Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne: 22 reviews and 16 photos

The Queen Victoria Market is a large outdoor market located in Elizabeth Street. It is open everyday except Mondays, Wednesdays and select holidays. Created in the 1800's the market is the largest outdoor market and boasts of a huge selection of fruits, vegetables, meats and as well as cooked food to cater to diverse tastes. The market is organized so that sellers who are selling more or less the same stuff are next to each other and shoppers can select the best deal for them. There is also a few food stalls which sell cooked food from Melbourne's multi-cultural population. From Turkish Baklavas to English Meat Pies to Italian Gelato they are all are available here. There is just something great about the atmosphere of a market of this type that a supermarket can never have.
