Rydges on Swanston | Local Area

Queen Victoria Markets

Since 1878 Queen Victoria Market has been Melbourne's favourite market and still is today. Spread over two city blocks it's a vibrant, busy jampacked Market Place, offering almost everything from fresh local produce, exotic fruit and vegetables, imported gourmet foods, fashion, boomerangs and much much more.

QVM plays host to the city's most Colourful and friendly traders under vast open-sided sheds and lofty-roofed halls and is open five days a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays - Sundays). Sundays, the whole area takes on a carnival atmosphere.

During the summer months QVM opens its shed up at night with live music, food stalls and chilled sangria. Only a short stroll from Rydges on Swanston
