The Queen Victoria markets always make me want to move to Melbourne. We have great places in Sydney but this place really has it all, and for cheap!

My love affair is mainly with the vegetables – some of which (hello Romanesco broccoli) you can never get in Sydney.

Gerookde paling! Love it. Finally I can get some smoked eel in Sydney – the BF will be thrilled..

It’s walking distance from anywhere in town. Grab some cheese and bread and vegies and fruit and some local wine and you have a perfect picnic.
