When it comes to markets, I love them and like to go to as many different ones as I can.
I visited Prahran Market and was disappointed.
South Melbourne market is so much better and even QV market is above Prahran.
I prob won't be back, been there done that.

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review, Annie.

We're definitely a smaller market than the others in Melbourne and our focus is on gourmet food only which can come as a surprise to first-time visitors. That said, if you're a food lover, you'll be in your element because what we lack in size, we make up for in variety, hard to find specialty items, the best quality, superior taste and friendly traders!

South Melbourne and QVM are both excellent Markets; we're very lucky in Melbourne to have all of the Markets that we do!

Kind regards,

Market Management.

Great selection of fresh and organic produce. Excellent selection of artisan bread & deli items. I love visiting the market whenever I get the opportunity.

Great to sit at the cafes & listen to live entertainment. You won’t be disappointed to spend your weekends here shopping or catching up with mates.

Thanks for the lovely review K R! We're incredibly lucky to have such a great range of fantastic traders selling everything from freshly baked Gozleme to locally produced milk to rare, imported cheese - the market literally is a food lover's paradise!

Market shopping is all about atmosphere and live music really does create a beautiful buzz. Relaxing in our Market Square with a bite to eat and maybe a cheeky glass of wine while listening to live tunes is a seriously nice way to finish your weekly produce shop!

We hope to see you back here again soon.

Kind regards,

Market Management.

Place with lots of fresh produce. Mainly that, nothing much else. Good to see many organic produce at the market as well. Enjoyed the scent of freshness once stepped in!

This market is amazing - fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, bread and an enormous selection of smallgoods and cheeses that I have seen in a long while. Beautiful flowers also and cafes and stalls selling food from every culture you can think of. Either before or after you have stocked your pantry, take the time to sit with a coffee, or something stronger, and listen to the live music provided on weekends. A great place to chill out with family or friends....four legged ones included!
