    Great post. I find it so annoying sometimes having to hunt for healthy food and paying more for it. I love the fruit though. So much cheaper.

      Glad you liked it, Sally! It’s true, you may need to make your research first, and find out where you can buy healthy food. Fresh markets in Australia offer a great variety of healthy food, locally produced at reasonable prices. From fruits and veggies you can actually get most of what our body needs, add your favourite legumes or cereals and you have a fantastic cheap healthy and tasty meal! It’s sometimes easier than what one can imagine! 🙂

    Farmers markets are popular in Australia and usually run on the weekends, so keep an eye out for those. If you are in Melbourne somewhere like the Queen Victoria market or the South Melbourne is what you are looking for. These are large undercover market places in the heart of the city that sell fresh fruit, veggies and regional specialities. Walking distance from your hotel!

      Hi Aussie Expat, what’s your name? Thanks for stopping by and leaving your contribution! I love food markets in Australia. And there are some great ones not only in cities like Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney. The QV food Market in Melbourne is a very popular destination and it’s great, the only thing I don’t really like is their opening times, so weird and complicated. Hopefully they will change that in the near future. I can highly recommend the South Melbourne Food Markets from Friday-Sunday. And there are plenty of good weekend food markets in Melbourne surroundings too! 🙂
