Winter Night Market

Melbourne enjoy the final weeks of the Winter night market!

Wednesday Nights, 5pm – 10pm.
June 6th to August 29th

Wander the mystic sheds of Queen Victoria Market uncovering the smells, sounds and tastes of Winter. We’re back and lighting things up like never before, from roaring open fires to quirky entertainers, we have something for all, boasting over thirty global street food stalls and fifty specialty and locally-made retailers.

Let’s take a quick look at the history of Queen Victoria Market!

Queen Victoria  Market goes back to 140 years, Queen Victoria Market has had a colourful and sometimes controversial history. During that time, the site has been a cemetery, a livestock market and a wholesale fruit and vegetable market. Each of these operations has its own history and an element of controversy.

The Queen Victoria Market was officially opened on 20 March 1878, a range of markets having operated from the site in varying forms prior to that date.

Melbourne remains a Market town with many large municipal markets including South Melbourne, Prahran and Dandenong Markets. However, Queen Victoria Market is the largest and most intact of all Melbourne’s great 19th century markets.
