"Chinatown"-Official media of Chinese Australians

Every Sunday when the sun rises in Melbourne, eager sellers fill up their cars and set up stalls in various markets.

How lucky we are, because the market is a different experience outside of the same shopping mall and online shopping, which also spoiled our weekend.

Consumers filled their shopping bags with unique homemade gifts, collectibles and household items.

You don’t have to bid on eBay with consumers across the country, take some time to go shopping, maybe you can buy old gems or designer clothes at the prices of smart buyers.

And if you shop online, where can you get hot jam donuts, freshly baked small cakes, and a glass of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Reporters of Leader newspaper believe that the following markets are their favorite Sunday markets in Melbourne:

Rose Street Artist Market

Saturday and Sunday, 11am-5pm, 60 Rose St, Fitzroy.
