Shops in Fitzroy

Updated 2 months ago


The people walking the streets of Fitzroy tell the story of the shops you will find there. Pre-loved fashion has found its home here. Shopfronts display a mixture of art, design, bookshops (new and second-hand), on-trend fashion, local designers and much that is a little unusual. From a new bike to a new haircut, Fitzroy provides you with options. Here are some of our top picks.

Looking for something specific?

  • This Melbourne fashion label's store has exposed brick, plenty of natural light and is filled with minimalist, carefully considered and sustainable pieces.

  • Sydney's favourite gelato chain is just as popular in Melbourne. Sometimes going for an ice-cream here – with the big crowds, cool staff and house music blaring – feels more like waiting in line at nightclub. It would almost be frustrating, if the gelato here weren't so good.

  • A high-grade sushi bar and an impressive pantry of hard-to-find Japanese groceries. Stop in for fresh sushi, sweet daifuku, noodles, pickling starter packs and more. Or pick up Japanese ceramics, konro barbeques, glassware and knives for your own kitchen.

  • Most of the hunting has been done for you at this vintage and second-hand clothing boutique, which is organised by dedicated volunteers from the Brotherhood of St Laurence. The racks are tight with pre-loved clothes (both vintage and contemporary), accessories, shoes, homewares and plenty of knick-knacks.

  • The first store of the high-quality, local label.

  • Hand-made beautifully simple, yet deceptively intricate porcelain homewares.

  • Satisfying Melbourne’s soul and funk cravings since 2002.

  • Melbourne-designed practical and travel-friendly garments.

  • Honest, heritage workwear keeping the lights on for a vanishing industry.

  • High-quality botanical skin, hair and body products.

  • Melbourne fashion at its best, Alpha60, run by brother-sister duo, Alex and Georgie Cleary, showcases monochrome basics, classic styles and cuts.

  • Harking back to an era when 'organic food' was simply called 'food'.

  • Authentic Hispanic ingredients and smallgoods since 1975.

  • Craft and DIY focused ... but not exclusively for to nannas and crafters.

  • The floor is quite literally paved with sour-strap lollies. The flavours include grape Aeroplane Jelly, Vegemite-white choc and smoked Cherry Ripe. And you can go on a sampling spree before you commit to any one scoop.

  • Double Monk shelters some of the world’s most famous men’s shoes.
