Beyond Commercial Road in Prahran proper, Chapel Street focuses on street-smart fashion, becoming progressively more downmarket as it heads south. Landmarks include Prahran Market (Tues, Thurs & Sat 7am–5pm, Fri 7am–6pm, Sun 10am–3pm), an excellent, though expensive, food emporium (fish, meat, fruit, vegetables and delicatessen) plus cafés and a few clothes shops. On the western side of Chapel Street, Chapel Street Bazaar has an amazing array of secondhand clothes, Art Deco jewellery, furniture and bric-a-brac. Just opposite, tucked away in Little Chapel Street, Chapel off Chapel (03 8290 7000) provides a venue for an eclectic mix of theatre performances, music and art exhibitions.
