Five Hidden Gems at Sydney Fish Market

Whether you have set aside a whole day, or are just popping in for a quick lunch, there is so much to be found in exploring Sydney Fish Market.  

Of course, our seafood retailers are famed for providing Sydney’s freshest seafood to customers, but some visitors might not know about the myriad other dining and shopping options within our walls. Boasting sweet treats, delectable wine, fresh produce, delightful gifts, and hours of entertainment, Sydney Fish Market is a foodie’s heaven.  

With that in mind, we wanted to let you in on our tastiest and most entertaining secrets, by sharing the top 5 hidden gems of Sydney Fish Market. 


  1. Fruitezy Fruit and Juice Bar 

Make sure to head all the way down to the back of the Sydney Fish Market arcade, and around the corner, to find this haven of sweet, fruity treats. Working with the freshest selection of fruit, yoghurt, and herbs from our on-site green-grocer, this secret little bar offers freshly squeezed juices, healthy fruit smoothies, delicious Greek yoghurts, and – best of all – a huge range of chocolate-dipped fruit! 

Everyone knows how good a chocolate-dipped strawberry is, but have you ever tried chocolate-covered pineapple, banana, or watermelon? Here is your chance! 


  1. Gregory’s Bread 

If you’re the type that needs a sweet treat after a delicious seafood lunch, then you have to visit Gregory’s Bread. Their window is a smorgasbord for anyone with a sweet tooth, boasting every kind of baked good under the sun – and they’re all baked fresh daily! 

With weekly dessert specials like fresh scones, red velvet cupcakes, blood orange olive oil cake, chocolate chip cookies and chocolate eclairs, Gregory’s is a favourite of seasoned Market-goers. Don’t forget to take home a freshly baked loaf of sourdough for tomorrow’s toast – thank us later. 


  1. Fisherman’s Fine Wines 

Any connoisseur will tell you: the freshest seafood requires the finest wine. Bet you didn’t know that Sydney Fish Market has its own fine wine shop on site!  

Need a delicate Riesling to compliment your catch of the day? Or maybe some champagne to wash down your oysters? The friendly team at Fisherman’s Fine Wines is ready and waiting with expert recommendations to give your ocean-fresh seafood feast the vintage and varietal it deserves. You can even purchase a bottle of your favourite drop to enjoy onsite on the waterside boardwalk. Fancy! 


  1. The Boatshed Pyrmont 

Less a hidden gem (it's located right at the entrance to the arcade, meaning it's probably one of the first retailers you'll see on your visit!), The Boatshed Pyrmont makes this list because it is a new fixture at the Market that many visitors haven't experienced yet. Living up to the fame of the iconic Doyles restaurant that once stood in its place is a big request, that The Boatshed is meeting with gusto! 

Their menu not only features a lovely selection of light lunch nibbles, but also allows you to choose a live lobster, crab, or abalone from their tanks to have cooked for you. It doesn't get much fresher than that! 


  1. Boatshed Gifts 

A long-standing (yet often under-appreciated) fixture of the Sydney Fish Market, Boatshed Gifts has a huge range of specialty gifts and merchandise to suit any visitor. Whether you’re a local after a fun memento, or a tourist looking to take something interesting home to the family, Boatshed is packed to the brim with exciting discoveries.
