BEST WEEKEND MARKET

GLEBE MARKETS Family owned for 23 years, the Glebe Weekend Markets welcome over 200 stallholders each Saturday from 10-4pm. The markets bring out huge amounts of Sydneysiders to enjoy the fun, sun and maybe even a cheeky ice cream. Owners of the Glebe Markets, David and Naomi Mccumstie, attribute the popularity of themarkets to their […]

BEST ORGANIC GROCERS

ALFAFA HOUSE Newtown’s quickly building a reputation for its variety, and Alfalfa House is no exception. It houses organic produce ranging from various quinoa varieties to a great selection of fruit and vegetables. Alfalfa is not-for-profit, which means you won’t be breaking the budget to stay fit and healthy. If you want even more of […]

BEST SUPERMARKET

SUPA IGA PYRMONT Tucked away in Pyrmont is something of a rarity: a sexy looking supermarket. It helps that it sits within a white and green brick art deco building, and that through the large glass windows you can see the acres of fresh produce waiting to be snapped up. The supermarket has an extensive […]

BEST FRESH FISH

SYDNEY FISH MARKETS Nothing screams Sydney like seafood. Luckily we’ve got the best fish market in the country and one of the best in the world. Yet, there is so much more to Sydney Fish Markets than just purchasing your local seafood to take home to cook for the evening’s meal. If you don’t know […]

It’s a smallish space but staff assure us it only makes them more selective with the pieces for display. And it’s true: brightly lit and organised with clothing to the left and home wares on the right, It’s […]

BEST PET SERVICES

BOWHOUSE Bowhouse Paddington caters to everyone in the local community - two legs and four! It’s not your average pet store, being instantly recognisable by the custom graffiti puppy gracing their shopfront. Exploring the store, we discovered an amazing variety within their range, which stocked everything from raincoats catering for creatures big and small to […]

BEST BIKE SHOP

CELL BIKES It’s hard to believe Cell Bikes started in 2002 as a one-man shop in Rockdale and only went online in 2006 - because today, Cell Bikes is one of the nation’s biggest factory direct bike retailers, with not only a mind-blowing array of bikes but also cycling clothing, bike parts, accessories, tools, and […]
