New offerings at The District Docklands Market Lane

By Jack Hayes

While The District Docklands continues to expand, so too does the abundance of quality food offerings for shoppers. 

After welcoming Woolworths, Dan Murphy’s, MarketPlace Fresh and The Butcher Club Epicurean late last year, The District has now added Empire Asian Supermarket, one of largest of its kind in the CBD, as well as the delicious China Bar, which serves the most popular tastes from Malaysia, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, and lastly Magic Cuisine, an affordable take-home meal option.

Throughout March, Market Lane will welcome a host of new eateries and stores including a deli, pharmacy and seafood store, making sure you’ll never leave empty-handed.

Open seven days a week until 7pm, with Woolworths open until 10pm, Market Lane is an urban market indulging the senses and fostering a sense of community and place.

The District Docklands CEO George Karabatsos said he hoped Market Lane would transform the way city shoppers got their daily groceries. 

“We are thrilled to expand the offerings at Market Lane, fast becoming a go-to fresh food destination for Docklands and surrounding areas,” Mr Karabatsos said. 

“These new additions provide even more fresh food options for the local shopper, representing diverse flavours from all over the world.”

To make the experience even more comfortable, customers who spend $10 or more at Market Lane’s Woolworths, Dan Murphy’s or participating stores by validating their ticket are eligible for 90 minutes of free parking. 

Market Lane opened in October 2019 and is the largest supermarket-based, fresh food and convenience precinct within a 5km radius of Melbourne’s CBD. 

The $70 million development is an extension of The District Docklands, formerly known as Harbour Town. 

Spanning 9500 sqm and with 2250 car parks on site, Market Lane was designed by NH Architecture and Esquisse Design Studio.
