It’s the place to go to pick up super fresh produce and be entertained by the hawker-style vendors. Don’t forget some tasty study snacks and perhaps some fresh flowers to brighten up your room. No time to get to the markets? Don’t worry, there’s a convenience store on the ground floor of Student Living - 740 Swanston.
