“We loved it...”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Busy, quality produce at competitive prices, olives, small goods, bread, deli goods galore and the produce... Just gorgeous. And the seafood! The best market I've been to in Australia.
If you like good food then it's worth a visit

“More than just a market - an experience!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Melbourne's Queen Victoria Market is almost as old as the city itself. Once the site of the settlement's first cemetery - the bodies are still down there, we believe - it is the oldest market in Melbourne, located on the northern boundary of the CBD. If it can be eaten, you'll find it here. Seafood to die for, the freshest meat, delicacies, fruit and vegetables.

Clothing, furniture, bric a brac, it's all here. Great experience for kids, too. If you're lucky, you might even find a parking spot!

Great fun place to go, buy fresh veg. meat, fish, plus all the deli with cheese and sausages. Have lunch there with a number of different choices. Get a bargain when buying clothes.

“The food section made the place worth it”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

It was okay, I thought it would be a lot better in the actual market, it was a little more like Paddy's Markets in Sydney so I was a little disappointed.

The food section is pretty much why I'm giving it 4 stars and not 3, INCREDIBLE. Even if a little was overpriced, so worth it. It was fantastic.
