If you happen to be in the vicinity of Queen Victoria Market, don't worry - the mixed aromas of the many wonderful foods and drinks available there will pull you there like a moth to a flame.
An invisible magnet will draw you there, your taste buds will tingle into action as you follow the songline to the trestle tables heavily laden with varied merchandise, bountiful fresh foods from the earth and oven, the coffee machines humming your particular coffee song and the doughnut vendors filling bag after bag of perfectly cooked, sugared treats we all know we should not eat but do.
These guilty pleasures all somehow become acceptable, a rite of passage, a necessity of the whole Queen Victoria Market experience. It would be a mistake to visit Melbourne without taking part in the Queen Victoria Market ritual visit of this vibrant, pulsing city where endlessly entertaining, people watching is elevated to a new art form.
