Apart from the good food & crazy shopping deals.. Melbourne has several street markets going on over the weekends too! Theres vintage, food, local talents etc. kinda themed markets. Personally, i've always preferred those that show cases the local talents who make their own jewellery & stuff. It's always nice to see the creative designs these individuals create in their own artistic way. Support local, always!
The rose street market is a flea where they show case local talents who handmade their items. I regret not purchasing an item from a woman who does who own jewellery. The prints are absolutely gorgeous!
There is a cafe next to the market called "Young Bloods". They serve up a really good brunch! Best to be there early as they close by 5pm. After filling your tummy & walking around the market, you could walk around the neighbourhood too. There are a row of hipsterish shops & lots of graffiti filled walls along the way.
