Queen Victoria Market

Queen Victoria Market Review

This market has buzzed with food and bargain shoppers since 1878. With more than 1,000 mostly open-air stalls, this sprawling, spirited bazaar is the city's prime produce outlet—many Melburnians come here to buy strawberries, fresh flowers, imported cheeses, meat and eye-bright fresh fish. On Sunday there is less food and more great deals on jeans, T-shirts, and souvenirs. It's open Tuesday and Thursday 6–2, Friday 6–5, Saturday 6–3, and Sunday 9–4. Market tours take you deep inside the labyrinth, and cooking classes are conducted by well-known chefs.Wandering entertainers and aromatic hot food stalls add to the vibe at the Suzuki Night Market, open 5:30 to 10 pm on Wednesday from November to late-February; this market focuses on art, crafts and gifts.
