Coventry Street Looking to furnish your home? Coventry street has a number of unique home furnishing stores ranging from Japanese to Middle Eastern style decorative appliances. This street is a creative butterfly's dream, with stores perfect for interior design, crafts and ideas. Also, if home shopping gets you hungry (there is something wrong with you if it doesn't), there are a number of nice dining restaurants and cafes lining the street. If you're feeling the urge to cook for the day, it is merely a short walk down the street to the South Melbourne markets.
Located on Coventry and Cecil Streets in the heart of South Melbourne, the Markets are always a lively place to find yourself on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays 8am-4pm and Fridays 8am-5pm. This large market supplies its customers with fresh produce, quality products and variety from its many stores. Not only can you find fruit and veg, but seafood, meat, Chinese groceries, bakeries, fashion, flowers, restaurants and I even spotted a Polish deli. Click here for more information.
