I like coming here for a change. The aisles are a bit narrow, and the market is not large but the food section is great. You can get almost anything. A little bit more expensive than Queen Vic but good quality. Lots of deli selections.

South Melbourne Market is definitely worth not one visit but many! Been there before and got back this Saturday for the bbq commemorating the 150th anniversary. Heaps of specialty stalls or stores with the most amazing delicacies, from cheeses to small goods or fish and...More

You can ALMOST find every type of ingredient here, so great for cooking aficionados. There's also a reasonable selection of the usual market stalls as well as a few exclusive ones. On-site parking is available. Great food choices for those seeking coffee, breakfast & lunch,...More

South Melbourne
South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous
market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged
fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens
and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole
neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the
hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays
of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in,
a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen

Not that I'm aware of but there is a Nutt specific shop who may be able to meet your need.
Hi, would anyone be so kind to enlighten me the difference between South Melbourne market vs Queen Victoria market? In terms of product offering and price, which is better ? (as I may only have time to visit one) Also, does the free tram bring me near South Melbourne market?

My wife and I prefer the South Melbourne Market. It is more compact hence easy to get around. There are less clothing shops than at the Vic Market, but a sufficient choice for us. Equally, the food stores especially the... More
