Lord Mayor’s message
Summer is the perfect time to get out and enjoy our city. For expert advice on what to see and do, head to our new visitor hub at Queen Victoria Market.
Loved by locals and sought out by domestic and international visitors, Queen Victoria Market – which recently celebrated its 140th birthday – is one of our city’s top five most-visited attractions.
Our city ambassadors have been roving on site during market days since April, working alongside the market’s customer service team to encourage visitors to explore everything the market and the city have to offer.
I’m delighted to share that we’ve now opened a new visitor hub on site. Located in String Bean Alley, the Queen Victoria Market Visitor Hub operates out of a repurposed shipping container.
Drop by to browse displays that celebrate the market’s traders, extensive program of events, much-loved character and cultural heritage, and experiences to enjoy across the city.
Queen Victoria Market is open every Tuesday, and Thursday to Sunday. I encourage you all to drop by, explore the visitor hub, find local produce and support the traders as you shop and socialise over the summer months.
