Our History

Supporting independent market traders since 1976

The Belconnen Fresh Food Markets were once home to over 20 of Canberra’s finest  food providores. After more than 40 years supporting local businesses, farmers, and serving the Canberra community, the market has a new lease on life reopening as Capital Food Market in 2023.

Today we’re still as passionate as ever about fresh food.

The new Capital Food Market showcases leading fresh food providers, while offering locals and visitors an exciting new dining destination to be enjoyed all year round.


We’re committed to prioritising sustainability for a better future.

From the outset, energy efficiency has been at the heart of the Market’s design, we’re proud to have included thermal temperature control and solar electricity generation.
