    This market has buzzed with food and bargain shoppers since 1878. With more than 600 mostly open-air stalls, this sprawling, spirited bazaar is the city's prime produce outlet—many Melburnians come here to buy strawberries, honey, fresh flowers, imported cheeses, meat, and eye-bright fresh fish. There is a section for certified organic produce, and the beautiful Dairy Produce Hall is a plethora of cheeses, fresh pasta and breads, coffee, and deli delights. On Sunday there is less food and more great deals on jeans, T-shirts, and souvenirs. Food trucks and live music on weekends lend the market a festive air.

    A precinct of stores frequented by shoppers lured by labels, Little Collins Street is still worth a visit. In between frock shops you'll find musty stores selling classic film posters, antique and estate jewelry, and Australian opals. The glittering St. Collins Lane draws less mainstream, higher-end designers, while the eastern end of Collins Street, beyond the cream-and-red Romanesque facade of St. Michael's Uniting Church, is the Paris End, a name coined by Melburnians to identify the elegance of its fashionable shops as well as its general hauteur. Here you find big-name international designer clothing, bags, and jewelry. Its newest precinct, the 80 Collins Street, hosts such curios as sustainable cobblers and luxury eye-wear designers between cafés, new hotels, and swanky restaurants.

    Many international brands established their first Australian outlets at this major shopping mall in the city center. The mall is filled with fashion, technology, food, and art outlets, and joined via aboveground glass walkways to the Myer and David Jones department stores and the Bourke Street mall to the south, and Melbourne Central shopping center heading north. International stores include Michael Kors and Victoria's Secret, and Australian designers are well represented, including RM Williams, Scanlan Theodore, sass & bide, and Camilla. Coffee is always close to hand and there are several upmarket food courts—on the fourth floor, Tetsujin's sushi train has great city views.
