Owner description: Melbourne's iconic Queen Vic Market turns 140 years old this year, and is the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere. Home to over 600 small businesses, discover a variety of clothing, jewellery and souvenirs and revel in the atmosphere of the heritage listed Meat, Fish and Dairy halls. Queen Victoria Market is also a great place to enjoy a meal, grab one of Melbourne’s best coffees and enjoy a truly unique shopping experience. Be sure to participate in the 2-hour Ultimate Foodie Tour, designed specifically for food lovers. Indulge in some of the best food the Market has to offer, learn about the rich history and meet some of the colourful characters who call the Market home (bookings essential). Throughout Winter, Queen Vic Market plays host to Melbourne’s original night market. The popular Wednesday night event showcases a dazzling program of live entertainment, roving performers, artisan and hand made shopping and a large array of global street food.

It's quite a personal opinion but I feel like this market is losing its charm. Kinda prefer south Melbourne market at the moment.

It's what you'd typically expect at a markets. The same 8 to 10 shops repeated over and over. Plenty time buy.

We shopped at Queen Victoria market for a special lunch we were having.
All seafood and fruit & vegetables beautifully fresh. So easy we got everything at one place.
Also stocked up our freezer

A must whether if this is your first visit or not. I have been there many times and never sick of the place. The place has so much to offer.

I was very dubious after the disappointment of Paddy’s markets in Sydney. No need to worry, fantastic place. Lots of variety, and the food stores are amazing.
