A Melbourne Market

Queen Vic market signOne thing I love doing when we travel is checking out the local markets, whether supermarket, farmer’s market, stock market (okay, I went too far) or corner store.  Melbourne has a market that I wish I could teleport back home; it was visually stunning and made me envious of people that could shop there every day.  It’s not earth-shatteringly different from many European markets, but it’s the only one we saw in Australia and I wanted to share it with you.

Now that you’ve seen all the pretty pictures, I should tell you the ONLY reason I even wrote this post was to include that absolutely priceless photo of my hubby.

    The store hours are a hoot…every day is different…I can see myself getting confused! Prices look bizarre…what is the currency conversion? I don’t even know what Australian money is called?

      The hours at all stores in Sydney and Melbourne were .. interesting! The conversion rate was $1.00 American to 1.03AD (australian dollars) – they had THE prettiest money – really colorful and with a see-through hole in it!

I'd love to hear from you...
