Paddy's Market by lloyd-art Paddy's Market by lloyd-art
Paddy's is a market area in the China town area of downtown Sydney.  paddy's was the original produce market for all of Sydney before in moved sometime in the 80s.  I remember as a kid my father taking truckloads of cauliflowers down to Paddy's three days a week during the picking season.  Although Paddy's does have a produce section, the market is predominately for consumer goods these days.

Its a wonderful building.  A perfect blend of the original architecture with the newer extensions.

Thanks.. Paddy's is a colourful area of Sydney.  If only the walls could talk, I imagine they would be full of interesting stories
