Rozelle Markets began on the grounds of Rozelle Public School in 1991. Little did the organisers know at the time that this markets would become a real rags to riches success story in Sydney's Inner West.
At the front entrance on Darling Street
This weekend market was once dubbed a junky, trashy type of market - yet today you can't keep the crowds away; irrespective as to whether or not you come here on a Saturday or on a Sunday. This is one classic bric-a-brac, second hand flea market. You will be surprised what you might be able to find here. Then again, you can now have a massage here too.
Clothes in abundance
As with the markets itself, the grounds of Rozelle Public School has received a beautiful facelift. Find yourself on Darling Street, and you will find some beautiful artworks perched atop the school entrance available for sale. Walk through the main gate, and dumplings await your hungry tummy - that is if you're hungry at the time of course. Otherwise Rozelle Markets are situated near many beautiful cafes and restaurants where people want to be seen hanging out.
One person's trash is definitely another person's treasure here
If you love buying books, you will have a great time at Rozelle Markets. You will be surprised. Many of the books available for sale are not old and faded. Newer books are also available. Yesterday (as at the time of writing this) I discovered a brand new Adriano Zumbo cookbook, as well as Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love available for sale at insane prices.
The kids can use the play equipment too
A great haven for clothes and jewellery lovers too. Changing rooms are also available. Ample car parking is available on site. The markets now expand to the back of the school near the hall, and also to the basketball courts. If you happen to live in the area and it's an election day...tough cookies, you can't avoid Rozelle Markets - even if you try to.
Neat the basketball courts area towards Victoria Road
A Chinese spiritual healer was also in hot demand here too.
