Since 1867, South Melbourne Market has been a treasured inner-city landmark and a favourite amongst locals and visitors. It is the quintessential village market, a place where people come not only to purchase fresh food, but to meet, eat, drink, shop, discover, share and connect.
The Market is full of authentic traders who display their wares with pride and passion. Quirky and playful characters are found behind the counters, delivering old fashioned customer service with a smile. We embrace and showcase the local, supporting local farmers, artisans and producers.
It’s a foodie’s paradise where freshness, quality and diversity are paramount with food stuffs from land to sea. We celebrate a philosophy of real food, encouraging you to cook food that is made from great quality, fresh produce sourced from our family of traders you know, love and trust.
We are also home to seriously good coffee, specialty tea and a vibrant restaurant precinct for day and night time fun. There’s also an amazing array of merchandise and services with everything from clothing, homewares and second-hand books to hairdressing and pet food.
Our online marketplace has been created for those that can’t make it to the Market to shop, so our customers can still order with their favourite traders and support small business. We will continue to add new traders, new products and expand our home delivery options, so be sure to check in with us regularly.
