Cecil Street, the Market’s much-loved culinary strip is getting a makeover for summer! We’re excited to be extending the outdoor area on the Cecil Street side of the Market to create a safe, inviting and accessible space for our Market community to enjoy. Visitors can grab a bite, sit and mingle with family and friends while soaking in the wonderful Market atmosphere.
From 4 January through until March 2021, the northbound lane of Cecil Street (between York & Coventry Streets) will be closed to vehicles and diverted to Coventry Street. Bicycle access will be maintained and moved to the right-hand side of the close lane.
South Melbourne Market is a very important public place for social and cultural interaction, and we are excited to be able to provide this space to our much-loved community. This space will also support some of our restaurants to increase their outdoor dining capacity as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.
