Queen Victoria Market

This famous market is spread across 7 hectares under the shelter of a massive shed. The meat hall is at the Elizabeth Street end, while outside all manner of fruit, vegetable and herb stalls extend towards the horizon. On weekends, Saturdays in particular, the aisles are crammed with shoppers from all over Melbourne, and the wide range of clothing and souvenirs make this a hot spot for tourists as well. Main entrance cnr Elizabeth and Victoria sts;(03) 9320 5822; open 6am–2pm Tues and Thurs, 6am–5pm Fri,6am–3pm Sat, 9am–4pm Sun.

On Wednesday evenings during summer, the ‘Queen Vic’ takes on a whole new character with the Suzuki Night Market . At these times it feels more like a festival than a market, with live music, international food and a healthy dose of alternative-clothing and craft stalls.
