This Melbourne institution—the “Vic Market”—covers several blocks. Ignore the hundreds of stalls selling everything from live rabbits to bargain clothes. There’s a lot of junk here, and the crowds can be awful. The best part of the markets are the indoor food sections, particularly the interesting delicatessen section. The 2-hour Foodies Dream Tour of the market explores the market’s food and heritage and is well worth doing. It departs Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 10am and costs A$40 per person, including generous tastings. Bookings ([tel] 03/9320 5835) are essential. Night markets are held every Wednesday from 5:30 to 10pm, from November to late February (except the last week of Dec).
