Overview of Markets

Melbourne's hundreds of markets are an important part of the mix the help define Melbourne's unique character. One any weekend you can find Melburnians and visitors alike trawling their way through one of the myriad of markets and soaking up the atmosphere.

General markets

"This is a FANTASTIC website - now I'm tempted to go to 4 markets each Saturday and Sunday - I would never have known there are so many operating in Melbourne if not for White Hat!"

Lisa
7 January 2006

Many of the inner suburbs have their own market which operates on selected days of the week, and these markets help define and reflect the nature of their local community Reflecting their origins as public markets where growers producers and other vendors could bring their goods to market they only operate on certain days of the week - otherwise there would be no time to grow or make the goods. Prahran Market has great delicatessens reflecting the affluence of nearby South Yarra and Toorak. The fish at the Footscray Market is plentiful and cheap as one would expect with a large Vietnamese population. The Preston Market has a strong Mediterranean influence. South Melbourne Market offers produce on a Sunday, while at the Gleadell Street Market in Richmond you can still find produce grown in local back gardens and a homely European flavour. Dandenong Market is a one stop shopping with a lively atmosphere.

But the queen of them all is the wonderful Queen Victoria Market. If you only visit one market in Melbourne, this has to be it.

Produce and farmers' markets

Community markets like those mentioned above were of course the original farmers' markets and you will still find many stalls at these markets where the stallholder has grown or produced some or all other goods themselves. In recent years there has been a resurgence in farmers' markets with a particular emphasis on organic products and sustainable farming practices. For a comprehensive listing of these go to Farmers' Markets in Victoria.

Artists' & designers' markets

Melbourne has a small number of markets where artists and skilled tradespeople have banded together to create an outlet that bypasses hefty gallery or retail commissions. One such Market is the Rose Street Artists' Market. You can also find markets specialising in design at Design in Melbourne.

Craft markets

Melbourne and Victoria have a large number of markets selling art and crafts. Some markets have conditions specifying that all goods should be hand made or home made or that the stallholder must have been directly involved with the manufacture of the goods, etc. Some prominent  art and craft markets of this type are the St Kilda Esplanade Market and the Arts Centre Sunday Market. Of course such conditions often don't preclude the sort of semi mass produced hand-made items that are the same month after month, and, after all, that may be what you are after. You will find a large number of craft markets amongst the comprehensive listing of Melbourne markets below.

Trash and Treasure

In any one week there are large numbers of markets featuring trash & treasure, bric-a-brac, pre-loved goods, olde wares, just plain junk and that thing you have been chasing for years. Some examples of large markets in Melbourne selling all of the above plus a fair bit more include Pipeworks Market, Laverton Rubble & Riches Market, and Caribbean Gardens, while in country Victoria such large markets include the Geelong Mill Markets and the Bendigo Showgrounds Market.

Access by public transport

Many of the larger markets are easily accessible by public transport and an all day ticket to ride the complete system in Melbourne on a Saturday and Sunday is incredibly cheap (see money saving tips). You can even travel to and from Bittern Market on the Mornington Peninsula for a total of $2.90 (see a description of the trip). Queen Victoria, South Melbourne, Prahran, Preston, Footscray and St Albans markets are close to either train or tram. Anything in the inner suburbs is likely to be close to a train or tram. In the outer suburbs buses can often be few and far between so choosing a market close to a railway station is safest. Look out for this situated in railway station carparks such as the Gully Market, Blackburn, Bentleigh etc.

Dogs

Dogs are rarely if ever allowed at indoor markets and usually cannot be taken to a market held at a racecourse. Dogs on a leash are usually allowed if the market is in a public park or similar open public space. If in doubt check with the organisers.

Atmosphere

Of course you don't have to a market with the intention of buying something. You can just go along to soak up the atmosphere. Twilight markets usually have an atmosphere of their own and you can find a comprehensive listing at Twilight Markets in Melbourne. Then for others aren't simply a matter of making money by trading - they are a way of life and serve an important function in the cycle of life in Melbourne. For an example see our Melbourne Newsletter No.183 of 3rd August 2006.

Food & Seed Swap at Slow Food Farmers’ Market

As mentioned in the edition of White Hat Food Newsletter focusing on 'Sustainable Food', Sustainable Gardening Australia (SGA) is holding their first ever fruit and veg/seed swap at the Abbotsford Convent Slow Food Farmer’s Market. If you’ve had a bountiful crop this winter and ended up with more fruit and veg than you know what to do with, they’d love you to come along and take part. Not only is this a great opportunity to show off your skills, but to also chat with with like-minded individuals and to have fun. The aim is to get members like yourself talking and discussing the successes (and failures!) of your efforts in sustainable gardening while sharing your produce as well as your knowledge. It’s also a great opportunity to swap some seeds as Spring approaches. There will be SGA volunteers heading along to give you the latest happenings on the PODs project – Productive, Organic and Diverse gardening groups. If you have a passion for gardening, want to connect with your community, meet like-minded people and make a genuine difference to the environment, why not get involved? This will be a fantastic opportunity to network and get your own POD up and running.
