The Sydney Fish Market's Lunar New Year night market will return for a second year

After the success of last year's moonlit market, the Sydney Fish Market will keep its doors open late on Friday February 8 for one night only of colour and festive fun to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

Dine on the finest yum cha and Chinese cuisine as well as a treasure trove of fresh oysters, cooked lobsters and crabs, and a seafood barbecue from the bevy of food stalls open on the night. There will also be a range of burgers, fresh fruit and desserts available from vendors if seafood doesn’t float your boat.

The market will burst with colour with red lanterns being hung around the space, representing the colour of good fortune. Lion dancers will hit the boardwalk for an hour from 6.30pm, and red envelopes filled with tidings of prosperity and happiness will also be handed out thoughout the night, just in case you’re still feeling a little unlucky in the new year.

The Fish Market itself is open from 7am with the Night Market kicking off at 4pm. Entry is free and so is parking (from 4pm).
