A Shopping Trip at the Market District






by Ed Dennis


As tempting as it might be to continually eat out in Melbourne, you will have to cook at some time or other. Microwave dinners become boring after some time and you will need to venture out in search of fresh produce to cook with. If you have no idea where to get this kind of produce then you need to head out to the Melbourne market district. It is an all round market that will provide you with everything that you need for you to cook.

For your fresh produce, you will want to head straight to the Caribbean Gardens Market. You are assured of getting super fresh items that will contribute to some of your tastiest meals. This market is open on Fridays, Wednesdays and Sundays and you need to keep this in mind as you do your shopping. That way you can buy enough to cook and to stock up for when there are no market days.

For those with an eye for decor, filling your home with a variety of antiquities and handmade crafts is a dream come true. You can visit the craft markets in Flemington, Mornington and Red Hill. This happens once a month and you want to time your shopping sprees well. You are sure to come out with great unique pieces for a friendly price.

The fun part about shopping here is that you get to interact with the natives. You can learn much more about the aborigine culture and even learn some of their language. This cultural experience should prove invaluable for both you and your children. The whole experience should be something that you will enjoy and remember for a long time, if you are only visiting for a little while.

If all you want is your favourite designer clothes, heels and bag then designer heaven is right around the corner. Style after Dark has a Thursday evening sale that will leave your current wardrobe refurbished and definitely more stylish. You will also not have to spend too much because the prices attached are quite affordable.

If you want to shop the environmentally friendly way then there is a place just for you. The trash and treasures market offers handmade craft pieces and other items made from recycled products. A stroll around will open up your eyes to the amazing things you can purchase here. You therefore stand to gain so much from visiting this market.
