The Rocks in Sydney is a place where the European settlers first stepped ashore in 1788. It is a short walk from Circular Quay, a tourist hotspot where the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House are located. A farmer's market takes place at the Rocks from Friday to Saturday while the Rocks Market happens every Saturday and Sunday from 10am - 5pm. The streets are closed to traffic during these 2 days and tourists from around the world converge here to get the best buys of indigenous artwork, beautiful handcrafts and savour sweet treats such as home made fudge, roasted nuts and honey. Just like Paddington market, the mix of stalls here represent some of the best of Australian handcraft and design . When you are done with the whole bout of shopping, have a glass of homemade lemonade and sink your teeth into some crunchy corn.
