Things you need to know when shopping and visiting the Market
Vaccinations (Customers) – Under the current Victorian Government Directions, there is no requirement for customers to be vaccinated to attend Queen Victoria Market. However, there are requirements for individual businesses within our market including dine in hospitality (for patrons over the age of 18), hairdressing and beauty services where you will be required to show proof of vaccination.
Vaccination (Traders) – All traders are required to comply with the Victorian Government COVID-19 vaccination mandate. Please refer to the Department of Health and Human Services website for more information regarding COVID-19 rules and restrictions.
QR Code check-in – QR Code check-in is still mandatory at the Market’s hospitality businesses, please do the right thing and ensure you are checking in with your phone through the QR code signage provided.
Masks – All Market traders and their employees are required to wear a mask when indoors unless a medical exemption applies.
Social distancing - Please adhere to the 1.5 metre guideline and maintain a safe distance between yourself and others at all times.
Good hygiene – Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water or use one of the many hand sanitiser stations located throughout the Market. Please also make sure to cover your mouth and nose with your elbow when coughing or sneezing or use a tissue and discard immediately.
Touching produce – Please limit the touching of fresh produce and ask our friendly traders for help.
Extensive and additional cleaning – We have extra cleaning staff onsite and are conducting hospital-grade cleaning to ensure the safety of all our shoppers. We are employing both proactive and reactive measures to ensure that high traffic surfaces such as door handles, bench tops, ATM machines, handrails and bathrooms remain clean to minimise the spread of germs.
Pack your own reusable bags – We ask all customers to pack your own bags rather than hand your bag to traders.
Use contactless payments where possible – Cash tends to be a carrier for a variety of germs and bacteria, so we encourage customers to make use of contactless card payments where possible.
Food safety – All stallholders have adopted an increased vigilance with regard to food safety compliance. This is in addition to already existing requirements for traders to maintain high levels of sanitation for themselves and their stalls.
If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, please look after yourself and the wider community by resting at home.
