Everything buyable in Melbourne is available here. Market is kept clean. Good seperation of each area (garments, food, gifts etc). Venue would benefit with some more toilets, speciall for those travelling with kids. Shopkeepers are friendly & helpful. Ensure to have comfortable walking shoes.

An excellent place for buying fresh vegetables and fruits. The prices are challenging.. The dealings are fair. You got to see many varieties of vegetables which probably you did not come across in your life. The fish and meat market is another place to relish...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
