Bring the market to life

Market Update: COVID-19
As at Monday 23 March

In light of the current health crisis, we have ceased accepting busking permit applications at this time.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding while we work through this. For any enquiries, please contact us at smm@portphillip.vic.gov.au.

We are often on the lookout for new talent or ideas to ensure a visit to the Market is full of surprise, moments and wonder for all, whether it be a new mural, community engagement activity, live music, artwork or a roving performance.

If you’ve got some creative ideas or are interested in contributing to our Market, please submit an Expression of Interest here.


Do you have a special talent you’d like to share?

The Market is a great place for buskers.

Buskers require a permit to perform at the Market, but do not have to book in advance – you simply need to turn up on the day. A 12-month permit costs $50, or $20 if are under 15.

There are six busking spots available at the Market, and we ask that you rotate after a maximum of 45 minutes. Apart form that, it is first in best dressed!

If you would like to apply for a permit, please complete the form below and ensure you have read the terms and conditions.
