Market Infrastructure Works

Another significant Renewal project is kicking off in 2024 is the Market Infrastructure works.

Market Infrastructure works commenced in February 2024 following the restoration of H and I Sheds and will deliver dedicated trader and public amenities and essential back of house infrastructure located within close proximity of traders.

The new infrastructure will finally bring the Market’s operations into the 21st century and ensure we meet modern health, safety and environmental sustainability standards, while also making the Market an even better place to visit and shop.

The Market Infrastructure project will deliver:

  • A new Trader Shed to replace the 1980s meat delivery and offal building (G Shed) currently located between H Shed and the Meat and Fish Hall. The purpose-built building will include loading docks; climate-controlled trader storage; improved waste and recycling facilities; dedicated trader toilets, showers and lunchrooms; and new customer toilets, family room and accessible toilet.
  • A new Northern Shed basement in Queen Street will provide centralised waste and recycling facilities for the entire Market, including organic waste, and segregated loading facilities in Queen Street to improve safety.

This is a big piece of work and will involve excavation to 20 metres deep for the four-level basement and construction of a three-storey high structure.

Temporary closure of H and I Sheds and relocation of traders during works

In January 2023, H and I Shed traders (which includes some fruit and veg, organics and specialty stalls) temporarily relocated to C and D Sheds and will remain in this location for approximately 3 years while shed restorations and Market Infrastructure works occur.

View the map for more information about how to get to C and D Sheds and where your favourite H and I Shed traders are temporarily located.

Following their restoration, H and I Sheds are being utilised for builder setup, trader amenities and back of house facilities during Market Infrastructure works.

Onsite signage, wayfinding and promotion will be in place at each stage of these works to ensure Market visitors are aware of what is happening and can find their way around the Market.

More detailed information on the Market Infrastructure project is available on the City of Melbourne’s website.

A Shed Toilet Works

We are pleased to share that works are commencing on the refurbishment of the Victoria Street toilets.

The upgrades will modernise the restroom facilities and also address demand by increasing the number of female toilets available.

Works are scheduled to be complete by late May 2024.
