Carriageworks is a multi-arts urban cultural precinct that showcases contemporary art and performing arts, as well as being available for private and corporate hire for uses such filming, festivals, fairs and commercial exhibitions. The largest such venue in Australia, it is a cultural facility of the NSW Government, and receives support from Create NSW and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts. The centre has commissioned new work by Australian and international artists, and has been home to eight theatre, dance and film companies, including Performance Space, Sydney Chamber Opera and Moogahlin Performing Arts, and the weekly farmers' market has been operated for many years.

On 4 May 2020 the company that operates the venue declared it would be entering voluntary administration and closing, citing an “irreparable loss of income” due to government bans on events during the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent negative impact on the arts sector.

  • The Saturday markets at Carriageworks are great but very busy! Be prepared for lines and crowds. Great local produce and products though so it's worth it! Keep an eye out for exhibitions that are on, some are free and really great!
  • Cool place to have a market. This used to be an old railway workshop and organizers have creatively turned this big space into a market for farmers and stall holders. Lots of artsy stuff and my favorite are the homemade and handmade products. Plenty of mouth watering food from various ethnicity. Worth a visit.
