Traders will be aware that a number of stallholders report sales data on a weekly basis so that we can track significant trends. Our online sales data collection has recorded a significant boost for last Thursday’s (24th) market sales.
The previous evening’s State of Origin Match at Etihad Stadium drew large numbers of NSW and particularly Queensland fans to Melbourne and they apparently put the top end of the QVM on their visiting list the following day.
Traders sales on Thursday 24th May more than doubled recent Thursday sales and confirmed once again just how important tourists are to our survival. We simply must find ways of maximising tourist attendance at our market.
