COLLINGWOOD CHILDRENS FARM - ACCREDITED FARMERS MARKET
|Telephone:||0429 146 627|
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.
