This revitalised covered market has enjoyed an eye-catching renaissance in the past half-dozen years, prompted by an initiative to offer a period of free rent to outfits setting up in the dilapidated 1930s Granville Arcade. Cafes and restaurants have swarmed in as well as a host of inventively inclined shops, which happily cohabit with butchers, greengrocers and bazaars.
The 'village' is lively day and night and has a lovely, eclectic atmosphere. Shops worth popping into include Woo Woo Boutique (unit 97), selling vintage-inspired fashion, and African Queen (unit 30), piled to the rafters with colourful West African fabrics and headdresses. The village is full of lunch spots and restaurants – check out Champagne + Fromage and Honest Burgers, among others.
