STALLS, POP-UPS, BUSKING

With over 5 million visitors through our doors each year and a reputation for having some of the best fresh produce and shopping in Melbourne, stall opportunities at the Market are rare and not to be missed.

All available stalls, including vacant stalls and sales of existing businesses, are filled using a formal expression of interest (EOI) process.

Current stall opportunities can be found below. Each EOI advertised will have all the information you need about the stall, including the size, price, length of licence and the type of offer that will be considered for the space being advertised. The type of offer being sought is determined by the South Melbourne Market Mix Strategy and is therefore not negotiable.
