Sydney has a Christmas market or craft fair for every taste and everyone on your list this season. Whether you enjoy big, busy markets or smaller and more intimate markets, Sydney has something for you. There are Christmas night markets, weekday, and weekend Xmas markets, so you should be able to find something to fit in with your schedule.

We love a good market, especially one with the word ‘Christmas’ attached! We have taken a giant red sack in search of the jolliest Christmas markets in Sydney.  We have found plenty of family friendly markets that have shopping, food, entertainment and sometimes even a visit from the big man himself – Santa! A local Christmas market might be the best place to pick up a Secret Santa gift too! The suburbs are full of local markets or you can travel into the CBD for a great selection.

Keep your eyes peeled for Christmas carols at the markets, sometimes these are combined!
