queen victoria market, melbourne

There is a reason why this is the best market for fresh produce in Melbourne. Because it is the best market for fresh produce in Melbourne! The iconic Queen Vic market is the largest open air market in the southern hemisphere and it is positively buzzing with buskers, banter and and bargains at every turn. With a dedicated (art deco) deli hall, fantastic meat hall, seafood section and a huge selection of the freshest veg. Mamma says it is a wonderful place to come for the weekly shop, but also to experience this fantastic market atmosphere.  Not only is this a great place for locals to visit but an excellent spot to take visitors for some delicious food and souvenirs.  Oh and don't forget to grab yourself a few hot jam donuts for the ride home!

Mamma's special mentions: Need to get the little ones out for a play? Head to Royal Park 'Nature Play' in Parkville. This playspace is perfect for all types of weather.
