Markets in Sydney
Concierge.com's insider take:
Weekends in Sydney see two significant fashion pilgrimages. On Saturdays, bargain-hunters head to Paddington Markets, a bustling collection of stalls selling the gamut of handmade goods, from cutesy children's clothes to Indian cushions, one-off jewelry designs to breezy summer dresses. Many of Australia's leading design talents—like Lisa Ho and Dinosaur Designs—got their start here, and you can bet at least a few of your fellow shoppers will be scouts on the hunt for the next big thing. Come Sunday, everyone is heading down to Bondi Beach, and not just for the surf. Bondi Markets is the place to pick up a vintage one-off for a song. You'll also find boho jewelry, housewares, and plenty of budding fashion designers.
