Queen Victoria Market Day

Queen Victoria Market

While I was in the Melbourne CBD, I went to check out the Queen Victoria Market. I loved walking around the food section of the market. All the food looked so delicioussss, especially the baked desserts! I definitely had to pick up a few snacks as well as some souvenirs to bring back to my family and friends.

If you’re ever in Melbourne I highly recommend you stop by even just for a quick stroll! Click the link below to read more. ūüôā
