Due to the often hot Christmas Day temperatures in Sydney more and more families are opting for seafood, and especially fresh prawn Christmas Day feasts instead of the more traditional hot Christmas meals.

In fact, according to the Australia Prawns Farmers Association a massive 6 million kilograms of prawns are sold in Australia during the Christmas season. To cater for this huge demand the Sydney Seafood Markets are open for 36 hours straight in the lead up to Christmas.

In addition to containing six seafood retailers, the seafood markets also contain a butcher, greengrocer, bakery, bottle shop, deli and gift shop so you can get all your Christmas produce as well as some last minute presents, from this one marathon Christmas market.

Santa often makes an appearance at these markets too.

The Rocks Christmas Markets 2022

The Rocks Christmas Markets are one of the most popular Christmas Markets in Sydney. I visit these Christmas markets every year, not only to buy unique artisanal Christmas gifts and delicious food treats for my family and friends, but also to soak up the joyous Christmas atmosphere at these markets. I love the decorated Christmas tree near the entrance of these markets.

The Rocks Night Markets and surrounding cobbled have some of the best Christmas lights and Christmas decorations in Sydney. The historic streets and laneways transform into a winter wonderland with ornament adorned Christmas trees, twinkling lights, shiny stars and even a giant snow globe.

Roving entertainers such as elves on stilts and lit up angels wander through these markets delighting shoppers. There is also live music, Christmas DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, and delicious holiday themed gourmet street food.
