vegetable growers recall some of their experiences selling at Queen Victoria
Market, “The 3rd University of Melbourne ” where you could learn more business skills than anywhere else :)

Queen Vic market was built for horse & carts and there was quite a skill to parking larger trucks between the narrow stall posts. With no forklifts, all produce was stacked by hand and moved on wooden barrows.

Interviews with Les Giroud, John Milburn, Angelo Taranto, Luis Gazzola,
Peter Schreurs, Geoff Corrigan and Jack Walker.
