Melbourne’s oldest permanent market, South Melbourne Market kicked off May in style last weekend, welcoming eight brand new traders into the fold and celebrating appropriately by launching the Autumn Trail experience. Running throughout the entire month of May, the Autumn Trail experience will encourage market-goers to download a map of the Autumn Trail and set off on their own adventure to discover the new stalls.
New traders include contemporary eatery Proper & Son, Tea Drop brew bar and retail store, Catch Seafood (No Bones About It), Azalea Florist, The Australian Natural Soap Company and Miss Nail Bar. South Melbourne Fresh Fruit Centre has also branched out into organic produce as consumers demand answers about where their food comes from. The arrival of Boisdale Best means a new era in fresh produce, leaving the farm gate and arriving ready for your plate in mere hours. Boisdale Best supply market-goers with handpicked vegetables and fruit from their farm in Gippsland with the aim of reducing food miles and encouraging a more sustainable food system.
