New Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market in Epping
Melbourne’s New Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market is an exciting project building a modern, innovative and efficient fresh produce trading and distribution precinct located in Epping in Melbourne’s north. The market is an important part of the state’s economic infrastructure, with an annual turnover in excess of $1.6 billion. The core of the precinct will be the relocated Melbourne Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market and National Flower Centre currently located in Footscray Road in West Melbourne.
The precinct will also include an extensive, complementary development accommodating facilities and businesses that improve and develop the transportation, handling and marketing of fresh produce.
The Melbourne Market relocation project is about more than just relocating a facility from one site to another. It is about ensuring the ongoing viability and relevance of the market as an essential link in the distribution channel for fresh produce in Australia.
Works commenced onsite at the end of 2009 and the market is expected to be being fully operational in 2014/2015.
