30.06.2020Queen Vic Market | Support Local

Your weekend plans are sorted with the announcement that the Queen Vic Market will reopen its general merchandise sections, sheds A-F, after being closed for almost three months, so go shop local and support traders 

After experiencing a 90 per cent drop in revenue due to COVID-19City of Melbourne will step in to deliver financial help for Queen Victoria Market (QVM). 

About 140 speciality shops and stalls will open on Friday in sheds A to F, but sheds on the city side of the market will be closed for restoration work. 

Market chief executive Stan Liacos said pedestrian flows were back to between 50 and 70 per cent of pre-COVID traffic but the market had suffered an 90 per cent drop in revenue. 

“The pandemic has led to considerable strain on QVM management because we have not been eligible for JobKeeper and so support from the City of Melbourne has been arranged over the next few months to help ensure our viability and underpin us coming successfully out of the pandemic.
