If you're walking through the aisles of seafood, cheese slabs and miscellaneous Aussie paraphernalia at the Queen Victoria Market in June and happen to think, 'gee, I could really do with some truffles', there's a chance you might be in luck. On the third weekend of the month, the market will host its annual Truffle Melbourne Festival.

No longer just the terrain of your posh great aunt and people at fancy French restaurants, truffles are more accessible than ever (albeit, with a price tag). The Truffle Melbourne Festival initially started out at Prahran Market, and has been the biggest event on Melbourne's truffle calendar for the last five years — it's returning to the Queen Vic Market for the third time on the weekend of June 22 and 23.

The free-to-attend festival will see live chef demos and even mock truffle hunts with some adorable truffle sniffer dogs. That's not to mention all the truffle-related produce you can dream of — think truffle-infused raclette, truffle-topped pizzas, truffle-stuffed toasties and even truffle-dusted coffees. There'll also be free samples and tastings to be had across the two days. We'd be making the most of that.
