A pleasantly welcoming market where visitors to Melbourne can spend a couple of hours merrily browsing, eating & drinking.
These carnivore-comforting counters burst with all manner of meat ...
... some for the sampling: a slice of kangaroo sausage, a snack of crocodile steak.
No absence of bread, an abundance of cheese.
Fresh oysters & lustrous-looking seafood at reasonable-seeming prices.
What's a market without alcohol? A sober one, for sure.
Excellent chocolate, made right here in the Australian state of Victoria.
Many stalls serve hot food for breakfast & lunch; try the nutritious pizzas, with bases laced with the likes of beetroot & pumpkin for eye-catching colors ...
... or the bratwurst shop, where the line stretches to ten people thick at peak hours.
Sean's away through Sunday, Nov. 17, at a mystery location where cheese, olives & octopus are everywhere (not Melbourne). Comments will be replied next week. Thanks!
