One of Sydney’s favourite annual events is on again, with Cambridge Markets holding its annual Watsons Bay Summer Market on February 4th.

Held at Robertson Park, at the ferry stop at Watsons Bay, this huge, 150-stall market is an annual festival that celebrates Summer in Sydney.

This year’s event will be as much fun as ever, with an amazing representation of small stallholders across food, fashion, art, craft, jewelry, photography, toys, pet gear, accessories, homewares, plants, eco stalls and plenty more.

World food has become a big part of the market, with delicious eats from across the globe, including Thai, Vietnamese, American, French, Italian, Chinese and Turkish cuisines, and more, represented.

“We always love this beautiful waterside market,” said Cambridge Markets organiser Madelienne Anderson. “It has such a great vibe. Because it takes place at the beginning of spring, it represents a great chance for people to throw off their winter blues, get out into the sunshine, shop, eat, relax and just enjoy being in Sydney.

“The waterfront location at Robertson Park makes it the most amazing market possibly anywhere in Australia. It’s just so great to get off the ferry and head down to the park to find this incredible array of stallholders who sell such interesting products by the harbour underneath the canopy of the giant figs. Everyone loves this market, it just works.”

Micro-retailers attending this market include Little Audey, Mymala Bikes, Wood N Art, B Nice, Mill and Hen, Love Generation, Poco Loco, Bowerbird Jewels, Alrok, Nora J and Jolly Art.

World food vendors include Halloumi Me, Just Wing It, the Cook-Out BBQ, Sofrito Paella as well as Thicc cookies, Berliner Bakery, A Fresh Tart and Plant Power Dessert Bar.

Also represented will be local distiller Bondi Liquor, plus Savannah Estate, Unexpected Quest, Finders Distillery and Azteca Margherita.

The Watsons Bay Summer Market has now been held at Robertson Park since 2017 with each event more colourful than the last. “We have many stallholders who have been attending this market since its inception and it is great to see shoppers and vendors forming a relationship that spans across years,” Anderson said. “It’s a really special way to shop. To get out of the big shopping centres and to engage with the people who make, bake and create. People love coming to these markets so they can buy something special and out of the ordinary.”

A crowd of more than 10,000 is expected to attend the market, which is outdoors and spacious. There will also be live music throughout the day.

Location: Robertson Park, 22 Military Road Watsons Bay, NSW 2030 

Date: Sun, 4 Feb 2024 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM AEDT
