Major power shutdown in the Market
On Saturday 2 September the Melbourne Market will be undergoing routine maintenance for the high voltage power supply.
This means the entire Market will have no power for the duration of the maintenance period from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
The Flower Market will need to be vacated as soon as trading has completed to allow for cleaning of the site before the power is shut down.
You will receive a letter shortly with all the details you need to know.
You can also check out the information on the MMA website here.
