On Thursday 17 July Macquarie Centre opened its Fresh Food Market, boasting an expansive range of new food and speciality retailers. This is the first stage of the $440 million redevelopment of the centre, which will be a one-stop-shop for local shoppers’ fresh food needs with over 37 retailers opening, 29 of which are new to Macquarie Centre.
The Fresh Food Market includes a new Coles and ALDI Food Store alongside a refurbished Woolworths, delivering Macquarie Centre the supermarket trifecta. Another highlight will be Japanese retailer, Daiso, which offers a huge variety of Japanese products all for just $2.80. The Fresh Food Market also includes market- style eateries such as Costis Seafood Market Macquarie, Inlakesh Living Foods and F & L Gourmet.
Macquarie Centre Manager Robert Caruana said: “To celebrate the opening weekend, we are hosting a four day fresh food festival, showcasing the incredible new offering to our shoppers. The must-see weekend of activities will feature cooking demonstrations, free food samples, and amazing floral and food displays that will be sure to invigorate shoppers’ senses. Make sure you come and visit us to experience everything our Fresh Food Market has to offer.”
This is the first of two stages in the $440 million redevelopment of Macquarie Centre, with the second stage opening later this year and delivering a new two level fashion galleria, featuring Australian and international designers and a two level David Jones.
The redevelopment of Macquarie Centre is part of a $2.8 billion program of shopping centre upgrades being implemented by manager AMP Capital Shopping Centres and its investors. On completion, Macquarie Centre will be the largest suburban shopping centre in New South
