When you say 'Melbourne market', it's impossible to not to think of the most royal of all: the Queen Victoria Market. With 600 retailers sprawling across the centre of the city, it is a historical landmark, major tourist attraction and place of many happy people eating hot jam doughnuts from the van that's been parked there for eternity. While food is what it does best across the deli hall, meat hall and fruit and veg centre, there's also plenty of other general merchandise worth browsing — especially if you're after a cheap leather belt. The market is at its carnival peak on Sundays.
