Affectionately as ‘Vic Market’ or ‘Queen Vic’, the Queen Victoria Market has been the heart and soul of Melbourne for more than a century.
Spanning several city blocks, the Queen Victoria Market is the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere. Operating since 1878, the Queen Vic Market has grown to support over 700 small businesses, where shoppers can find locally produced fruit and vegetables, gourmet food, clothing, jewellery, handcrafts and more.
During the summer and winter months, watch the market transform into The Night Market on Wednesdays 5pm-10pm. With a dazzling program of delicious food and drinks, artisan shopping and live entertainment, The Night Market can’t be missed.
