Monday is the 'dead' day for markets in Melbourne and Victoria. In fact is the dead day for many other activities. Many theatres and restaurants take their one day off on a Monday. If you are prepared to travel to the outskirts of Melbourne there is the sprawling Mernda Market with a real country atmosphere.

White Hat suggests that you use a Monday to visit some of the 'fixed' bazaars such as the Chapel Street Bazaar or the Mill Markets in country Victoria.

As well as visiting markets, you may be interested in our suggestions for 20 Things to do in Melbourne on a Monday.

You can also see events and markets in Melbourne for a particular Monday by choosing a date from the drop down list on the right.

Until recently, this location hosted a large and popular market. That market has relocated to Newcomb (see below).
