The markets of Melbourne are buzzing, colourful reflections of the city’s soul. Half of Aussies are first- or second-generation immigrants, and this diverse cultural tapestry is on full display in its markets. Go behind the scenes, taste the food, meet the vendors and discover the local culture.
Get to know Melbourne's culinary culture with a visit to the markets; graze the market, graze the world as you sample over a dozen international (and some Aussie) foods; learn about the gastronomic culture, history and traditions of the region from your local foodie host.
Learn the history of markets in Australia and why their multicultural food reflects Australia’s diverse society and finish the tour in the market at lunchtime, where you can satiate any leftover appetite with dozens of lunch options.
