Square Market
The Atrium, Federation Square

Global payments technology company Square has invited Melbourne’s favourite small business heroes to join it for Square Market, a unique popup marketplace celebrating small business at Federation Square.

Over three days, businesses that you know and love—Market Lane Coffee, Shortstop Coffee & Donuts, Mork Chocolate, That Dapper Chap, Butterbing Cookies, Those Girls, Cobb Lane Bakery, Adriano Zumbo, Sensory Lab, Hunters’ Roots, 5 & Dime Bagel and many more—are joining emerging artists, homewares designers, illustrators, crafters and buskers to sell direct to the public at one of the city’s most iconic destinations.

“Whether you’re looking for great coffee or doughnuts, local art to street art, markets or makers, Melbourne has something to for everyone to enjoy, ” commented Square’s Australian Country manager, Ben Pfisterer. “Melbourne’s small businesses are as diverse as its neighbourhoods. Since opening our office in Melbourne in May 2015, Square has partnered with and powered the local small business community and we wanted to give back to the heroes who help create this diverse and interesting element of Melbourne’s cultural identity.”

Different sellers are invited back on different days, to create a constantly changing and evolving retail space where small businesses can trade to a bustling crowd and compete with bigger businesses right on their home turf. Ben Pfisterer said, “Square is committed to empowering sellers with the tools to grow their business, and Square Market is all about giving sellers a platform to promote themselves, sell their products or service and offer a memorable customer experience designed to bring customers back to their business again and again in the future.”

Square Market is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from 9–11 March. Enter via The Atrium at Flinders Street, Federation Square. Entry to Square Market is completely free. Stop in and support Melbourne’s finest small businesses.
