The market itself is huge and sells a variety of groceries from poultry to vegetables, fruits and even shirts and souvenirs. Overall, a nice place to walk around.

This is a wonderful market selling pretty much everything. Lots of food vendors of all types as well. What we found the best were the dedicated areas for organic food, seafood, cheeses and breads. It is really big though, we gave up trying to go...More

We visited the Markets before heading out of the city and so thought there were so many of the same stalls clothing, bags etc and they all looked a little drab and dirty. The fresh food area was a little messy and smelly with rotting...More

I went to the market not expecting a whole lot! It’s absolutely amazing! You have to make sure to get there before 12 as some vendors then start to leave so you don’t get the whole experience. We arrived for 9am when it just opened...More

Had a bit of time to spare and it was spent well at the market. Had a lovely ham and cheese toasted croissant and a hot coffee.

A lesson in how to be a Melburnian - wander around this historic market clutching a smoking, meaty bratty roll for breakfast at Bratwurst Shop.

.... just okay. There are a lot of other markets around the same as this one. The architecture of the heritage building was nice, but other than that, it wasn't anything spectacular!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Hi, yes there are a few places in which you can buy leather at the QVM. Best to check each stall out first to see what you would like and then see who will give you the better deal and that way you also have a better idea on... More
