Meet SO:ME Space, the sprawling retail precinct taking South Melbourne Market to another level

Words by Eva Marchingo

SO:ME Space first originated in 2011.

South Melbourne Market is one of Melbourne’s most iconic markets, but if you thought it was only about delicious things to eat and drink, think again. Introducing South Melbourne Market’s retail precinct, SO:ME Space.

Originating in 2011, SO:ME Space is dedicated to providing a home for a range of engaging design, fashion and creative pursuits. The unique retail concept has recently undergone an expansion to allow for even more permanent and pop-up stalls.

SO:ME Space’s pop-up stalls are used as business incubators for emerging small businesses, allowing them to trial a retail space. Rollie Shoes is one business that made their retail debut at the market and now continue to have a strong presence with a permanent stall.

Always on the lookout for new small businesses, SO:ME Space plays host to Melbourne’s most innovative and fresh designers with a focus on sustainability, handmade goods, and locally sourced and designed products.

The perfect destination for gift shopping, you can find a diverse range of fashion, jewellery, art and homewares to suit anyone. SO:ME Space is just one aspect of the sprawling South Melbourne Market – while you’re there, explore everything else the market has to offer, from bakeries to butchers, gelatarias, chocolateries and so much more.

South Melbourne Market is open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8am – 4pm (8am – 5pm on Fridays). Find out more about SO:ME Space here.
