The Gleadell Street Market is one of the few remaining traditional street markets to be found in inner Melbourne. It was established by farmers in the 19th century when most markets in Melbourne were predominantly farmers' markets. No doubt said farmers would chuckle if they read read certain websites that state "farmers' markets were first established in the 1990s".

The Gleadell Street Market is a produce market selling fresh fruit and vegetables along with bread, nuts, and other foodstuffs. There are no butchers, but there is one fishmonger. The adjoining local primary school often has displays, activities and additional stalls.

A short description of a visit to the market can be found in an archived White Hat Melbourne Newsletter at Melbourne's Hidden Gems.
