Lots of stalls but many were the same as stalls I saw in other markets so not particularly unique. But the location makes it easy to get to when doing other things so worth a visit if you are in the area.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Head down George St towards Circular Quay, go past the Four Seasons Hotel, and about 5 mins walk you'll see Argyle St, they are all around that area. Enjoy!
