Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen that causes the often-fatal disease listeriosis. We present here the complete genome sequences of six L. monocytogenes isolates of sequence type 9 (ST9) collected from two different meat processing facilities in Norway. The genomes were assembled using Illumina and Nanopore sequencing data.
