Trading but FOOD STALLS ONLY. To the best of White Hat’s knowledge, this event or location is operating as usual despite COVID-19 precautions. However, due to rapidly changing conditions, always double check
with the organiser or institution before making a special trip.
South Melbourne Market is a large undercover market with a wide range of
produce and general goods. It is a White Hat favourite for finding last
minute gifts and on Sundays all its food stalls are operating while there is
only a limited number of produce stalls open at the
Victoria Market on Sundays.
Many Melbournians swear by the hearty
dim sims available at one of the perimeter shops, although White Hat
prefers the more delicate freshly made dumplings and seafood rolls available
at the Chinese store in the deli section.
Port Phillip Mussel Festival
White Hat can thoroughly recommend this vibrant seafood festival come
street party. Enjoy mussels and other seafood cooked in a wide variety of
ways all accompanied by one of Melbourne's best free jazz festivals. Street
vendors combine with the market's own restaurants to provide plenty of
variety from the cheap and cheerful through to chef-prepared restaurant
dishes. Sit in the sun with a cold sangria and a hot mussel paella or enjoy
a craft beer with wok cooked drunken mussels.
