Melbourne's biggest book lovers have relocated to leafy Abbotsford
The famous weekly Fed Square book market shut up shop in 2017, much to the despair of Melbourne's bibliophile community. But the closure was only a temporary one, with the free market reopening at Abbotsford Convent in 2018.
Whether you eat, sleep and breath books or are just curious, the market has a vast selection of new and second-hand titles to browse from. From sci fi to non-fiction, the Melbourne Book Market has every genre presented by a revolving cast of veteran Melbourne booksellers. Tweed jackets are encouraged, but not compulsory.
After deciding on your next bedtime read take some time to stroll around the convent's picture-book perfect gardens or fill up with a pay-what-you-feel meal at Lentil As Anything. For more information on the next market visit the Abbotsford Convent website or the Melbourne Book Market Facebook page.
