“The number 58 Tram at the end of road will take you straight to QueenVic Market: a Melbourne institution. An open-air Market packed with stallholders who are passionate about fresh produce. It's popular with locals as their go-to for fresh fruit, veggies, meat and an outstanding variety of dairy and small goods, and has also become something of a 'must visit' for tourists. With a huge number of stalls selling clothes, accessories and other bric-a-brac the market has evolved into more than just the place to get your weekly shop.
