DescriptionCelebrate the local foodie culture in Melbourne’s multicultural markets on a three-hour walking tour. With your local host and small group, you’ll discover the best of Melbourne’s bustling markets. Learn about local gastronomic culture, as well as the history and culinary traditions that are unique to the city. You’ll visit the market in the morning hours before the rush. This will allow you to interact with the vendors, as you gain rare insight into the history of the city and how the character of Melbourne has developed. Melbourne's oldest markets are packed with stories, and you will have plenty of samples, tastings and time to explore, so you can get the true experience. Hear about how immigration has been a driving force in Melbourne which gives the city such a unique vibe. Depending on the day and guide you may find yourself in Footscray at the Vietnamese market, Coburg at the Middle Eastern market, South Melbourne for the predominantly Mediterranean Market, or the famous Queen Victoria Market in the CBD (the largest open air market in Australia). Each area has its own character, amazing food, and eclectic style and buzz. You'll finish with a hot or cold beverage. By the time your tour finishes, the markets will have come fully to life as locals arrive for freshly sourced lunches and to do their grocery shopping. The cafés, bars and shops stay open throughout the afternoon, and you’ll be free to explore more fully after the tour concludes. Continue shopping on your own, or head back to your hotel.
