We didn't get to see much because we simply did not have time. Full of food and flavours and bargains everywhere. Take cash not your card. Many people there do not have EFTPOS. Great atmosphere

This is an agile market in the center of Melbourne. There is sold almost everything from food to clothes, toys or a lot of things you do not really need. But it is fun to have a look at and enjoy the lively goings-on.

The food part was great, all different and full of amazing things. The stores at the back selling knick knacks were more of a disappointment as they were quite similar and pricing was similar too. Still, we did get a few things. Magnets were cheaper...More

It was good, they didn't have many good shops but the food was awesome! The stalls were also very expensive, like a small hot chocolate was $6.50 but it was very nice 👍🏽

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Not sure if they sell spreads but there are a lot of nut stalls. If they don't I'm sure they will know where to buy it. They are very helpful
