Labour Day Public Holiday

The Flower Market will be closed on Monday 12 March for the Labour Day public holiday.

If your parking permit only allows access on a day where a public holiday falls, and you would like to come to the Market on an alternative adjacent day (for example your parking permit is for a Monday and you would like to access the Market on Tuesday 13 March), you will not be charged for parking and can enter the Market. However please note, your regular bay may not be available. Please seek instruction from a Market Relations Officer on arrival.

Warehouse access remains unchanged. Access for warehouse tenants is 24 hours 7 days a week

Don’t miss out on this FREE business forum!

The Department of Jobs and Small Business are holding an info session to help the Market community find out more about the services, programs and incentives that can help you secure staff.

  • work-related equipment and support while new employees settle in.

Find out more about how your jobactive provider can also provide you with access to wage subsidies of up to $10,000 (GST inclusive) to help you increase your workforce and help you to access work experience and internship programs, enabling you to trial a candidate before you hire.
