This buzzing indoor market is, in many ways, the heart of Footscray.
Footscray has long had a reputation for a true food lover's destination thanks to the diverse range of cultures (and cuisines) represented across the suburb. And for an all-encompassing cross-section of culinary delights, look no further than Footscray Market.
Hard to miss, thanks to its expansive location across the road from Footscray Station, this bustling marketplace is your one-stop-shop for meat and seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as exotic and usually hard-to-find ingredients.
With over 60 shops housed within the market, you'll be able to source everything from general groceries to specialist items like lotus flowers, pigs ears and cassava root. The market is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 7am, with extended afternoon trade on Fridays, when it closes at 6pm.
