MELBOURNE | The Fitzroy Mills Market bills itself as a weekly “health and wellness market” and each Saturday between 9:00am and 2:00pm the market fills with locals keen on shopping from a variety of independent artisan stall holders. The market is the creation of siblings Ari, Aphrodite and Chris Vlahos, and the market is actually on the site of the family’s old mill.
A big part of the market is community and when you walk through it very much feels like a community focused space. There are a variety of vendors selling their wares, all of which are grown and made locally. Think organic produce, cheese, baked goods, skincare products, crafts and more. Local roasters Industry Beans sell coffee and breakfast at the market, while other favourites like bakers Cobb Lane, brewers Fury & Son, and cheese mongers Harper and Blohm also make regular appearances.
There’s also live music and other entertainment and dogs are welcome as long as they’re on a leash. It’s a great spot, and compliments the fantastic Rose Street Market just up the road well. Now there’s even more reason to visit one of our favourite streets in Fitzroy.
