Queen Victoria Market is more than just Melbourne’s shopping mecca - it’s an historic landmark, a tourist attraction and an institution for Melburnians. This vast and vibrant centre of trade and commerce was officially opened on 20 March 1878 and has served consumers needs for more than 120 years. Last year the Market had over 9.5 million visitors.
Spread over 7 hectares, it is the largest open air Market in the southern hemisphere. As the Queen Victoria Market is a traditional open-air market, it is recommended that warm weatherproof clothing (in winter) will make your visit more enjoyable. Almost one thousand traders sell everything from exotic Australian fruit and vegetables and local and imported gourmet foods, meat, fish and poultry to hardware, manchester, clothing and authentic Australian artefacts and souvenirs.
