Time Out Melbourne

Diversity reigns at this busy weekday market

They reckon over 40% of Footscray's population was born outside Australia and this market is beautiful proof of it. Little stalls representing Vietnam, Greece, China, Italy and Africa jostle for attention during the week with fresh food on the breeze and bargain bric-a-brac scattered across the tables.
