Melbourne's #1 Food Market

Humans of Prahran Market

Meet the Humans of Prahran Market.

*New videos currently being released – May 2024*

Beyond the incredible array of delicious foods, delightful gifts, and charming treasures at Prahran Market – lies the extraordinary tales of the compassionate Traders behind each stall.

For over a century, since our inception in 1864, a multitude of individuals from diverse backgrounds have embarked on their entrepreneurial journeys, opening their hearts along with their businesses to market visitors.

We invite you to meet the people behind the stalls and explore their stories. Some are inspiring tales of success and rich cultural anecdotes, while others will remind you of the challenges life often presents. The one thing they all share is a love of our market and the people that visit.

In sharing these stories with you, we’re proud to have partnered with Plate For A Mate to unite those with a love of food and raise awareness and vital funds for the Black Dog Institute, aiding the treatment and prevention of conditions such as anxiety and depression.
