Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne's greatest landmarks. Occupying seven hectares in the heart of the City.  Constructed in stages from 1860s and officially opened on 20th March 1878, it is the largest open-air market in Australia and the most intact of Melbourne's Victorian-era markets still operating.  The site is on the Land of the Kulin Nations and is also significant as Melbourne's first cemetery, from 1837 to 1854.  The historical significance was recognised by the National Trust in 1970, and in 1989 it was listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.  It was also added to the National Heritage List, based on two key heritage values;  its links to the early colonial population of Melbourne and its ability to demonstrate the principal characteristics of a 19th-century metropolitan produce market. Every year 10 million visitors flock to the market's meat, fish & dairy produce halls and historic sheds to purchase a range of fresh and speciality produce, clothing, jewellery, homewares, plants and handcrafts.
