Award Winning

We are thrilled to have been voted Australia’s Outstanding Farmers’ Market at the 2010 delicious magazine national Produce Awards. “The Collingwood Children’s Farm farmers’ market is unquestionably one of the most popular in the country,” says Jane Adams of the Australian Farmers’ Market Association. Established in 2002, the community-owned market brings more than 50 Victorian producers to inner-city Melbourne on the second Saturday of each month, and was one of the first farmers’ markets to be accredited for authenticity in May 2010.

Market goodies include: Delicious leisurely breakfast, lunch, coffee, pancakes, fruit juices mmm.... farm fresh & organic seasonal fruit, vegetables, seedlings, herbs, juices, breads, olive oil, free range eggs, meat & chooks, smoked fish, home made condiments, flowers, artisan cheeses & much more....

Great for young families as you can combine your food shopping with a visit to the Collingwood Children's Farm. Entry: $2 per adult & children free. Allows entry to the Collingwood Children's Farm for the whole day! Real food from over 50 Victorian producers direct to you. Plus the Collingwood Children's Farm's own fresh seasonal produce for sale at the Farm's stall, Pancakes cooked by our own volunteers and Fragrant, Floral Tussie Mussies from our beautiful gardens.

BYO trolley, basket and bags. Parking: Designated St Heliers Street carpark is a $2 donation to assist with upgrade and maintenance.

 

Nestled in a bend on the Yarra, the inner city farm is a Melbourne treasure, just 4kms from the CBD . Melbourne ’s first farmers’ market started here in October 2002 in part as a revenue and profile raiser for the imminent danger of losing the Farm to a housing development.

Four years on and the fight is only just won thanks to incredible community determination and significant support from market goers. The costs of maintaining the integrity of the area for the community are ongoing, and borne largely by the Farm in conjunction with its immediate neighbour in the precinct, the magnificent Abbotsford Convent.

Public awareness and contribution to the financial struggle is still an urgent issue.
