Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market eyes wholesale trade

Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market (QVM) has introduced ‘Wholesale Tuesday’, a weekly initiative calling out the local hospitality industry to connect and source products from wholesale market traders.

Wholesale Tuesday will be joined by 27 traders from different categories, including fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs and spices, artisan bread, cheeses, antipasto, small goods, specialised meat cuts, eggs, seafood, speciality tea and coffee.

“Wholesale business traces right back to the very foundations of our city market and it continues to be an enduring part of Queen Victoria Market’s history,” said Stan Liacos, CEO of QVM.

“Offering insight from traders with an in-depth knowledge of food, product and provenance, Wholesale Tuesday represents a one-stop shop for small businesses looking for quality products coupled with a convenient, personable and reliable service.”

Hospitality operators, chefs, publicans and caterers can access wholesale deals, weekly-recommended produce and seasonal produce at QVM every Tuesday from this week.

“Wholesale Tuesday is a terrific example of how Queen Victoria Market traders and city-based businesses can mutually support each other while contributing to the critical recovery of Melbourne’s hospitality industry,” said Sally Capp, City of Melbourne Lord Mayor.
