Local businesses have been the beating heart of Braybrook and the broader Maribyrnong Council, spoiling residents with friendly service and unique goods at every turn – in fact, it’s one of the reasons why Melburnians are choosing to call Stockland Orion home.

With the impacts of COVID-19 being felt across the country in many ways, our local businesses have been hit particularly hard. Now, as restrictions ease and normal life returns, the good news is that locals can get back amongst the foodie culture and celebrate our iconic local businesses!

But with so many businesses in the area, where will you start? Thankfully, Maribyrnong Council have created a fantastic interactive map of the many local businesses that are open and ready to treat you with that friendly service once again! It’s a really handy way to explore all of the amazing cafes, restaurants, retail and general stores you may not be familiar with.

If you’re into the foodie culture it’s the perfect way to plan your social calendar. Did you know that Brother Nancy has revealed a new Mushroom Ragu that looks perfect for a warm weekday breakfast, or that Cupcakes by Paolo can do the best custom buttercream cupcakes in town – perhaps a great way to spoil the family.

Or if you’re wanting to keep your finger on the pulse of restriction-friendly events that are happening in the area, there is no better spot to find them! With a variety of business, social events and even outdoor pop-up eateries listed on the #loveyourlocalmari website you’ll have all the information you need to start exploring your local community once more.

These are just a couple of the businesses you can discover on the Maribyrnong Council #loveyourlocalmari website. So, where to first?!
