Also known affectionately as ‘Vic Market’ or ‘Queen Vic’, the Queen Victoria Market has been the heart and soul of Melbourne for more than a century.
A historic landmark spread over two city blocks, it’s a vibrant and bustling inner-city Market where you can shop for everything from Australian fruit and vegetables, and local and imported gourmet foods, to cosmetics, clothing, and souvenirs.
The Market is open five days a week—Tuesday, and Thursday to Sunday.
Whilst the car park area is somewhat bumpy and uneven, it is wheelchair friendly.
The gift shopping area of the market is also quite wheelchair friendly, though the ground is rather uneven and could pose risks.
There are male & female disable toilets in the main market area (next to the ATM’s) & also next to the food hall/fruit & vegetable area.
We recommend that you visit later in the day when the market is less crowded. Whilst moving around the market is quite easy, your experience will be greater if you get to the market at around 12:30pm onwards when the morning crowd has gone. You will still be able to spend 1-2 hours in the meat & deli and fish & meat section should you wish.
If you wish to make purchases from the meat & deli section, or the meat & fish section, we recommend you take an able-bodied companion with you. (Someone that is tall enough to see over the high counters in the sections).
All in all, you will have a wonderful time at the market.
As per our recommendations, we do advise you to take a companion with you to complete purchases.
