Melbourne's #1 Food Market

8 Decadent Market Cheesy Finds

The Best Melbourne Cheese Treats!

Cheese would have to be one of the most coveted delicacies at Prahran Market. In fact, we have some of the best Melbourne cheese treats around. That’s why we decided to devote an entire festival to it on October 22! With its smooth, creamy taste, sharp flavour, and amazing OOZE factor, the list of why cheese is so darn good goes on and on. At the Market, you’ll find everything from mouth-watering Swiss raclette and decadent all American cheese toasties, to moreish cheese croquettes, cheesy pasta dishes and more. And that doesn’t include the cheese itself! If you’re looking for a place that takes care of all your cheese needs, you’ve found it at Prahran Market.

Swiss Raclette – Maker & Monger
Maker & Monger’s Swiss raclette is known for drawing crowds. A traditional dish served throughout Europe, it’s been available at Maker & Monger for the past 12 months, and needs to be seen to be believed. Picture a delicious wheel of raclette cheese placed under a hot grill until it starts to heat and bubble. Once about a centimetre of cheese has melted, it’s gently scraped over shitake mushrooms, pickles and heritage potatoes – depending on the season! To say it’s delicious is an understatement.

Espresso BellaVitanoPete n Rosie’s Deli
Espresso and cheese? Don’t knock it until you try it! Pete n Rosie’s is home to a plethora of gourmet cheeses but this espresso BellaVitano is definitely one of our favourites. Freshly roasted espresso has been gently massaged into the sweet, sugary BellaVitano wheels, then aged to perfection. The result? A subtle espresso flavour against the creaminess of the cows’ milk cheese itself. Truly amazing.

Roast Beetroot & Goats’ Cheese Ravioli  – The Fresh Pasta Shop
Treat yourself to some of the best Melbourne cheese in the form of handmade take-home pasta from The Fresh Pasta Shop, and you won’t be disappointed. They’ve got a whole stack of pastas and sauces ready for you to heat up and enjoy – just like the super tasty roast beetroot with horse radish and goats’ cheese ravioli with ricotta! This super popular take-home meal is one of a kind and great for when you need dinner in a flash.

Assortment of Cheese – The Cheese Shop Deli
If you’re hosting a wine and cheese night, The Cheese Shop Deli has everything you need, starting with its incredible display fridge brimming with stacks of moreish cheeses ready to be gobbled up! Whether you’re after a strong camembert or a mild goats’; a rich cheddar or a creamy brie – they have it all. Plus, there are a heap of accompaniments too. How about some quince paste to pair with your wedge of blue? Read Angelo’s tips for creating the perfect cheese platter here.

American Grillz – Maker & Monger
We already mentioned Maker & Monger above but If you haven’t tried the all-American grillz, you need to ASAP! Loaded with two American cheeses, onions, parsley and cultured butter, this bad boy is not for the fainthearted. If you want ooze, you’ll get ooze. If you want decadence, you’ll get decadence; but be warned, after just one sandwich, you’ll be addicted. That’s a promise.

CroquetasCleo’s Deli
Cleo’s Deli’s Spanish croquetas are a wonderful accompaniment to salads, and make a great tapas inclusion when entertaining. Featuring rich manchego cheese encased in bread crumbs, these little guys are lightly fried just enough so the cheese oozes when you take a bite. In short: they’re melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

Tiramisu Gelato – Fritz Gelato
For organic gelato that packs a punch in the flavour department, Fritz Gelato is your number one stop. Visit for Fritz’s super tasty award-winning tiramisu and you’ll be blown away by the flavour combo. This superb concoction based on the popular Italian dessert showcases creamy mascarpone cheese intertwined with ladyfinger biscuits, cream, eggs, espresso coffee, marsala and a dash of cocoa! Our advice? Get two scoops.
