Today we headed down to the iconic South Melbourne Market for a spot of shopping and to catch up for our weekly coffee meeting. South Melbourne Market has always been a favourite of mine and is great place for wandering and window shopping, as well as picking up quality fresh local produce from the many green grocers.

South Melbourne Market is famous for one thing…. Dim Sim’s and by far, the best you’ll find anywhere in Melbourne. You’ll also be spoilt for choice with plenty of cafes to choose from. Today we chose Café Padre – “Hand Crafted Coffee”. Now, with a name like this we were not to be disappointed. The smooth coffee and sweet pastries were to die for! And to follow it up, we grabbed a freshly juiced OJ from the stall on Coventry Street – squeezed right in front of our eyes. Yum!

One of my favourite areas in the market is the So:Me space which features local up and coming designers. Here they can exhibit and sell their work in pop-up style stalls. From clothing to shoes and jewellery, this area floods with creativity.

Getting lost down the many aisles of this market is a great way to lose a morning in Melbourne. After picking up some fresh flowers we also explored the health food store for some supplies (they sell great gluten free cornflakes) and bought up some bargains at Yak – a furniture/homewares store.
