WHEN: Thursday 13 - Saturday 15 October, 10:00AM - 4:00PM
We’re passionate about every aspect of small business, and love sharing that passion with others. We also get that setting up shop in any major city can be hard: rent is expensive, and the competition can be fierce. So we’ve decided to bring the best of Melbourne’s small business community right to the centre of the city for everyone to celebrate and enjoy.
This week we’re taking over a retail shop in the middle of one of Melbourne’s busiest strips. We’ve invited an exciting selection of your favourite local businesses (and Square sellers!) to join us to sell directly to the public, while competing with some of Australia’s biggest businesses right on their home turf. They’re bringing the best that they can offer to eat, drink and purchase for three special days. Welcome to the Square pop-up.
Stop in to the Square pop-up and enjoy your favourite snacks, beverages and shopping with businesses you know and love:
- Those Girls
- Butter Mafia
- Chai Walli
- Knick Knack Collections
- Miss Molly’s Cakes
- Cobb Lane Bakery
- Hunted + Gathered
- Candied Bakery
- Ace Cookies and Mylk
- Tinka the Label
…and many more.
If you happen to tap your card (or even pay with Apple Pay or Android Pay) using the new Square contactless and chip reader, our sellers may be offering some very special deals—so get in, and get tapping!
The Square team will also be on site daily, ready to tell you all about our newest contactless and chip reader, and delivering small business seminars to share some of the tips and tricks of the trade. Every seminar is free to access, with new events and discussions daily.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Square pop-up this week.

Is there an entry fee?
Entry is free. Stop in as many times as you like and support the local businesses of Melbourne.
Do I need to book to attend a seminar?

I don’t live in Melbourne. Are you taking the Square pop-up anywhere else?
We haven’t forgotten the rest of Australia. We’re excited to bring the Square pop-up to Sydney later this year.
