It’s time to meet the Melbourne Market
Did you know the main distributor for Melbourne’s fruit, vegetables and cut flowers is only around a 10-minute drive from Aurora? The Melbourne Market is the central distribution point for 4,000 businesses around Victoria.
Located at 55 Produce Drive, Epping, the market boasts a 12,500 square metre fruit and vegetable trading floor, which has the capacity for 330 stands. Separate to this trading floor is the wholesale flower market; since Victoria produces around 40% of the national market for cut flowers, the market is vital for flower growers and sellers all around the state.
It’s estimated that the Melbourne Market has about $2 billion worth of produce pass through it every year. The economy-boosting market has employment vacancies available occasionally and these openings present a great opportunity for Aurora residents, due to the market’s close proximity.

The Wholesale Flower Warehouse isn’t open to the general public, but you can book tours to experience it.
