The best Christmas markets in Sydney for festive food and shopping

Instead of trudging through malls, visit these festive Sydney Christmas markets for all your gifting needs


From arts and design treasure troves to European-inspired food markets, these Christmas shopping pop-ups have all the yuletide goods you need to make the silly season really special. If the thought of joining the hoards at a shopping mall in December gives you full body chills, save yourself the bother and add these quaint Chrissie markets to your hit list.

This year, you’ll find cost-of-living conscious options (such as sub $20 gift options at Le Jolly Market) alongside some real push-the-boat-out offerings.

Regardless of your holiday budget, it’s worth hitting at least one market for your annual dose of festive (if only for the fondue). 

Merry shopping.
