Heard Under The Sheds – 12/8/2018

A trader has pointed out that Parking Vouchers are in short supply again with Friday’s allocation running out by 7:15 am. He argued that we do need to make sure the system is working to full benefit for those traders who need to bring their vehicles into the market for business reasons.

Another Night Market – we have reports of a new night market starting up soon to bridge the gap between the Winter Night Market and the Summer Night Market which usually kicks off in November. Apparently this market will be Asian focused with food and goods sourced from Asia.

The Saturday Brewing Precinct in A Shed operates through to 9:00pm which has delighted a couple of traders who visited after their trading time. Why should customers get all the fun?

A trader spotted an article during the week on the American inspired food and drink delights available in Melbourne. He was disappointed it didn’t include the American Doughnut Kitchen. How could they leave out that market icon?

Car Parking - Some more speculation from some traders about the placement of the additional 280 car spaces promised by CoM for market customers. Apparently the Peoples Panel will consider the options.

We hear that our new General manager Operations, Mark Bullen, has passed one of his sternest tests yet - an interrogation from Betty Jennings. Well done Mark!
