Noodle market is great for food and drink, but a little on the pricey side; VicMarket night market is more informal but a more affordable option; SMelb night market is small but has a few unique stalls not just food but a variety, (PS avoid the overrated dimsims), the >530pm parking is great since parking there during the day is extortionate;
Koorie market sounds very interesting, but where is it??;
