Busking

We are often on the lookout for new talent or ideas to ensure a visit to the Market is full of surprise, moments and wonder for all, whether it be a new mural, community engagement activity, live music, artwork or a roving performance.

If you’ve got some creative ideas or are interested in contributing to our Market, please submit an Expression of Interest below.

The market has reopened the busking program in a limited capacity to past permit holders. There are two spaces open:

  • Cecil St outside The Village Juicery

To book a place, please register your name at the market office in the centre aisle when you arrive, or call 03 9209 6295 and select a one-hour time slot during market hours on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and or Sundays.
