IT was the third occasion when Fresh Markets Australia (FMA) and the Central Markets Association of Australia (CMAA) held naming rights to the 2019 Hort Connections Tradeshow under the banner "Australia's Fresh Produce Markets".

The Melbourne Market was right in the thick of this trade show through wholesaler displays in the FMA/CMAA booth which had the largest presence on the trade show floor.

The event, held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, greeted delegates with a great variety of produce from those exhibiting in the section of the trade show.
