Pickadeli at shop 4 & 5 at the South Melbourne Market has been operating since 1992 when owner and operator Koula Rokas was inspired on one of her overseas trips to establish and operate a food store filled with delicacies that are as much a treat to browse through as they are to buy.
Choose from a huge array of local artisan produce as well as the best of imported product. Cheeses are carefully bought for their quality and flavor. In addition to our cheese we also have a shop floor dedicated to well sourced produce such as jams, chutneys, fresh baked artisan breads, pastries and cakes. Extra virgin olive oils, vinegars and all the essential dry store ingredients are there for you to explore, enjoy and be inspired by.
The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable of our products and are happy to help with any food related inquiries.
We invite you to browse our web site and be tempted by our product or come and visit our store during market trading days.

Herald Sun Weekend Review
Pickadeli has long been the undisputed queen of delicatessens at South Melbourne Market. In recent times other quality stores have opened in the market but the huge offering and ability to browse through the products here makes this a great shopping experience. The array of cheese is excellent and has the best quality smallgoods possible with Jonathan’s hams, rare roast beef and prime sausages. The shelves are filled with grocery items from olive oils and pasta to muesli, jams and sauces. Another thing they do exceptionally well is the vast choice of mini-food bites such as arancini balls, Thai chicken balls, mini involtini and baby quiches.
