The best way to really appreciate the flavour of a city is to visit a local market. Melburnians are certainly spoilt for choice: the iconic Queen Victoria Market and its smaller cousin in South Melbourne are institutions in their own right. But foodies in the know swear by Prahran Market, with its wide range of sustainable seafood, free-range meat, organic fruit and vegetables, freshly roasted coffee and more.
