Call For Historic Photos of The Market

Do you have any old photos of the market, particularly your business at the market?

A Queen Vic Market Heritage Forum is being conducted at the end of March and organisers would love your old photos. Send them to Angela Shen or simply contact Angela at

We published details of the forum a little while back but here they are again –

The Queen Victoria Market site has a long and important history.
You’re invited to join a conversation about how we can preserve and acknowledge this history as we prepare to renew the market.
The first community forum as part of the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal Program will be held on 29 March 2017.
We will provide an overview of some of the heritage values of the site, the planning and strategies we have in place to preserve the market’s history and encourage you to share your ideas and proposals for activities to promote the history of the site during and beyond the renewal program.
Panellists will include heritage consultant and architect Peter Lovell, research fellow in digital ethnography at RMIT, Shanti Sumartojo and Karl Boening from American Donut Kitchen, a market institution since the 1950’s. This will be followed by a workshop to explore ideas and suggestions on preserving and celebrating the market’s heritage.
When:             5.15pm for 5.30pm start to 7.30 pm, Wednesday, 29 March 2017
Where:            Blue Room, Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne (directly opposite the market)

RSVP:             By Monday 27 March to or call 9658 9658
