Queen Victoria Market is proud to be the home of more than 750 independently owned and operated food and retail businesses. Since its founding in 1878, many small businesses have opened their first store at the Market and found success within and beyond the Market.
We are continually seeking to improve and diversify the Market’s product offering and retail mix. Our goals are to continually engage with businesses that offer a strong point of difference and have a stand-out concept that offers quality, value-for-money products and services that build upon the Market’s reputation as a shopping destination.
We are also seeking new traders that support a sustainable value set, including locally made and designed products that are socially sustainable. In all areas of the market we are looking for innovative and creative businesses that demonstrate high visual presentation standards and identification, customer service and best business practices that align to the modern consumer.
