Collingwood Children’s Farm Farmers Market, our ‘first born’, missed out on celebrating its 18th birthday like so many milestones in 2020. The market was established as our part of the response to a proposed housing development that would have changed the St Heliers precinct forever and the market has since been publicly credited for saving the Farm – we, as a community achieved this together!
This Saturday the market springs back to life, nestled by the river amongst the eucalypts, just a few kms from the CBD. You can shop direct in the open air from Victorian farmers and small-scale producers, many who attended on day one such as Eureka Coffee, Schulz Dairy, Jonella Farm and Jones Potatoes.
Along with Carlton & Abbotsford Convent, this market makes up our Yarra Market Loop, offering farm direct shopping options almost every weekend in the Yarra neighbourhood.
Come for the market, grab a picnic and stay for the day. It’s just $2 entry before 1pm.
