  • Iconic, traditional, vibrant and typically MELBOURNE. I love these markets. You can find everything from Dim Sims to Dogs Beds. A Melbourne institution- terrific food, great shopping for meat, fruit/veg, cakes, odds and ends. The breakfast burritos are brilliant, the donut stall is a ripper and the almond croissant from the French bakery transports you to St Germain. Brilliant place for locals and tourists.
  • Great market with a lot of fresh grocery. Not that cheap honestly but you can find niche products and good quality ingredients. Also, the restaurants and cafes offer good dishes and you can spend a nice day having shopping and eating your favourite food. Easy to park and open pretty much every day!
