About Melbourne Market Authority

The Melbourne Market Authority (MMA) consists of a five member Board, each appointed by the Minister for Major Projects under the provisions of the Melbourne Market Act 1977, which also stipulates the objectives and functions of the Authority. The Authority is supported by a management and staff team who are responsible for the day to day operations of the MMA.


The Objectives of the MMA are to:

  • Provide a commercially viable wholesale facility for the efficient distribution of fresh produce;
  • Optimize returns on land and assets controlled and managed by the Authority;
  • Ensure a fair and competitive environment for the wholesale trading of produce.

The functions of the Melbourne Market Authority are to:

  • Control, maintain and manage the Melbourne Markets site;
  • Promote the use of the facilities of the Melbourne Markets site
  • Provide advice and information to the Minister on matters relating to the Market and its use by industry and on industry related matters generally;
  • Do all things necessary or convenient to enable the Authority to achieve its objects; and
  • Do all things the Authority is authorised or required to do under this or any other Act or law.

Our Corporate Vision is:

To operate a wholesale market that is recognised for its excellence and industry leadership, and which is a preferred venue for the sale and distribution of fresh produce and flowers.

Our Corporate Mission is:

To provide quality facilities and services that support sales, distribution and value-adding of fresh produce and flowers, and to work with our market community and the Victorian Government to transfer market activity from the current Footscray Road site to the new market at Cooper Street, Epping.
