The MFM Kitchen is onsite with Alphington Farmers Market, next door to Melbourne Innovation Centre, and directly opposite Alphington Train Station – making it easier to establish or grow your business.  To assist your business, as part of a kitchen booking, the MFM team can:

  • offer ongoing dry and cold goods storage at MFM Depot
  • arrange onsite parking on your production days; and you can negotiate food truck storage on site as well
  • connections to Victorian wholesale producers/suppliers of quality fresh ingredients
  • assistance to become a Victorian Farmers Market accredited business and opportunities to be a stallholder at a MFM Farmers Market


MFM Kitchen is perfect for small businesses that share our values:

  • a commitment to use Victorian produce whenever possible and reduce food wastage
  • avoid use of non recyclable plastic storage containers; and use reusable/recyclable food packaging
  • use organically based cleaning materials whenever possible; and a pack down and clean routine that does not rely on excessive use of water (and biowaste) being flushed down the kitchen gulley trap

MFM Kitchen is open Sunday to Friday.  The usual access hours are from 8.30am to 5.30pm; and times to suit hosting a workshop are negotiable based on your event.
