Eileen Fielderling, Docklands Sunday Market founder, was acknowledged for her contribution to the community and awarded a Lord Mayor Commendation on June 27.

Eileen was chosen with reference to her work in Docklands since 2009, when she first envisioned a collectors’ market for the suburb.

The market has grown since then into a broad-ranged variety market on NewQuay Promenade. It includes arts and crafts, fair trade, beauty products and delicious food.

She was recognised in a cohort of 40 other small businesses from the City of Melbourne.

“I often say our small businesses are the lifeblood of our Melbourne’s economy, so I’m delighted to honour them and highlight their vital place in our city,” Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.

“Small businesses make up more than 80 per cent of all the businesses operating in our city, employing almost 80,000 people.”
