Market Traditions

Is visiting Prahran Market on Christmas Eve one of your Christmas Traditions?  Perhaps you get here early and queue at Claringbold’s for the seafood? Or perhaps you come a little later and enjoy a coffee while soaking the atmosphere before picking up your preordered turkey or ham?  We spoke to a couple of regular traders and customers about what they do at the Market, each year.
