Located in Melbourne’s inner west, 6km from the CBD, Footscray has long been famous for Vietnamese food, thanks to its huge Vietnamese population. There’s now a large African population too, as well as other migrant communities, that continue to shape the food landscape and celebrate cultural diversity. There’s a blossoming arts scene in Footscray.
At the heart of this is the Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC), which has a lot of the community engaged. Original industries in this area were stone quarries and boiler works. The suburb was once quite gritty but is now uber cool and hipster. The famous Footscray Market opposite the train station is huge. Hunt for weird and wonderful Asian foods for sale (think lotus flowers, cassava root and Asian greens) as well as the usual seafood, meat, poultry and fresh fruit and veggies. When you’re ready for a lunch stop, grab a pho at one of the many Vietnamese eateries, visit a pub or grab some Indian or Italian food.
