Queen Victoria Market

Since 1878, this historic market has been a central part of Melbourne city life. About half of the market continues to be devoted to the sale of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, and delicatessen products, while the remainder is now given over to stalls carrying everything from clothes to Aboriginal crafts.

It gets even better on Sundays, when Queen Street is closed to traffic, allowing the market to spill out into the road. The street is covered against the rain, and underneath the awnings you'll find outdoor dining, children's activities, and more.

Hours are as follows:

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 6am to 2pm
  • Wednesday: Closed
  • Thursday: 6am to 2pm
  • Friday: 6am to 5pm
  • Saturday: 6am to 3pm
  • Sunday: 9am to 4pm

Getting there

Catch any tram heading north along Elizabeth and William Streets, and alight at the corner of either Franklin Street or Victoria Street. If you're riding the free City Circle Tram, alight at the corner of La Trobe and Elizabeth Streets, then walk north to the market.
