Melbourne's iconic markets are back in full force. Shop local at these night markets, dog-friendly markets, book markets and more.
April night markets at Queen Victoria Market
Silent discos, lobster rolls, fresh cannoli and a roving light and mirror show. Night markets are back in a big way this autumn. Visit the Vic Market every Wednesday from 7 to 28 April for their Spaced Out series. It's just like old (well, 2019) times.
Chinatown laneway markets
This beloved late-night market in Heffernan Lane is back on Fridays and Saturdays until the end of the year. Wander beneath twinkling lanterns to discover hawker-style stalls, BBQ skewers, delicious desserts and more.
Weekend market series at Queen Victoria Market
Head to the mother of all markets every Saturday until mid-May for a brand new weekly series. Each mini market will focus on a different niche interest, from local arts and vintage wares to collectibles and gardening. There's even a market dedicated to pets!
Arts Centre Melbourne Sunday Market
Wander rows of treats and treasures at this beloved Southbank spot. Boasting a mammoth 24 stalls, this is a Melbourne institution on the edge of the CBD. From silk scarves to gourmet goodies, everything is handmade by local artisans.
Makers Market at The District
From jewellery and homewares to artisanal produce, delightful discoveries await on the last Sunday of each month. Grab a coffee from expert baristas then peruse open-air laneways for your next locally made buy. You can even bring your dog.
Melbourne Book Market
As the weather cools, thoughts turn to snuggling up on the couch with a good book. Stock up at Queen Victoria Market on weekends year-round. Choose from thousands of new and pre-loved reads, selected by some of Melbourne’s most experienced booksellers, authors and illustrators.
