Pipeworks Market has settled into its new home in Thomastown, and marketing manager Peter Green said there is more to come for the iconic northern suburbs landmark.

First established in 1987, the Pipeworks Market was originally based in Campbellfield and quickly became the heart of the northern suburbs community.

The market closed in 2013 but is back and bigger than ever at its new location at 5 Dunstans Court, Thomastown.

The red carpet was rolled out on June 17 for the reopening of the market, a day that was jam packed with retailers and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Pipeworks Market manager Peter Dimarelos said the day brought the community together once again.

“The reopening was amazing, we managed to have a big crowd come through and enjoy all the things our market has to offer, from entertainment, activities and fresh produce,” he said.

“Everyone was just happy to be there, it was great.”

The market is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 4pm and stretches across an expansive 9,000-square-metre space, with hundreds of diverse stalls and thousands of parking spaces.

Mr Dimarelos said the market is continuing to grow week on week as it strives to deliver for the community.

“We really want people to come out and have a look at our new site. It is still a work in progress but we are here for the long run. Our attitude is to grow and make the market bigger and better every chance we get,” he said.

“The goal is to give value to people coming and to give families something to do on their weekends.

“There is definitely a nostalgia for the old market and the community has come back together because of it. There are lots of familiar faces but also lots of new faces. Hopefully we can remain as big of an icon as we were in the past.”
