Sydney's Top 5 Vintage Markets
There are a number of markets operating throughout Sydney that specialise in vintage and secondhand goods. These markets are great places to rummage through antiques and collectables, as well as retro and discounted vintage fashion.

Not only can you explore the various stalls and sample International cuisines, but you can also sit back, relax and listen to live music.

Glebe Market
Glebe is located in the inner city of Sydney, just 3 kilometres southwest from the CBD. Not only is the suburb well known for its bustling main shopping strip, full of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, but it is also quite famous for its market.

Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Glebe Public School transforms into a marketplace, filled with stalls containing everything from vintage clothing to pre-loved books, CDs and antique collectables.

Glebe Market has been in operation for more than 15 years now and has secured a reputation for being a great place to look through a variety of items, enjoy tasty food and listen to live music. As Glebe is quite a central location, it is easily accessible by either catching a bus, train or driving.

Rozelle Market
Rozelle is located in the inner west of Sydney, 4 kilometres west of the CBD.

Rozelle Market is another popular and well-loved destination for vintage and secondhand goods. Visitors can also enjoy International cuisine, as well as live music.

Not only does the market specialise in bric-a-brac, vintage clothing and jewellery and antiques, but other unique facilities are also provided such as a massage booth and tarot readings.

Paddington Market
The suburb of Paddington is located 3 kilometres east of the Sydney CBD.

Every Saturday from 10 a.m. visitors flock here to view over 100 stalls containing handmade and vintage clothing, as well as artworks, accessories and collectables. There are also many stalls selling a wide variety of cuisines and beverages.

Paddington Market is well known for its Emerging Designers Section, where all of the items being sold are Australian Made.

Como Market
Como is located in the Sutherland Shire and takes 40 minutes by train from the Sydney CBD.

The Como Craft and Antique Market is held at Como Public School every second Sunday of the month and has been in operation for over 10 years now. Visitors can expect to find unique goods, from handmade items to secondhand and vintage treasures.

The Como Craft and Antique Market is a hidden gem, as it is located in a small, quiet town rather than the bustling inner city. Having said that, the market still draws an impressive crowd so be sure to get there early to view the large variety of items being sold.

Kirribilli Market
Kirribilli Market has been running since 1974 and the suburb is located 3 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD.

On the second Sunday of each month you can visit the popular Kirribilli Art and Design Market, as well as the Fashion Market, both of which are easily accessible by public transport.

The Art and Design Market is located inside the Burton Street Tunnel and features a large variety of original artworks, ceramics, homewares and fashion.

The Fashion Market is held outside The Green and features a wide range of vintage and retro clothing, shoes and accessories, as well as bargain designer clothing.

Both the Art and Design Market and the Fashion Market begin at 9 a.m. and finish at 3 p.m.

I went to Como market this May 2013. It was mostly crafts and new items being sold. There was also some stalls selling honey, gozleme , books and bread/candies.

I only saw about 3 stalls selling used items. One was selling vintage photos, another some used vintage jewelry and another some vintage jewelry. MOST OF THE STALLS ARE NOW CRAFTS. I would not call this market an antique market anymore.
