It’s all about taste at historic Prahran Market, one of Melbourne’s finest and most popular fresh food markets. Located in the same location for over 125 years, the market features a number of trendy cafés and a variety of stalls and shops selling fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, and deli products. Known locally as "the food lover's market" because of the quality and range of foods on sale, the market also offers specialty and hard-to-find items, such as exotic cheeses, game, and heritage varieties of regional fruits and vegetables, grown by local farmers. This is the only market in the city with its own square, which often hosts cultural performances and includes a children’s playground.

  • Quality market with great things to talk about.. Starting from the parking not bad for 2 Hours (only 2.5 dollars). Tuesday is a great day to visit with live music, some activities, more stalls, nice cafes to sit and have fun. I like the fact that this is a relaxed market. Love the Hungarian section too.. I recommend this market personally.. good one!
  • The Prahran market has it all, great deli's, heaps of fruit and veg stalls, a great bottle shop for beer way too much to mention here. If you need lunch or you are shopping for the week Prahran market is a great place to go.
