I love markets, so the first thing I did the weekend in Melbourne was going to the Queen Victoria Market. A landmark of the city, 17 acres, largest open market in the Southern Hemisphere, opened in 1878, tourist destination, and a good place to find, vegetables, fruits, meat, poultry, seafood, delicatessen, and even clothes, arts, and crafts.

Great place the Deli is my favourite part, have to come back for some sausages, apparently are quite famous and a Didgeridoo.
Markets remind me the Seinfeld episode "The Pez Dispenser"
Jerry: What is that, a Pez dispenser?
Kramer: Want one? Yeah, I just bought it at the Flea Market
George: Hey, what goes on there, exactly?
Jerry: You don't know?
George: No, I know... I know...
Jerry: You think they have fleas there, don't you?
Jerry: Yes you do, Biff, you've never been to a Flea Market, and you think they have fleas there
George: All right, I think they have fleas there, so what
