An utterly eclectic market place! Closed Mondays and Wednesdays, and closes at different times on other days (just to keep life exciting) so don't be caught out by this. I'm a local and only buy my seafood and meat from the meat/fish hall. Be warned...More

Whether you are here as a tourist or as a local, there is something from everyone. I always start in the food area where there are deli's, wine sellers, butchers, bakers and almost candlestick makers. Then I move up into the green grocer area -...More

Good atmosphere but extremely busy and lines for food were ridiculously long! Not as many stalls was hoping for more Wouldn’t recommend no get markets with small children too hard with the crowds

Go for the range of delicious-smelling street food, but only if you want to eat standing up in a very crowded and smoky space.

Great place to get fruits, vegetables, nuts, meat and ... wine (bring your own empty bottle to get a discount) at cheaper than supermarket prices. There is also a section where there are cafe and restaurants. Check the opening hours before you go. It wasn't...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
