String Bean Alley @ Queen Victoria Market
Melbourne's newest laneway has arrived at Queen Victoria Market.
String Bean Alley is now home to twenty-six independent retailers in bespoke shipping containers, providing a uniquely Melbourne shopping experience in the heart of the city's favourite market.
With a history dating back to 1936, the name String Bean Alley pays tribute to the laneway where green string beans were once sold.
