Belinda from the fruit and vegetable pavilion at the Queen Victoria Market says crowds have been rushing through to collect their cherries – which were particularly big and beautiful this year.

The fruiterer said she arrived at the markets at 1am and had been serving customers since 3:45am on Christmas Eve.

The Queen Victoria Market began an online order system six weeks ago.

While there were huge crowds at the market on Christmas Eve, hundreds of others placed their Christmas orders online also.
