Supermarket near southbank

Hi everyone, staying in Melbourne at the moment (first time in oz!) and wondered if anyone knows if there are any supermarkets near southbank? Thanks a lot.

There is a Woolworths at Southern Cross Station.

There is also a smaller IGA Express at 89 City Rd which is expensive.

There is an Aldi in Market St South Melbourne and a Safeway nearby. There is always South Melbourne Market if you're looking for basic foods. But they're a little further away along city Road. You could walk it, but I think you can catch a bus along City Rd.

Probably best to catch the no 96 tram in the direction of St Kilda from outside the Casino and get off at South Melbourne Station if you want to do the market.

Cheers,

UF

Coles Supermarket is very close too. It is a real supermarket (not a 7-11 type convenience store) located on the corner of Flinders and Elizabeth st. They sell fruit & meat too at relatively normal, local prices.

I would second UFs suggestion of heading to the South Melbourne shopping area. You have a very large Coles on Clarendon St as well as the Woolworths and Aldi UF mentioned. The markets are open Wed, Fri,Sat and Sun. On these days, the market area is a Melbourne destination in itself and not just somewhere to pick up a few items. It's probably a 10 minute walk from the river or you can catch a tram down Clarendon St.

Where abouts on Southbank are you (name of hotel) and are you wanting to walk or catch a cab? There's a few proper supermarkets and a a lot of convenience stores for things like milk coffee tea bread etc. Just depends on how you want to get there and what you want.
