The grand Queen Victoria Market building dates back to the 19th century and the surrounding market space spans an entire seven city blocks, making it a magnet for people after fresh-food shopping, clothing, jewellery, arts and crafts, souvenirs and more.
The largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere, Queen Vic is a Melbourne institution and the old market hall is home to quality butchers, bakers and master chocolatiers. Bring along your shopping bags and do not forget your wallet for what is in store.
