The South Melbourne Market is a much-loved and iconic shopping destination in Melbourne.

Now as society navigates out of the COVID-19 pandemic it is crucial that South Melbourne Market has a strong framework to ensure it continues to deliver a positive and enjoyable experience to our community, a safe and prosperous place of trade for the business owners, and a financially sustainable asset for Port Phillip Council.

We are developing a Plan, which sets out a strategic roadmap for the Market over the next five years to ensure it is in the best position to tackle the challenges ahead.

What’s happened so far?

Earlier this year we asked for feedback on our draft strategic priorities to help inform our draft South Melbourne Market Strategic Plan 2021-25.

Based on this feedback, we revised the key strategic priorities for the Market to focus on alongside “business as usual” to secure the brightest and most prosperous future for the Market, it’s traders, and the local economy.

In May we asked for feedback on the draft South Melbourne Market Strategic Plan 2021-25. We are currently reviewing this feedback and finalising the draft plan before it is considered for endoresement by Council in June.
