Countdown to Reopening

Dear Marketeers,

Fantastic news about Melbourne continuing to open up again over coming days and weeks.

We have been following up with local council about what this means for the market, and opportunities for a pre-Christmas opening.

Fingers crossed, and I will let you know as soon as possible.

The above message is from Paul, Market Manager.

We are in this together

By avoiding large gatherings, masking up, washing hands, social distancing and following the latest health advice, we will all get to the other side of this in the best shape possible.

We are indeed in this together. Every single Rotary volunteer, stall holder and visitor is impacted by Covid-19. And the millions of visitors’ parents, partners, children, grandparents, friends, work colleagues and even staff at their local coffee shop. We are all at risk and, like you, we will do our bit to keep each other safe.

Update: 1 August 2020:

Due to Covid-19 transmission rates and increasing mandatory public health measures in Victoria, the Camberwell Sunday Market remains closed.

• Will the market be open next weekend? No, sorry.
• When will the market reopen? Unknown at this point, but we will reopen when safe to do so.

Fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy to get to the other side

Perhaps the most famous pirate ships in modern history: the Millennium Falcon.

Lingering in many hearts and mind of children and nostalgic adults, is the Millennium Falcon. The Falcon debuted in the original Star Wars movie of 1977 under the command of Han Solo and Wookiee named Chewbacca.

The space freighter that Han affectionately called the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” was photographed when the Falcon was last spotted at the Camberwell Market.

Perhaps the only space ship greater – debatably – is the starship USS Enterprise.

Either way, a little bit of light speed, or a jump to hyperspace, to get us all to the ‘other side’ of this pandemic would be welcome.

It goes without saying, the Stage 3 coronavirus restrictions on Greater Melbourne mean we will continue to remain closed for the foreseeable future. In answer to FAQ’s, please see below:
