Where is the Best Produce in Melbourne ?
I will be spending three weeks in Melbourne this January with nothing to do except hang out with my girlfriend and cook.
I will stay in Balwyn, but will happily venture as far as 34 km for excellent produce. I want cheese, meat, friuts, vegatables, seafood and mushrooms. where to?
Head into the city and visit Victoria Market. You will find everything you want there. You should be able to get into the city by tram - think it goes to Finders St, then catch the tram up Elizabeth St to the market. It is open on Tuesday, Thursday (6am - 2pm), Friday and Saturday
( 6am - 3 pm). It is also open on Sunday (9am - 4pm) but for clothes etc and small amount of food produce.
I second Victoria Market. If you can do it, catch the free tourist bus which will take you around to numerous tourist sites.
I would also recommend having a cheap eat at the food court at Victoria Market. Not expensive and quite tasty. Sample your way through.
