Queen Victoria Market


Queen Victoria Market

Queen Victoria Market is more than just a Melbourne shopping mecca - it’s an historic landmark, a tourist attraction and a local shopping institution.

This vast and vibrant centre of trade and commerce was officially opened on 20 March 1878 and has served consumers needs for more than 120 years.

The Vic Market as it is known by Melburnian's is a great place to get a feel for Melbourne's diverse cultures.

Spread over 7 hectares, it is the largest open air Market in the southern hemisphere. Almost one thousand traders sell everything from exotic Australian fruit and vegetables and local and imported gourmet foods, meat, fish and poultry to hardware, manchester, clothing and authentic Australian artefacts and souvenirs.

Wine tasting is conducted Sunday afternoons, providing a great opportunity to try some of the world class wines produced in many regions throughout the state. The market is the most popular visitor attraction in Victoria, and guided tours are available Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.

In its 120 plus years, Queen Victoria Market has had a colourful and sometimes controversial history. During that time, the site has been a cemetery, a Livestock Market and a Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market.

The Queen Victoria Market was officially opened on 20 March 1878.
