On a Wednesday evenings (5.30? on) for the summer the Victoria market opens as a giant collection of food stalls: if you are looking for interesting, unpretentious food then this place is great. The evening I went the on-the-whole-appetising food covered: Italian, Greek, Polish, Korean, Argentinean, Crepes, Juices, beer, Mongolian, Japanese, Nepalese, Indian, Chinese, Burgers, vegetarian, exotic meats and the list just keeps on going. If you can't find something you want to eat there, then there may be no hope for you. Only reservation is that the demand is so great that the queues can get pretty long - my guess is that there were several thousand people there by 7pm and it was hot and crowded - so maybe really early is a good idea That said, the servers don't muck around and service is fast even at peak times.

One of Melbourne's attraction, a must see market. A lot of fresh food, meat, vegetables, fruit. One big organic stall with different organic groceries. Also easy place to buy a well made snack or lunch.

We walked to QVM early, an hour after it opened and unless you wanted to buy food, few stalls were open. By the time we left an hour later, more merchandise stalls were setting up. If you are there for souvenirs, do go until after 10. Variety was limited as many stalls were run by the same company with identical items. However, food selection was unlimited!

A large old market very close to the CBD and well connected with trams and the tube. Foodstuff is quite reasonably priced and you must try out their farmer's breakfast at one of the Delis. Delicious!

Cold cuts are amazing and fresh. Another section has all sorts of clothes, souvenirs and other knick knacks. The selection and variety is endless.

The timings vary each day, so ensure you check out the timings online for a particular day of the week lest the market is closed.

Night market was great for Melbourne. There was lots of people there so we couldn't make the most out of it. But recommended to all
