HOT Tips:

  • get there as close to 5pm as you can as it gets busier and the lines longer. Peak hour is 7pm;
  • if you go early it’s relatively easy to find street parking close to the market at that time if you’re coming by car;
  • $10 parking from 4:30pm-11pm in market car park;
  • take a tram up Elizabeth St for the easiest access via PT;
  • the main market is not open; and
  • bring cash as not all vendors accept cards. There are a few ATMs by Therry Street/toilet blocks but with long queues.
