Queen Victoria Market

The Queen Victoria Market (also known as the Queen Vic Markets or simply as the Queen Vic or "Vic Market") is a major landmark in Melbourne, Australia and has been Melbourne's market since 1878, and at around seven hectares (17 acres) is the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere. The Market is significant to Melbourne's culture and heritage and has been listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. The Market is named after Queen Victoria who ruled the British Empire, from 1837 to 1901.

Today, the Market is a major Melbourne tourist destination, offering a variety of fruit and vegetables, meat, poultry and seafood, gourmet and deli foods as well as specialty delicacies. It also has a large non-food related market, selling a diverse range of clothing, shoes, jewellery and handmade art and crafts.

It's a great market and this is a great shot of it. Love the collage you've constructed; really shows it off properly.

@girlie @nikkers well, I'm glad both of you have been here before. I don't get to go here often at all. In fact must have been at least ten years since the last visit. I just loved shopping here & I know about those jam doughnuts - better in the winter though. Thanks for you comments.
