Established in 1993, the landmark Bondi Beach markets are open every Sunday in the scenic beachfront grounds of Bondi Beach Public School. For those of you who didn’t know the bazaar style markets in Bondi is one of Sydney’s best kept secrets for knick knacks, souvenirs or that one thing you never really knew you needed until several minutes of talking to the nice man behind the stall.
The famed markets feature original designer clothing, handmade jewellery, arts, crafts, exotic imports, homewares, retro furniture, vintage clothing and a lot more. Underground designers in Sydney have long used the Bondi markets and other markets like them as a quiet way of testing the water (so to speak) with their newest designs, so it’s more than possible to find something completely unique.
Add to this the cultural mix of Bondi locals and backpackers and some of Bondi’s famous weather and there are few better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. The markets are almost used as a social mixing ground, great to meet up with your friends or even to meet some new ones. Even local not-for-profit groups and organisations have access to free stalls to assist with raising awareness and some additional revenue.
The Bondi Beach Public School even gets a slice of the action, offering light meals, cold drinks and even a sausage sizzle for those passing by to enjoy.
So if you are looking for something to do before/after going for a swim or just need to walk off your Saturday night hangover, this is an experience of Bondi culture without compare. Grab some mates, grab some stuff and have a great time while you’re at it.
