What is the purpose of the
Footscray Traders Association?

The purpose of the Footscray Traders Association is twofold and connected:

  • To represent retail and commercial businesses throughout Footscray,
  • To promote Footscray as a great place to trade, shop and live.

How do we do this?

  • By communicating with Council or Government as a representative body,
  • By promoting Footscray businesses to the local and wider community,
  • By facilitating connections between Footscray Traders,
  • By the sharing of information.
