The South Melbourne market is a covered food and general goods market located in South Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It began operating in 1867, as an outlet for vegetables, fruit and flowers grown by the market gardeners of Cheltenham. It is a Victorian style of building with wood and red brick.
In its lifetime the market has undergone various refurbishments, including after numerous fires. The worst of these was in 1981 when two of the original sheds were destroyed and, later in the year, stalls were damaged by bombs.
Tram route 96 stops at the light rail station adjacent to the western end of the market. Tram route 12 runs down the nearby Clarendon St, with stop 127 at the corner of York St. Bus route 236 stops at Cecil St on the eastern end of the market.
