Hurstville Plaza could soon host a weekly farmers' market under a development application submitted to Georges River Council.
St George-based company, Kisari Farmers Market wants to establish a market at Hurstville Plaza every Thursday from 12 noon to 6pm.
There would be 20 food stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables as the primary focus.
Some stalls would also sell processed foods for takeaway and others will sell food for immediate consumption.
COVID safety measures will be in place in the markets including hand sanitising stations and social distancing protocols.
The markets will provide social, economic and employment benefits, the DA's Statement of Environmental Effects said.
"The market will provide a valuable weekly community. It will provide a beneficial social impact which also has a beneficial economic, flow-on effect to other businesses in the area, bringing customers from outside to Hurstville. The market offers employment to the local youths of the community.
"The proposed development is considered to be in the wider public interest and has received considerable support from Georges River Council. The market has more than 150,000 Facebook and Instagram followers."
Hurstville Plaza has been the venue for other successful markets in recent years including the Eat/Art Night markets in 2019 and its popular Christmas markets.
