Flour Mill Markets Are Open!

Back for the 3rd Sunday since reopening, the Flour Mill Markets will be on this Sunday 21 June from 9am-1pm and for every second Sunday going forward!

Keeping in line with the government’s current guidelines, only fresh produce and food stall holders will be operating for the present time. Food that is ready to eat will be available, but as takeaway only.

Please read the following guidelines we are implementing in the interests of our vendors and customers’ health:

  • hand sanitisers are available to be used on entry and exit
  • contactless payments systems are in use – no cash please!
  • vendors will wear gloves
  • gatherings of more than 10 people are not allowed
  • surfaces are sanitised every 30 minutes
  • customers are reminded to stand 1.5m apart

It’s great to be able to provide our community with fantastic food options again and to continue to showcase our amazing team of local makers, growers and creators. The other non-food market vendors you have come to love will be back as soon as it is safe.

We look forward to seeing you again this Sunday 21 June – Don’t forget to bring along your shopping bags and reusable cups!

Flour Mill of Summer Hill Markets Return Sunday 24 May!

We’re excited to announce that the Flour Mill Markets are returning Sunday 24 May from 9am – 1pm!
In line with government guidelines, only fresh produce and food will be available. Ready to eat food will be available as takeaway only.

Part of the motivation for our relaunch now is to provide our community with access to great food options again, but the other part is to give our amazing team of makers, growers and creators an outlet to share their products with the world, after spending months without one.

We’ll of course be taking measures to social distance like spacing out stalls, installing temporary queue markers. We’ll also be installing sanitiser stations and all vendors will be cash free and contactless!

But we’ll need your help too. We suggest only one shopper per family comes down, keep 1.5 metres apart, avoid touching fruit and veggies if you don’t intend to buy them and avoid gathering inside the stalls.

We can’t wait to see you all again and thanks so much for supporting your local vendors in this time.

Flour Mill Markets: COVID-19 Response

Protecting Our Local community – Flour Mill Markets Shut This Weekend

We regretfully advise the Flour Mill Markets will be closed again this weekend due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are working on a plan with vendors, the Inner West Council and relevant regulators to deliver a safe environment for our stallholders, patrons and staff, by taking extra precautions. These may include – no tastings, removal of non-essential seating, enhanced cleaning and the provision of hand sanitisers. We are keen to continue delivering the Flour Mill Markets to support our vendors and provide supplies for our community, which ultimately financially supports NSW producers.

We appreciate your patience in the meantime and will keep you updated on when the markets will resume.
