Pre-Christmas Sydney Fish Markets shopping at midnight - 23 Dec 2008

Midnight Seafood Shopping

If you want the best choice of seafood for Christmas then you can't really go past Sydney Fish Markets. Best to take advantage of their 24 hour pre-Christmas shopping in the middle of the night. Midnight is still very busy but the alternative during the daytime would be massive chaos of crowds and no parking. Here's a few things I've picked up for the family Christmas lunch this year.

Other visits to the Sydney Fish Market:
23 Dec 2011 – Pre-Christmas Shopping
23 Dec 2010 – Pre-Christmas Shopping, Oysters, Mussels
23 Dec 2009 – Pre-Christmas Shopping
26 April 2009 – Whitebait, Mussels, Oysters, Prawns, Calamari
23 Dec 2008 – Pre-Christmas Shopping

XL Green King Prawns $29.99/kg for homemade prawn cutlets

Large Sydney Rock Oysters $16.90/dozen. Unfortunately my preferred Coffin Bay and St Helens weren't readily available.

Yarra Valley Salmon Roe $23.99/100g to top oysters with squeeze of lemon

Hervey Bay Scallops $19.99/dozen to be topped with garlic, white wine, tomato and basil recipe from Good Living

Pont L'Eveque French cheese $89.90/kg (bought $13 piece), it's French and expensive so that means it's good, right?

Fetta Stuffed Gourmet Olives $42.90/kg

Moroccan Spiced Green Olives $29.90/kg

Hi chocolatesuze, xmas shopping at midnight is like visiting a normal Saturday rush for the Sydney Fish Markets.

Hi Annie, I'll be sure to take photos of the Christmas lunch spread.

Hi Belle, yes brave and perhaps a little stupid hehe. But I would never go during the day, it would be too stressful and horrific.
