunday for you.

  3. Nice to see the old incorporated into the new and done so well. The highrise looks like it's going to gobble up the whole thing soon. :)
    The red sandstone rock is just grand.

  4. As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting called “5 on the fifth” where You can either take 5 random pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of December (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme.

    Just post your pictures on your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site – I then update the entry so the world has your link. Remember to mention my blog on your own blog so that your visitors get to see the other contributions.


    Here’s a link to my blog:

Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
