What is Organic food? At a minimum, Organic food is grown on land which has had time
to become clear of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and herbecides. In
addition none of these are used to assist in growth. If an animal is to
be reared organically it will be fed on organic produce, not given
growth hormones or antibiotics and generally not have been subject to
Is all the food on the market Organic? No. Some of the food is Organic and some of it is conventional.
Conventional food is grown using the current prevalent agricultural
methods. We have requested all stallholders to display yellow signage
clearly indicating the status of the food they sell. If you do not see
such a yellow sign on the front of a stall please advise us..
How do I know its Organic? Your best guarantee that produce, eggs and meat is Organic is
to ask if it is Certified Organic. There are several bodies in Australia
that exist purely to audit Organic food production and/or distribution.
If in any doubt ask the stallholder and check the labelling on the
package. Stalls selling Certified Organic produce will normally make
sure you are aware it is Certified.
What about prepared food? Most of the hot food on the market is NOT organic. Other
prepared food like bread or cakes may be made using certified produce.
Stallholders who use organic ingredients will normally sign that they
have done so. It is best to ask if this is important to you.

What makes a great market? If
it’s about passionate people selling things you want to buy in a pretty
cool location then
The Rocks Markets is one of Sydney’s greatest. You know The Rocks is on
the doorstep of the CBD, but it’s slower here, and infinitely more
charming. And, really, who wants to rush when there’s so much to take
in. Where else can you buy dresses and bags designed by the stallholder,
one-off jewellery, original artworks and prints, local produce and
freshly cooked food in a place where you can feel the sun on your face
and catch glimpses of our gorgeous harbour? If you haven’t been for a
while, come back. You’ll be genuinely surprised. It's easy to get into The
Rocks on foot. Alternatively you can catch a train, bus or ferry to
Circular Quay or park in one of The Rocks' convenient parking stations.
