Queen Victoria Market is an authentic, bustling, inner-city market that has been the heart and soul of Melbourne for 140 years. Home to over 700 small businesses, it’s a great place to discover fresh and specialty product, hand-made and unique products, great coffee and food, souvenirs and clothing.

Shopping at the Market has always been one of life’s great pleasures. It’s not just the abundance of fresh food, it’s the friendly banter with the traders, the vibrant and multicultural atmosphere, the special events and festivals, and the sense of belonging that comes with it.

The Night Market, which runs on Wednesday nights is your favourite mid-week hangout for food, drinks, music, shopping and fun. The Market also offers a historic venue space with a range of indoor and outdoor spaces.
