Eveleigh Farmers' Market
Sydney is famous for its wide array of gourmet, locally grown produce and its markets. Farmers markets are a haven for the freshest produce from local suppliers. Great delis, provedores, organic grocers, food stores and halls will tempt you in for your favourite treats. The fish market, too, is a landmark in Sydney, often bustling on weekends.
Now some of Sydney’s most exciting restaurants are adding another dimension to the dining experience with providore stores right on the premises.
