the girl goes to the Victoria Night Markets

I mentioned in a previous post, I recently went to Melbourne. I could not leave the city without visiting the Queen Victoria Markets. I was lucky enough to venture down to the markets on a Wednesday night. While smaller than the markets held on other days, the Night Markets have a very special ambience.

The Vic Markets, as they are affectionately called, have been operating in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD for the last 130 years. Now, they offer a wide variety of cooked meals, fresh produce, arts, crafts, clothing, cosmetics, homewares, music and other entertainment.

As someone who eats a lot of market food, I can say that these markets had some of the best I have ever tasted. Plus, you get to see it cooking right in front of you!

When we first arrived we didn’t have to line up to buy anything, but as the night continued we did. While the lines move fairly quickly, I would definitely recommend getting there early because it does get busy.

If you do find yourself in Melbourne, I would definitely recommend going down to the Vic Markets for a great night (or day).
