The City of Melbourne is undertaking a major renewal of Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Market and surrounding precinct.

The renewal project aims to secure Queen Victoria Market’s place as a traditional open-air market. Through renewal we will restore the market’s heritage while delivering facilities to make the market work better for traders, customers and visitors.

Since announcing the renewal of the market precinct in 2013, the City of Melbourne has worked closely with traders, the community and key stakeholders to plan for the careful restoration and revitalisation of this seven hectare site in the heart of the city. The ideas have reinforced the need to secure the market as a traditional open air market.

Alongside the heritage market, the City of Melbourne is also planning for the surrounding precinct in order to provide for the growing community.
