My housemate Russ is from Manchester, UK. He has lived here for over four years though, so considers himself almost local. The benefits of living with a local are that you discover hidden gems far quicker than you would on your own, if at all. Today I was invited to go with Russ and his son to Prahran Market. Something I had never heard of, but they told me there would be free sausage samples, so I agreed to go.
It’s a market, but a good one. I’m glad I was introduced to it and even more glad that I got to see a new part of Melbourne’s suburbs. Chapel Street goes on a lot more than I had initially realised!

I will definitely be returning to this market for some fresh produce and free sausage samples (they were so good). It was great to find a place that has an essence of community. Going by my first impressions Prahran seems to be a nice mix of the class of South Yarra and the character of Brunswick Street, can’t wait to explore more!
