Christmas Is Coming To The Market!

Christmas is an extra special time at Queen Victoria Market as our traders’ stalls are piled high with great seasonal produce, as shoppers from across Melbourne and Victoria flock to the Market to ensure their Christmas tables are full of the tastiest ingredients available.

As December nears, our Market will be decked out in beautiful decorations as we welcome a huge Christmas tree, marking the beginning of the Christmas trail that will take visitors on a journey throughout the Market.

Join us at The Night Market on December 3 to officially welcome Christmas to the Market with Salvation Army Carolers, Santa and the lighting of our 9 meter tall Christmas tree!

In the lead up to Christmas, we want to serve our customers as best as possible, and will do so by extending our opening days to include the several days before Christmas day, allowing shoppers to soak up as much of the festive atmosphere as possible.
