Queen Victoria Market
A spot of shopping
Corner of Victoria St and Elizabeth St (open Tuesday & Thursday 6 am – 2 pm, Friday 6 am – 5 pm Saturday 6 am – 3 pm & Sunday 9 am – 4 pm, www.qvm.com.au) has been held on this spot since the 1870s, and nowadays it remains as busy as it ever was, with more than a thousand stalls selling everything from fruit and vegetables to delicatessen products and cheeses. The wide-ranging produce reflects the city’s varied ethnic mix – with ingredients for everything from Greek to Vietnamese cooking. On Sundays it becomes more of a flea market, with plenty of bargains to be had in jeans, cheap clothing and the like. A lively spot, particularly on Saturday mornings.
