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).

Really crowded especially for weekend. So many fresh seafood. Taste good and acceptable price. Many birds outside so I prefer to sit inside the building.

Very good fresh seafood. THe place to get some fresh and cook at your own place. Alternatively, eat at site as they cook it for you. Live lobsters and crabs and sashimi grade scampi. All can be found here.

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.
