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.
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. Grab a bite to eat from one of our takeaway food vendors and settle down on the bright green synthetic turf. Our Cecil St restaurants have also increased their outdoor dining capacity so enjoy the warmer and longer days, bring your hat and sunscreen and watch the sunset go down over beautiful South Melbourne Market.
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 closed lane.
