Join us at Square Market to celebrate the best of Melbourne small business

WHERE: The Atrium at Federation Square, Melbourne City Centre

WHEN: Wednesday 9 - Friday 11 March, 9:00AM - 4:00PM

COST: Free

We love small businesses. We’re inspired by stories of plucky entrepreneurs who work hard to realise their dreams. We think coffee and baked goods simply taste better when they’re made in small batches. We dig the aesthetic of locally designed homewares. Our days are brightened chatting with merchants in our favourite local shops. They love what they do and it shows. Here at Square, we’ve built our business around nurturing small businesses and helping them grow.

This March we’re bringing together the very best of Melbourne’s small business heroes for Square Market at Federation Square. Join us for a unique, pop-up marketplace packed with the best coffee and donuts, Butterbings and iced tea, emerging artists and homewares designers, illustrators and crafters, that we could find.

Over three days, businesses you know and love, and some local gems you haven’t discovered yet, are joining Square to sell to a bustling crowd and compete with bigger businesses right on their home turf.

Pick up a coffee from Market Lane and a donut from Shortstop to snack on for morning tea. Head back at lunchtime for a bagel by 5 & Dime and a refreshing iced tea by Those Girls. Swing back for an afternoon treat by Adriano Zumbo or Mork Chocolate. Check out the terrariums by Plant by Packwood, cheeky stationery by Mi Goals and jewellery by Tinka the Label or Two Sourced. All of these businesses, plus many more, will be selling at Square Market.
