Melbourne Market is pleased to offer members of the public, school groups and visitors to Melbourne, the opportunity to visit and experience the wonderful sights, smells, sounds and tastes of the wholesale markets. It’s a great opportunity for school groups to learn about the fresh produce industry and for social clubs, a group of friends or even the family to get together for an unforgettable and most enjoyable early morning experience. Tours are made possible by the “Tutti Fruitti Express”, a custom built electric train that winds its way through the actual trading floors of these busy wholesale markets. Tours can also be customized to suit industry groups eg chefs, apprentices.
*Note: Apart from pre-booked tours on the above tourist service the Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market and the National Flower Centre are generally closed to the public.
