🧧 新年快樂
🧧 #HappyNewYear

Wishing everyone a safe, prosperous and happy New Lunar Year! Bringing in the year of the Ox and the lunar new year is celebrated by Malaysian, Vietnamese, Chinese and may Asian cultures that make up the rich fabric of multicultural Victoria and the heritage of many of market visitors and sellers.

It’s a cultural red letter weekend with the Lunar New Year 🧧 and Valentine’s Day on this weekend🌹. Despite the first greeting card creations of Hallmark Cards in 1913 and links to St Valentine, this European tradition actually has dark origins https://www.npr.org/2011/02/14/133693152/the-dark-origins-of-valentines-day

Please be aware we will be closed on #ValentinesDay this Sunday, 14 February 2021, due to the latest Stage 4 ‘circuit-breaker’ COVID19 restrictions announced yesterday (12 February 2021).

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 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.
