Sydney Fish Market (SFM) is the largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world's second largest seafood market in terms of variety outside of Japan. A working fish market, SFM sources product both nationally and internationally and trades over 14,500 tonnes of seafood annually - with up to a hundred species traded every day.SFM employs approximately fifty-seven staff to organise the weekday wholesale auction, promote Sydney Fish Market as the centre of seafood excellence and operate the Sydney Seafood School. Since opening in 1989, Sydney Seafood School has played an important part in persuading Sydney residents to eat more fish. The School is considered to be one of Australia’s leading cooking schools. Over 13,000 people come to classes each year. Visit the SSS pages for more information or to book a class.Onsite, SFM hosts six seafood retailers, a bottle shop, fruit and veg market, bakery, sushi bar, restaurants, gift shop and deli.If you would like to organise a 'Behind The Scenes' tour of our wholesale auction, please call or email us during business hours (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).

You definitely must visit here if you a seafood lover, they got fresh seafood and delicious tuna sashimi i've tried. But you might want to go here at weekdays because its too crowded at weekend.

The fish market is quite clean without bad smell. The seafood are sold at reasonable price. If you like seagulls like we do, come and order your favourite oysters, abalone, scallops, etc and dine by the harbour! I guarantee it will be an amazing experience!...More

The many vendors at the markets means you can do a few laps fretting over what to eat first. So much choice from sushi and sashimi to chines-style crabs and lobsters. Washed down with a bottle of prosecco or crisp NZ sauvignon blanc from the...More

Dear GGG.....I don't have a favourite so I will not make a suggestion of the best place 😎 There are plenty of choices in the markets. All are within easy walking distance (50/100 metres) so you can walk from one outlet to... More

I'm not sure if they serve fresh fish at that time as we went on a Sunday evening early an only the Chinese restaurant was open. But they do have breakfast cafes there.
