On every Saturday morning, the streets around Circular Quay are filled with the sights and smells of market stalls, and the sounds of locals and tourists alike enjoying the products provided and the entertainment around the area.
Typically the easiest way to get to Circular Quay is through the Sydney train network, with trains from all over Sydney running to CircularQuay. Once you get off the trains, you are immediately hit with the sounds of street buskers and performers, including guitar players to contortionists displaying their skills for the entertainment of all visitors. And if your lucky, majestic cruise liners will also be on display, casting their shadows around the dock, filling the area with tourists from every part of the world.
As you walk up towards the stalls, the hustle and bustle of the owners promoting their wares and buyers haggling the prices can be heard through out the streets. The stalls themselves contain a wide range of products, from sheepskin bags, to a wide array of jewellery and local art, and the food is abundant.
The last time I personally walked through these markets I was drawn into buying a sheep skin bag for my girlfriend, which has since proved itself to be an excellent purchase. There are also many samples in all the different food stalls, one particular stall I recommend would be the The Chilli Factory, with testers from the mildest to the hottest chilli sauces on display. For all the thrill seekers, I would suggest trying their hottest chilli sauce, which caused my throat to burn for 10 minutes afterwards.
Overall I was entranced by this cultural experience, surrounded by people from all over Australia and even the world. It is a wonderful experience for anyone wishing to see the people and products of Sydney.
