Every Saturday, Richmond’s Gleadell Street is transformed into a bustling fresh food market, overflowing with seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh bread, herbs, flowers and other gourmet delights.
The original Richmond market opened in 1873 and the tradition of enthusiastic stallholders arriving as early as 2am to set up their stalls continues today.
Why not come along, enjoy the friendly service and sample some of Melbourne’s freshest produce? The market operates 7am to 1pm every Saturday except Easter Saturday, Anzac Day (if it falls on a Saturday) and two Saturdays over the Christmas period.
The market is environmentally friendly so market-goers should remember to bring a reusable shopping bag to carry their purchased items in. For further information about the market’s plastic bags policy, please see this media release.
