On a recent trip to Melbourne, I was taken to the queen victoria market on the second last day of my trip. The only regret was that it was raining and we didn't have another chance to return to the market! Start your day early and be sure to check out the operation hours as the market is closed on certain days as well as time.
There were so much to see and buy here and I think it's worth any one's visit because offers more than just the finest and freshest produce in one place but also the sight and sound of the people, making a living under one roof in this charming, lively marketplace.
I did most of my souvenir shopping here and it was an awesome experience because its a good way to chat up with the vendors and learn the Aussie culture. Besides food section, you can find souvenir stall selling keepsake, wine, pet section,handicraft, accessories etc. The layout strangely reminds me of the chaktuchak market in Bangkok, Thailand.
The fruits and Veg are mostly locally produced and very fresh! If you stay in accommodations that is furnished with kitchen facilities, you can consider cooking as an option, rather than to eat out everyday!
I say make a trip to queen vic, start your morning with a latte and do some grocery shopping and souvenir hunting in this marvelous place.
