Renewing South Melbourne Market’s Food Hall

    Published 28 June 2022
    The new dining precinct will bring a new undercover outdoor seating area, thanks to the Australian Government's Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.

    A well-known destination for delicious food and popular with foodies, South Melbourne Market attracts many visitors. To accommodate visitors and enhance their dining experience, the new dining precinct will increase the dining capacity and improve safe movement around the Market. The outdoor seating area will also be usable all year round.

    Works to enhance the dining experience at South Melbourne Market began in late June 2022 and are expected to end in late August 2022.

    During this time, there will be some interruptions onsite while the new precinct is in development:

    • The entry to the Market Food Hall via the York Street carpark will be closed while the build is taking place. Visitors will be redirected to the closest Market entry on York Street (Deli Aisle) during this time.
    • As with any major construction project, noise and vibration impacts are expected from sources including piling, soil compaction, machinery and power tools. To reduce the impact to our Market and community, major works will take place outside of Market trading hours and sound levels monitored at all times.
