Take a tour of Sydney Markets


Interested foodies, educational groups, international visitors, study groups and those involved in the fresh produce, floristry or food industries are invited to take a guided tour through the lively atmosphere of Sydney Markets, Australia's largest fresh fruit, vegetable and flower wholesale markets.

Tours are conducted by Sydney Markets’ preferred operator, Sydney Markets Tours.

For people who have never visited Sydney Markets, deciding where to start can seem a little daunting. Taking a tour with the trained guides from Thomson Street Tours makes navigating through the early morning hustle and bustle of the markets safe and easy. The guides know how the markets work, they know their fresh produce, and they know the market people. They provide a real taste of market life.
