Coronavirus (COVID-19) update – Thursday 15 July (updated)

From midnight tonight, Thursday 15 July, Victoria will enter a 5-day, stage-four lockdown in response to the growing COVID outbreak.

The Melbourne Market, including the fruit and vegetable market and the flower market, remains open with regular trading hours; we are essential in Victoria’s fresh produce supply chain. 

The following changes will come into effect at the Melbourne Market from midnight tonight:

– Fitted face masks will be required to be worn at all times while on market land, in both indoor and outdoor
– Market cafes will no longer provide seated service and will return to take away service only. 
– Gates 2 and 3 and the P1 pedestrian turnstile will be closed, with all vehicle and foot traffic required to come
through Gate 1; this allows Market Relations Officers to ensure that all market users are wearing a face mask. 
– Only one person per electric vehicle or buggy, no passengers

Access to the market is limited to essential personnel only. Any visitors registering at Gate 1 security will be questioned as to the nature of their visit. If the purpose of the visit is not deemed essential, access to the market will not be granted.
