Places to Visit in Melbourne: Queen Victoria Market

Explore the city’s favourite market since 1878

Locally known as the ‘Vic Market,’ this landmark is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere. Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, the Queen Victoria Market is the only surviving 19th century market in the Melbourne CBD.

Starting as just a small market in the 1850’s, it gradually expanded into space made available by the closure of the old Melbourne Cemetery west, where human remains are still buried today. Thousands of tourists look past this eerie incident to take advantage of variety of fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry and seafood, gourmet and deli foods, as well as a diverse range of clothing, shoes, jewellery, and handmade arts and crafts.
