Queen Victoria Market Tours

9 reviews

Fill up at Melbourne's marketplace, the historic, fun and friendly Queen Victoria Market! Operating since 1878, Queen Victoria Market is the finest place in town to shop for fresh fruit and veg, gourmet meats and cheeses, condiments, seafood – you name it, and you’ll find it.

Melbourne is a city that loves food, and Queen Victoria Market is where gourmets, chefs, office workers, families and just about everyone who eats come to do their shopping. The atmosphere is particularly busy and vibrant on Saturday mornings, especially if a feast like Christmas or Easter is just around the corner.

On Wednesday evenings in summer, a Night Market with food and entertainment lights up the marketplace. A souvenir and trash and treasure market operates on Sundays, with children's rides and outdoor cafes.

Practical Info

Trams run to the market along Elizabeth Street, or it's around a 10-minute walk from the city-center shops. To help you get around this huge shopping area, you'll find the Deli, Fish and Meat halls facing Elizabeth Street. The covered fruit and vegetable stalls are behind the halls, stretching for several blocks, and there's a Food Court facing Therry Street.
