Small collection of Farmers produce next to the Sydney Cricket Ground

These markets are open every Wednesday & Saturday and are located in the grounds of the old Sydney Show ground in what's now called the The Entertainment Quarter.

The EQ Village Markets is Sydney’s finest producers market, offering a wide range of top-quality produce at a great price in one very convenient location (10mins from Sydney’s CBD). Enjoy the lively atmosphere and the abundance of products that are hand-picked and crafted with love by our many stallholders.

Fruit and vegetables are in plentiful supply, including hydroponic and organic. Meliora Farm specialises in seasonal oranges and avocadoes, with many other citrus varieties available throughout the various seasons. Helen Roche and her staff will happily offer samples of the juicy apple varieties grown on her Adelong farm, along with seasonally available cherries and stone fruits.

If you have a sweet tooth, Albert's delicious crepes and waffles at Le Creperie are well worth making the trip for. Also pop by The Cupcake Princess, My Muffin Tops or Anastasia’s Greek Biskota, for that perfect little treat.

Bring the family for a relaxed lunch, selecting from international hot foods such as chorizo rolls from Mojo Picon, Turkish gozleme or delicious Ethiopian pancakes to name a few.IMG_3329.jpg

some really good coffee with at least three on offer at the EQ. Local company Toby's Estate is fast gaining a reputation for their smooth blends, while Ivan and Linda at Café East Timor are always ready with a smile and a great cup of their Fair Trade 3 Amigos blend.

Keeping the kids entertained is easy too with our Animal Farm situated towards the end of the market, there every Wednesday and Saturday (weather permitting).

Visitors to the precinct on Market Days also enjoy two hours free car parking, and really that's about all you will need if you are driving, as the area you have to cover is really only 50mts wide by 100 mts long.
