Haymarket, Paddy's Markets

This hand painted sign is on the wall of a Hay Street entrance of Paddy's Markets, in the inner city suburb of Haymarket. It is part of a series of murals designed by a local artist David Doyle to mimic some of the past advertising signs. Originally known as the Vegetable Market building, it was built in 1909 in the Edwardian architectural style and the façade was preserved. Paddy's Markets have operated in Haymarket since 1834.


  1. Great sign, great colours. The symbols (plane, car etc) are more modern than the 1909 date.

    1. There are a few of these signs around the markets recreated from different eras. I have some more to show, down the track.

  2. Nice vintage looking sign. The market seems worth a visit!

  3. What beautiful signage. Hand painted signs are a treasure nowadays as technology has taken over many such tasks.

  4. Been to this market, but I don't remember seeing this sign. Love the colors!

  5. Great sign.
