Owner description: Melbourne's iconic Queen Vic Market turns 140 years old this year, and is the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere. Home to over 600 small businesses, discover a variety of clothing, jewellery and souvenirs and revel in the atmosphere of the heritage listed Meat, Fish and Dairy halls. Queen Victoria Market is also a great place to enjoy a meal, grab one of Melbourne’s best coffees and enjoy a truly unique shopping experience. Be sure to participate in the 2-hour Ultimate Foodie Tour, designed specifically for food lovers. Indulge in some of the best food the Market has to offer, learn about the rich history and meet some of the colourful characters who call the Market home (bookings essential). Throughout Winter, Queen Vic Market plays host to Melbourne’s original night market. The popular Wednesday night event showcases a dazzling program of live entertainment, roving performers, artisan and hand made shopping and a large array of global street food.

What a great day looking around all the varied stalls. Even those who had no money to spend still managed a purchase. Great vakue for money and huge array of items.

Been here before , and always enjoy a couple of hours browsing the atmospheric and diverse market. Bought some veg for our Sunday dinner , some beautiful flowers and a range of gifts for family back home in the U.K. , all at good prices.
Concluded our visit with a great meal at nearby Phancy Cafe.
A really enjoyable day.

A great place to spend a hour or two, whether your looking for new clothes, shoes, nick nacks or fruit and vegies and meat and fish. Its all here. If you get the chance attend a Wednesday night market, lots of different international foods , and a great variety of music. But get there early as the lines for food can be long. (but worth the wait)
