Queen Victoria Market provides an authentic shopping experience right in the heart of the city. Listed as a National Heritage building, the market is home to hundreds of small businesses and is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere.
Swing by during the week for fresh produce, sensational coffee, delicious food (including the iconic hot jam doughnuts), homewares, gifts and more. Discover your new favourite European cheese in the Dairy Produce Hall or grab coffee and croissants at one of the many cafes.
While you’re here, make sure you visit Melbourne’s newest laneway, String Bean Alley, where more than 25 stalls featuring jewellery, art, craft, skincare, chocolate and books have found their home.
