Built in 1880, the Meat Market is a grade one heritage-listed building with enormous character and history. The cobbled bluestone floor in the main hall and the barrel vault ceiling hark back to a time when it was operated as a commercial meat market. In more recent history it was purchased as a derelict building by the Hamer Government in 1977 and relaunched as the Meat Market Craft and Events Centre in 1979. After closing in 2001 for redevelopment it reopened as the Meat Market in 2004 to operate as a multi-genre contemporary arts and event space.

Located in North Melbourne, the Meat Market offers a wide range of spaces suitable for a number of uses including performances, events, conferences, filming and rehearsals.
