Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal Program
The $268 million renewal of the Queen Victoria Market precinct is well into delivery with a clear road map to complete the market improvements by end 2024 and broader precinct renewal commitments by 2026.
It is estimated that investment in renewal to revitalise the Queen Victoria Market precinct will attract 18 million visitors a year by 2051. And every dollar spent will return more than $4 into the local economy, delivering almost $1 billion in local area benefits.
To date, over half the market’s heritage sheds have been restored, a new 500-space underground market car park has opened and a new pop-up park with grass and seating has replaced asphalt car parks.
In 2022, the Food Court will be refurbished and construction will commence on two new buildings that will deliver contemporary facilities for all market workers, shoppers and visitors.
Queen Victoria Market will be open for business throughout the renewal with plans in place to ensure the market can maintain safe operations and continue to provide a great shopping experience.
The market is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Wednesday evenings during the seasonal Night Market. Visit for a wide variety of fresh produce, food, cafes, restaurants, specialty retail and services. Click here for trading hours.
