Coronavirus update – we’re open with change

Dandenong Market COVID-19 FAQs

Dandenong Market has been the soul of the city for 154 years. We’re committed to fulfilling this role by supporting our community through these challenging times.
In response to the most recent outbreak of COVID-19 and in order to do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy, we’re temporarily making a few changes.
Dandenong Market remains open for business. However, due to Government restrictions, we’ve made some temporary changes. Please read below for more information.
Please note: you must check in when shopping at the Market. QR codes are placed at each stall for your convenience.
Do you have other questions? We hope we’ve answered them here:
Which stalls are open?
All Dandenong Market food traders are open. This includes produce stalls, butchers, fishmongers, delicatessens, pantry and grocery items and bakeries.
All ready-to-eat traders, cafes and restaurants are open for takeaway only.
Under the current lockdown requirements, all non-food businesses including Bazaar traders, florists, nurseries, pet shops, newsagents and key cutters will close from Friday 6 August.
Are Market Square and the Northern Food Court open?

Limited seating is available in Market Square and the Northern Food Court at this time.
Is the playground open?

How can I contact the Market?

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria, the Market Management office is closed. Please leave us a detailed message via info@dandenongmarket.com.au. Additionally, you can visit the Traders section of the website to contact your favourite traders directly.

What about hygiene?
We have intensified our cleaning regimen by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch areas in the Market.
We have increased our supply of cleaning and personal hygiene supplies to meet demands.
We have also moved to use stronger anti-viral disinfectants and added signage throughout the Market. This is to remind customers as well as traders of proper handwashing techniques in English, basic Chinese and Arabic.
We are doubling the number of our cleaners to increase sanitising of surfaces, bathrooms and other frequently touched items such as door handles and ATM machines.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services website is a great location to find the latest information or the Federal Government’s Department of Health website, both of which are being updated regularly.

Are masks mandatory?
Masks are mandatory while indoors and outdoors in Victoria. As Dandenong Market is an indoor venue, you must wear a mask while visiting unless you have a medical exemption.
Will tours go ahead?
During the lockdown, tours will be paused.
Once tours re-commence please do not attend your tour if you are suffering from flu-like symptoms, are waiting for a Covid-19 test, or have been in contact with a positive case of Covid-19.
All tour participants must wear a mask while walking around the Market and may remove their masks to eat and drink.  
How are you managing physical distancing?
We appreciate this is a concern. We are encouraging all customers to respect physical distancing directives by maintaining a physical distance of 1.5 metres in our outdoor areas. This includes our Fruit and Vegetable sheds and Market Square. For all other areas of the Market, we ask customers to keep at least four square metres from each other.
To help customers comply with all physical distancing directives, we will control queuing at our ATMs with markers at appropriate distances on the ground. ATM screens and touchpads will be regularly sanitised).
Our current overhead messages about physical distancing play at least eight times each hour and recorded with more volume than all other messages.
We are monitoring foot traffic hourly.
Some traders offer contactless payment (pay wave) over cash and other payment options.
Many of our traders use ticketing systems to allow customers to maintain a safe distance while serving them in order.
Please respect the personal space of others and practice good hygiene by washing hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds
