It’s all about taste at historic Prahran Market, one of Melbourne’s finest and most popular fresh food markets. Located in the same location for over 125 years, the market features a number of trendy cafés and a variety of stalls and shops selling fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, and deli products. Known locally as "the food lover's market" because of the quality and range of foods on sale, the market also offers specialty and hard-to-find items, such as exotic cheeses, game, and heritage varieties of regional fruits and vegetables, grown by local farmers. This is the only market in the city with its own square, which often hosts cultural performances and includes a children’s playground. Put Prahran Market and other Melbourne attractions into our Melbourne journey planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
Prahran Market reviews
It’s a great market for just walking around, getting a bite to eat or a coffee and of course choosing top quality produce. It has everything you might want even those difficult to find ingredients... more »
Wanted to buy everything! Got olives, bread, cheese and dips in the end. Could have got a lot more. Highly recommend. more »
Wow! Such a great variety of mouth-watering products well-displayed and so tempting. Wanted to try a selection, so brought home some home-made ravioli, cabbage rolls, zucchini fritter, thai chicken balls, mangoes, almond croissant and freshly-squeezed orange juice. All delicious and there is so much more to be tasted. We’ll be back!
Exceptional selection of food items. For a voice to Melbourne, I really felt like I got an authentic taste for the city (both literally and figuratively). We bought fresh produce, enjoyed numerous free samples (including a sausage competition), and sipped iced coffee with gelato while we listened to a live DJ. It was the perfect place to spend a hot Sunday afternoon.
