Press Release from Station Street Markets
The Station Street Markets started life in the early 1980’s when the northern side of Subiaco was just industrial land with no infrastructure around the Market. Back then the Market was very rustic and full of characters reminiscent of the European gypsy travellers market.
Today, although Subiaco has grown dramatically, the market is very much an iconic location in Subiaco where the community comes together to meet, greet and partake in the international foods available.
The Station Street Markets Subiaco has over 60 unique stalls, some still owned by the original characters that came together since the birth of the market. Statistics and surveys undertaken by the City of Subiaco show that markets are a favourite treasured place to visit by the people of Subiaco and surrounding areas.
Currently the owner of the market has applied to the Metropolitan Regional Authority (MRA) to redevelop on the site of the market and build a shopping centre which will house Coles, Target, other retail outlets, and some offices.
As of December the 10th 2014, we have now been informed that the Redevelopment application lodged in August 2014 has been withdrawn, due to design issues.
The developer will meet again with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), in mid February 2015, to further consider the development application of the Station Street Markets.
The Subiaco Station Street Markets are now able to trade up until AT LEAST the middle of MARCH 2015.
In the meantime the Market will remain trading with no changes. All the stallholders are staying, trading, and giving their great services to all their loyal and regular customers as they always have.
Please show your support to the stall holders who are currently facing a big challenge and who want to serve you now and into the future.
The Station Street Markets is open for trading every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday Public Holidays 9am – 5:30pm (Fruit and Veg and selected stores commencing from 7:30am)
