A nice local neighbourhood to explore - nice restaurants, cafes, bars, music venues, shops. One for the hipsters. Tahina is a great value restaurant here. Northcote social club is a staple for live music.

Markets
Great local market with fresh fruit, veg and groceries and a wide range of ready to eat fare. Great for the seafood lovers, as you can grab oysters and paella by the plate load. I personally prefer this to the queen vic market as it is less touristy. There are some nice gifts, fashion and homewares for sale here too.
