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.

  • Best quality produce and a fantastic range too. You don't shop here to save money. If you want the best come here, if you want cheap I doubt you could beat Dandenong market. Regular shopper at both
  • The best market in Melbourne. The quality of all the food is outstanding. None of the vendors disappoint, in our experience. A little more expensive but as the Italians say Come spendi, mangi. And I love their promotional activities too. I just wish we lived closer.
  • 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!
  • Wouldn't say they are competitive on price. Good range of fresh produce
  • If you're willing to pay more, this is the place to go for fresh goods! Very conveniently located between the major supermarkets in the area.
