There are more than 140 stalls, selling the freshest organic and locally grown produce, unique fashion, shoes, gifts, homewares and other hidden treasures. You’ll also find florists, pet supplies, jewellery, massage therapists, hairdressers, books and bicycles!

South Melbourne Market is completely undercover, so you can stroll the aisles, whatever the weather. It’s also home to many cafés, restaurants and takeaway food stores, so you can go for a morning coffee, have a haircut, do your shopping and then take a breather while you dine under the umbrellas at one of the kerbside restaurants. If you’re feeling energetic, some restaurants are even open for dinner and feature live music.

Meet local designers and find one-of-a-kind gifts at SO:ME Space—a unique retail precinct. SO:ME Space (a wordplay on its location in SOuth MElbourne Market) has a focus on local design and production. With a mix of permanent traders and pop-up stalls, emerging designers get the chance to be discovered, while shoppers have the opportunity to find original fashion and homewares.

The market has almost 350 car spaces, including 270 undercover spaces on the rooftop. Parking for the first two hours is free on market days. Take tram 96 or 112 to stop 127—just ten minutes from the CBD.

If you want real service from real people, South Melbourne Market has it all.
