Queen Victoria Christmas Market
Grab your gifts and everything you need to whip up Christmas lunch at one of the city's largest markets.
In the lead-up to Christmas, you don't want to be dashing all over town, picking up every little thing to make the day come together. Luckily, the festive season is coming to one of Melbourne's largest markets, making it a real one-stop shop for present shopping and stocking up on Christmas lunch.
Across the month of December, festive celebrations are set to take place under the twinkling lights and through the open-air laneways of Queen Vic market, with over 550 vendors selling locally-made gifts and Christmas trinkets for those hard-to-shop for souls.
If you're facing feeding a bunch, you can order your fresh seafood, hams and poultry now — although many vendors are promising to stock hams right up until Christmas eve, if you leave things a bit late.
For the kids, a special Christmas trail around the market is on, so grab a map from the Market Hub, follow the clues and be in to win a festive prize. Santa will be visiting on weekends from November 19 if you've still got things to put on your wishlist. When you get hungry and need a shopping break, drinks and food are on at the Brick Lane Bar.
