A Guide to Western Sydney's Best Food and Produce Markets

Now that there's finally some sunshine and sunlight over in Sydney (meaning it's safer to come out of your securely locked Western Sydney homes fellow West Things readers), it's the perfect time of the year to spend your days marvelling at the single most best thing in life: food. Perhaps you'll even spend said marvelling time alongside the second most best thing in your life: the bae (and for all you hashtag single life readers that might be a bacon and egg roll at a good market).

But Sarah, I hear you cry, the trek to Marrickville Organic Markets or Everleigh Farmers Markets is far too great and I'm not about that life. I get it guys. I get that Sydney trains dealt you all a bad card and scheduled track work on the Western Line again. That's why the West Things team have put together our pick of some of Sydney's finest food and produce markets out here in Western Sydney. Tables stacked with loaves of bread. Baskets brimming with the finest fruit and vegetables. Barbecues sizzling with street food. It's an Instagraming whore's dream come true and we've put it all in the one location for you - check it out below!
