Melbourne Fruit & Veg Market Epping – David Hodgett
Melbourne Fruit & Veg Market Epping

Opened at Epping on 31 August 2015, the relocated Melbourne Market is Victoria’s wholesale fruit, vegetable and cut flower trading centre, and one of Australia’s largest fresh produce precincts.

One of Australia’s most significant industrial developments, the project attracted major private sector investment as part of a successful collaboration with the Liberal government. Located on a 60 hectare site, the new purpose-built facility is used by over 4,000 businesses as a base for buying and selling fresh produce for distribution across Victoria and Australia. The warehouse integrates supply chain logistics with the market, and is the largest warehousing precinct of any central market in Australia.

Project highlights

  • Construction of a state-of-the-art 120,000 sqm warehousing precinct.
  • The warehouse construction created over 200 jobs.
  • The warehouse is equivalent in length to 1.2 km or five Melbourne city blocks.
  • Over 1,800 individual buyers representing grocers, supermarkets, restaurants and food processors, source their produce direct from the market.
