- Market Street, Melbourne
Market Street is the only major deviation to the Hoddle Grid, in that it only runs between Flinders Street and Collins Street, such that its vista is terminated by the art-deco Temple Court building on Collins Street.
The street was named after the Western Market, Melbourne's first official fresh food and vegetable market, which operated on the site now occupied by SunCorp (formerly National Mutual, and more recently AXA) office building, on the block occupied by Collins, Market and William Streets, and Flinders Lane.
