The Queen Victoria Markets is fun for a visit. It has mostly your typical market stalls selling you typical wares with a few exceptions. I would recommend checking out these markets on any trip to Melbourne

Throughout the summer, the Wednesday Night Market is held at the Queen Victoria Market and it's a worthwhile thing to do as a tourist. Tons of locals come out to drink, shop, hang out and eat. Very much like Smorgasburg in NY just bigger and...More

I’ve been to various markets in a few cities. This one is definitely worth a look. Not too crowded even so close to Xmas.

Historical market place in Melbourne CBD. Buzzing with people. They sell everything you need for your pantry and fridge. Good touristy place to find souvenirs from.
