Super cool place to go with your family or friends! Even cooler fact is that South Melbourne Market was found in 1887!!! You can find everything pretty much there: fresh food and clothes, coffee and cleaning supplies:) So many awesome small and cute little bistros, so you could find anything you like to eat and drink!! It is open every day from 8am till 4pm. We had a great lunch there - we tried a few different things from various small restaurants and got coffee and smoothie for deserts:) Recommend! Cheers :)
Fantastic range of food! One of the cheese shops has a walk in air conditioned cheese pantry. It was amazing! We bought some cheeses, olives and quince paste. After this we had lunch at the seafood place on the corner. The food was delicious and inexpensive. I would totally recommend visiting these markets! Apparently the paella place is awesome too so we must return : )
