Scentre Group announced the first stage of its $475 million Westfield Miranda re-development will open on Thursday 16 October 2014 with the official unveiling of the new fresh food market. The new space on level one will transform Westfield Miranda into the epicentre of gourmet convenience in Sydney’s south.

Market-inspired stalls with crates of fresh food, expert food providores such as Pane Vinno Proscuitteria, a state-of-the art demonstration kitchen with live cooking demonstrations and daily-fresh produce on offer will deliver a true foodie experience to the daily shop. 

The new fresh food market will feature 18 speciality suppliers including  fresh meats (Pryde Meats), seafood (Costi’s), poultry (Miranda Chicken),  fruit and vegetables (Fruitezy), baked goods from Bannos Brownies and Sourdough Bakery, wines and international cuisines as well as a brand new Woolworths supermarket.  

Kate Holsgrove, Scentre Group Regional Manager said, “We are excited to welcome shoppers to the first stage of the Westfield Miranda redevelopment on October 16. The farmer’s market-style fresh food precinct will offer shoppers the most comprehensive selection of fresh and exotic foods in Sydney’s south with the convenience of a 90 minute express parking area. 

“In redeveloping Westfield Miranda we have considered the culture, lifestyles and aspirations of our shoppers to create an inviting fresh food market that the Shire will love. The new precinct will appeal to foodies, families and the health conscious – whether they are picking up a few quick items for dinner or meandering around the market stalls and sampling the fare”, says Kate Holsgrove. 

To celebrate the launch, the new fresh food market will host a festival of activities from 16 October 2014 including:

  • Cooking demonstrations from chefs and retailers 
  • World-renowned author of ‘I Quit Sugar’ Sarah Wilson, appearing Saturday 18 October 2014
