“It’s OK because it’s really close-by, and it’s cheaper than all those convenience stores. Sometimes they have cheap boc-choy and mushrooms, but mostly the produce isn’t good, and it doesn’t stock the things I need.”
Sydney Fish Markets
“It’s funny, I live in Ultimo but I never think to go here. Maybe if the entrance was more inviting for people on foot, I might remember to buy fish more often."
"Well, it’s definitely the cheapest place to get produce. Also the most fun. The plastic bags bug me though – it’s hard not to leave without 10 plastic bags that you said no to, but somehow ended up with anyway."
Coles World Square
"Sometimes I stop by on the way home from the city. I try not to shop at Woolworths or Coles but sometimes it’s the only way. Carrying shopping bags from the city to Ultimo is pretty exhausting though.”
“This place is crowded and hard to find things in. Don’t go there for the produce, but you can get some good stuff if you’re into Asian groceries. And the homewares are cheap – Chinese crockery, woks, pans, mortar & pestles, all that.”
Broadway Shopping Centre
“This is the most obvious option for me – free parking, lots of different stores… but Harris Farm’s delights are sending me bankrupt, and I regularly get disoriented and confused in the car-park maze. If I walk there … it’s a mean uphill journey, with heavy green bags, back into Ultimo.”
“I never go here! But I really should. I guess it’s a bit of a trek back into Ultimo, but I bet is has better produce than the IGA in Haymarket. It looks big.”
Pyrmont Farmers Markets
“I wish I got up early enough to remember to go down there…”

Seafood Platter ($12.50) of 3 oysters and 3 prawns looks like a yummy lunch idea to me 😍 @nicholasseafoodsydney @sydneyfishmarket #Pyrmont #sydneyfishmarket #nicholasseafoodsydney #oysters #prawns #SFFoysters #SFFprawns #SFFsydneyfishmarket #seafood #lategram #latepost (at Nicholas Seafood)
