Prahran Market, Melbourne

4.3
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.

  • Came here on a Tuesday morning, so it was quite empty. Thrilled to find very fresh and tasty oysters at $20 per dozen - they are so expensive in my home country, Singapore. Also got myself mediterranean dips at 4 for $10. Quite a bargain and so yummy. I love this market.
  • I really enjoyed the afternoon I spent here. It was a Thursday so crowds were minimal but far from deserted and the atmosphere was relaxed. Prices were reasonable and the quality of everything I purchased was excellent. It had a maze like quality but none of the shady-ness that comes with a lot of other markets take on. All in all I loved it and will certainly be back.
  • It's always fun to go this place as it's a joy take a walk around the market and enjoy large variety of fruits,pastry and foods ! there are also some good cafes and small restaurants at the middle of the Market which is always lively and full of people enjoying their time here. A shopping hint: go on Sundays to find fruits for $1 and $2 (not so fresh though) Also you can eat as many sausages as you want on Sundays
  • Easy parking, right by public transport the market is a great destination for fresh meat, veg, poultry deli cheeses, sauces, cakes and seafood. In market competition means great quality and pricing.There are good cafes and the Essential Ingredient carries a wealth of unique gourmet offerings
  • It's good, but the worst part is it's expensive. If you have money to burn and want to buy organic everything, then this will be fine. For the rest of us on an income of less than $500,000 a year, I'd advise you to treat it more like a deli, get the special things you want from here but the supermarket is generally cheaper. I found that the nut place was fairly priced, and some places sold meat and cheese at reasonable prices, but if you think it's called a market and therefore sells at a discount that's not correct. The Lebanese patisserie makes great desserts, the Gozleme is great but almost nothing is cheap.
