The owner of the majority of the market last week threatened to close the market: https://www.theage.com.au/politics/victoria/preston-market-owners-threaten-to-shut-it-down-over-planning-war-20230529-p5dc6d.html
This is an about face. There are many articles in the press, one example below, where a variety of representatives of Salta Properties, including Sam Tarascio have promised the market would not be closed. We cannot trust this man who has no regard for the market or the community. The market can only be saved by acquisition and placing it in public hands, managed by a community representative committee.
