Thank you for all your support throughout 2017, it’s been a huge year and we’ve loved celebrating our 150th anniversary with you all.
Some things we have celebrated this year:
We welcomed a record 5 million people!
A piece of history was returned to the Market – the bell – which has not been seen since 1929. It now rings to open and close trade every Market day.
Our Big BBQ Street Party celebrated our official 150th birthday in May with non-stop music and delicious street food.
We shocased some of our traders’ market stories and their contribution to our vibrancy, personality, community and history.
We gave away the trip of a lifetime to Markets in London & Rome to the luckiest winner Marnee Watkins!
Cam Scale, one of Melbourne’s best street artists, created a collection of murals which now adorn our walls, representing the changing faces of the Market.
We continue towards a greener, more sustainable future with the diversion of most of our organic waste and the production of two garden products from this waste – Market Magic vermicompost and South Melbourne Market Soil Food.
Thanks to our loyal community of shoppers, traders, locals and visitors for your support and for choosing South Melbourne Market. We wish you all a happy and safe holiday filled with great food, family, friends and fun.
