Queen Victoria Market is Victoria’s premier open-air market. It’s a thriving and vital place pulsating with life. Visitors, who come not only to shop, can be entertained by buskers who perform on the surround. The vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere of this historic site has endeared the Market to Melburnians for more than 125 years. The Market is probably best known for its huge variety of fresh produce. Almost 50% of the Market area is dedicated to the sale of fresh produce, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, chicken, seafood and delicatessen products. The remainder of the Market is used for variety and speciality goods, with Sundays being the most popular day for this category. Queen Street is closed and converted into an outdoor cafe area, with children’s rides and other activities. Our largest and most historic market offering more than 1000 stalls of produce and merchandise, including a wide range of souvenirs. A good chance to shop with the locals.
