Plants, Fresh seafood, fruit and veg. Delicious coffee and so much variety of food cuisines to try. The village juicery was a favourite of mine as well as Gozleme. Not to forget also fresh grilled fish and salad.

A really nice market selling lots of lovely fresh produce and fresh flowers, to hand made soaps. I must admit I have visited The Queen Victoria market as well and slightly favour that one, but this has its own special appeal.

It’s always a pleasure visiting South Melbourne market, soaking up the atmosphere and culture. Great fresh produce, fruit, veg, meat and other products.

Part of my itinerary while in Melbourne was to go to the market for fresh seafood - there are two main markets 1) Queen Victoria in the CBD and 2) South Melbourne Market.. and if you read my previous post, it was closed when I went there on Thursday (blamed myself for not doing research on this). This time I was going to make up for it. Even before I came to Melbourne, I'd asked around on which market to visit... Queen Victoria is definitely larger in size, vibrant and more varieties, but South Melbourne has its own charms and not as packed. That was why I decided for the latter - and we had a good time exploring part of the market after the breakfast in Dead Man Espresso. While we were there, we bought some handmade artisan soaps, honey and hat. Then we headed to the fresh seafood sections - our objective? To eat the freshest seafood on offer. There were many stalls selling seafood and we chose the one that had more customers.. just to be safe as we did not know which was the best. Since we had breakfast earlier, we thought that we wouldn't be able to eat a lot but we were wrong - half lobster, sea urchin and one dozen of oysters were nicely placed on the table not long after that. The kids?? Not huge fans of seafood so these were portion for two (2) adults only. Forget the sea urchin unless you know how to clean it like the Japanese. The lobster was good but the oysters took centerstage... Small, succulent, briny and sweet!! So good that we added another half dozen to be eaten with a squeeze of lemon. Scampi, king crabs, abalone, prawns, fish and others are available at your fancy too... But by then we were stuffed to the max. If traveling a bit far is not your thing, Queen Victoria Market offers similar seafood. For me, South Melbourne Market is small yet not lack of products to offer. We Uber to Sea Life Melbourne after that where we spent the next 2 hours++ for the kids to enjoy.…
