Children in the Market wrap up

Despite the chilly conditions there were many children who had fun visiting the Market recently to discover and learn about what takes place.

It was a successful couple of days and thank you to those family members who brought their children and ensured they remained safe at all times.

Stay tuned for information in the future about the next Children in the Market event.

Celebration of 40 years at the Market

Congratulations to Giuseppe Cidoni from Flowers of Melbourne who recently celebrated 40 years of continuous service to the Market.

Giuseppe started working part-time when he was eight-years-old delivering papers and started full-time work when he was 15.

He said he had a lot of nice memories of his time in the Market which was full of “beautiful people”.

Although he has now retired he still comes to the Market to visit his son.

It’s an incredible achievement and we thank you for your contribution, Giuseppe.
