Collingwood Children's Farm
Nestled in a bend on the Yarra, the inner city Collingwood Children's 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 Children's Farm to a housing development.
Many years on and the fight is won thanks to incredible community determination and significant support from market goers. The market itself is a perfect example of the power of accredited farmers' markets to shape and strengthen links between communities.
With between 60 - 70 stall holders attending each market, you will find all the fresh local produce you need. Pick up seasonal fruit and vegetables, bread, eggs, meat, dairy poultry, pasta, jams & preserves, flowers and much more!
