Melbourne’s oldest food markets, the Prahran Markets, are a local favourite and can be found just off Chapel Street. There you can peruse multicultural flavours and buy fresh bread, produce, seafood and meat, as well as street food snacks like cheesy Turkish pastry and falafel.
If fashion is your weakness, treat yourself to the colourful quality of Gorman, the street wear at Fat, the minimalist designs of Cylk, the specialty denim of Dakota 501 and the Scandinavian style of Dansk, as well as wares from the many other Chapel Street boutiques.
Retail hours in Chapel Street are generally from 10am Mondays to Saturdays, and 11am on Sundays. Closing time is generally 6pm, with the exception of 8.30pm close on Fridays and 5.30pm close on Sundays.
The Prahran Market is open from dawn to 6pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
