Market News

One year on, tell us what you think of the Market

It’s hard to believe it’s been one year since the move to our new home in Epping. The persistence, commitment and support from the Market community during this time has been exceptional.

The MMA relies heavily on feedback from the Market community to ensure we continuously improve the operation of the Melbourne Market.

Your ongoing support is required to assist us with understanding the current priorities of the Market Community.

So tell us, have your views changed and what are your priorities going forward? 

The survey will be sent out electronically later this week. Make sure you keep an eye out for it in your inbox. Every entry goes in the draw to win a $100 Crown gift card.

Disabled toilet access

Recently we’ve been working to upgrade the locks on the disabled toilets. This work has now been completed and all disabled toilets now require swipe access for entry.

This work ensures disabled toilets are clean and available for those who need them.

If you require access to disabled toilets in the Market, please visit the Customer Service Centre between 4:00am and 11:00am Monday to Friday or call them on 9258 6123 to have this access applied to your Market access card.
