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.

This large antique market with a wide range of items is located on two floors of an old school building and also contains a museum with a small entry charge.It is morein the nature of a very large antique store and does not appear to have the space to cater for casual stallholders.

Geelong Mill Markets
Until recently, this location hosted a large and popular market. That market has relocated to Newcomb (see below). The remaining Geelong Mills Matket now has a large array of retro advertising signs, furniture, and larger and quirky mechanical and industrial equipment. White Hat can recommend this market as a good source for those looking to do a quirky fitout as well as to theatre companies and film-makers looking for genuine period props. It now functions more as a warehouse so give a ring before making a special trip.
