Prahran is now home to the second outpost of Andrew McConnell's chic Euro-style food store, Morning Market. And locals have quickly embraced its lockdown-friendly curation of groceries, sandwiches and gourmet pantry items.

In this bright corner spot on High Street, on-the-go diners will find seasonal options like a hot-smoked salmon melt with crème fraîche and comté ($15); a continental roll starring provolone, nduja and three styles of cured meat on Baker Bleu ciabatta ($14); and a winter vegetable salad loaded with spiced pumpkin and freekeh ($14). Coffee comes courtesy of a house-blend by Single Origin.

There's plenty more of cult-favourite Baker Bleu's bread available to purchase, with fresh country-style loaves, ficelle and bagels sitting alongside a range of pastries, pies and sweet treats. You might be tempted by some pistachio-dusted escargot ($6), an apple and cinnamon bundt ($5), the signature Basque cheesecake ($12), or the house-made rum and vanilla caneles ($4).

Those stocking their pantries will also find themselves spoilt for choice here, thanks to a top-quality selection of locally sourced fresh produce, gourmet staples and specialty food items — from organic dry goods and artisan pasta, to fancier things in cans and tins. And last-minute dinners are sorted, with Morning Market's signature range of ready-to-heat meals, as well as a selection of meat cuts, snags and charcuterie from sibling store Meatsmith.

Elsewhere, you'll find a selection of food-related gifts and homewares, plus an abundance of freshly-cut blooms from local grower Guy McDermott.
