I’m in Chapel Street South Yarra at 1.30pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon when I remember that I have to meet a friend in a city bar for ‘catch up’ drinks at 3.00pm. Trams are easy but the last time I ate was a slice toast at 6.30am. I need food or I will become [...]

St Kilda Night Market up-date.
This popular market was put on hold at the end of last year because of problems with the organizers’ negotiations with the Port Phillip City Council. Things have changed and I found on my return to Melbourne from holiday that this wonderful market was again operating. If you don’t know the [...]

One of my favourite breads in Melbourne is Noisette’s Sourdough Fruit Bread and my favourite Melbourne place to buy it is at the Pickadeli in the South Melbourne Market.
In fact now I think about I only buy it at the Market. I still pop into Noisette’s on Bay Street, Port Melbourne for coffee and cake [...]

This stunning piece of urban art is a work by Frank Malerba.
You can see it yourself as you head along Cecil Street away from the South Melbourne Market.
It is wonderful to be able to see such eye catching pieces of art during an every-day shopping excursion or a walk around the local streets. Frank Malerba [...]

The say good things come in small packages and the St Kilda, Salvation Army Opportunity Shop is proof of this. They have downsized. In doing so they have created a much better outlet in Carlisle Street than the previous one on the corner of Inkerman Street and St Kilda Road.
That huge rambling and messy warehouse [...]

You don’t have to be a railway buff to enjoy a stop at the Victorian Railway Arts and Antiques – the place that is like a museum.
Ride the 96 tram that’s the light rail, to St Kilda and get off at the Albert Park Station.
From the platform you walk into the old, red, brick station [...]

Sunday. The sun is shining and the part of the world that is South Melbourne is buzzing. A good place to take in all this buzz is at an outside table at the Red Star Cafe. On a cold day a window table inside would do just as well.
This cafe is right opposite the main [...]

The Prahran Market is a foodies market. It is all about food, preparing it, cooking it and eating it. If that sounds like you The Prahran Market is the place to explore. Take your recipes and search out those unusual ingredients.
I think it is best on Saturday. The produce seems to be fresher as if [...]

Summertime in Melbourne is market time and markets spring up all over the place – Pre-Christmas I had great success with some Christmas presents at a market set up in the Elwood School grounds.
This flurry of summer markets led me to forget the markets that just keep-on-keeping-on.
The Esplanade Market in St Kilda has been keeping [...]
