A cultural experience in Melbourne's South
For centuries, markets have been places where people gather, shop, bargain hunt, interact with vendors, learn about local produce, gossip, get secret recipes, discuss anything and everything and of course they buy the produce, wares and creations of stall holders.

South Melbourne Markets are situated only a few tram stops away from the CBD. This warehouse type building offers a huge variety of stalls, shops, eateries and even bars!

The atmosphere is vibrant with fresh fruits and vegetables proudly colour the outside area, whilst the inside is beautifully balanced with anything you may be searching for, including second hand books, clothing, hand crafted items, poultry, home wares, jewellery, butchers, dairy products, fish mongers, memorabilia, soap and beauty products, and the list keeps going to the extent of your imagination.

These markets are completely undercover, so regardless of the weather, you can browse and shop in comfort.

Going to these markets feels like a Jules Verne dream, except this round the world trip won't take eighty days but a few hours. This place has been built around cultural richness and world cuisines, creating a vibrant, aromatic and colourful experience for shoppers.

Visiting Melbourne on a budget can sometimes be a difficult task, however South Melbourne Markets have affordable prices for gifts and souvenirs, cheap meals (try Mama Tran Dumpling bar) and of course a free session of window shopping and interacting with some lovely local people.
