The famous Rocklea Markets has submitted a development application to Brisbane City Council to develop and host night markets at its main trading area.

The plan calls for the addition of market stalls, food trucks and live entertainment from 4:00 p.m. up to 10:00 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.

The proposal involves development on a 9,180-square-metre area. This is part of the 153,058 square metre site where the Brisbane Markets operates.

Brisbane Markets has been operating at the site at Sherwood Road, Rocklea since 1964. Currently, there are five selling floors and 28 warehouses serving the Saturday and Sunday markets.

Market Expansion Makes Sense

Brisbane Markets is made up of a produce market, a flower market and a marketplace. On Saturdays, Brisbane Markets offers the biggest fresh food and lifestyle market in Brisbane. The Fresh Markets attracts more than 7,000 shoppers every Saturday, thanks to over 220 stalls offering fresh produce, including fresh fruits and veggies, meats, flowers, bread and deli goods.

During Sundays, Brisbane Markets turn into a haven for bargain hunters. The Sunday Discovery Markets with more than 380 stalls selling everything from new and used items, books, toys, collectibles, home renovation products and so much more.

The introduction of a weekend night market is a logical move for the successful market place.

Should the plan be approved by the council, Brisbane Markets will potentially get a good share of the successful night food truck market in Brisbane.

The Brisbane Markets application will be assessed by the council under the City Plan. Among the factors that would be considered are parking allocation, noise and solution to flooding.
