It's a merry market Christmas at Queen Victoria Market
Queen Victoria Market, the grand dame of Melbourne markets, is open a few extra days leading up to Christmas this year. From Thursday, December 20 to Monday, December 24, shoppers can beat the Christmas shopping rush and get all their festive goodies in one place.
Stock up for that Christmas Day feast and pick up your fresh fruit and vegetables, seafood, meat and of course the amazing deli goods from the market's famous deli hall. There will be plenty of last-minute gifts and bargains all over the market, and Santa will be roaming the markets the weekend before Christmas Day from 10am to 2pm. Head over on Sunday for some festive family fun from 9am to 4pm, too.
So if you’re trawling the Queen Victoria Markets this year for prawns, puddings and presents, take a moment to enjoy its festive offerings. Plus, there's even an ice rink!
