I was on my usual explorations on a lazy sunday and I found the stretch near the National Gallery of Victoria Completely transformed. Unlike the usual empty streets there was a lot of activity. Sunday Market as the name suggests is a Market that brings together stalls of different products all at one place every sunday.
I had been to this open ground before and I had no clue whatsoever that this place would transform every sunday. There is enough open spaces in Melbourne to not suspect this small patch of green of any such surprising transformation.
There were I guess at least 50 different stalls and the variety of the stalls were astounding. There were postcards and then there were antique telescopes, and everything in between. It was a great opportunity to collect a couple of souvenirs. But its better to do all your shopping early because the stalls start closing at 4 pm, some even earlier.
There were about a dozen food stalls selling items ranging from these very delicious vietnamese egg rolls to roasted peanuts and macadamia nuts. The vietnamese Rolls were absolutely amazing. I was very impressed with the style of packaging. The entire roll was wrapped in a thin layer of rice which was edible. The inside was filled with fresh veggies that were crunchy and juicy and of course egg. The sauce was actually spicy and tingled my very Indian taste buds.
The Sunday Market is something that you cannot miss if you wish to see the variety of local products.
