Collingwood Farmers Market is held at Collingwood Children’s Farm on the 2nd Saturday of every month!

When you shop at Collingwood Farmers Market, you’ll have the unique opportunity to meet the person responsible for your food and directly support their livelihood. In a time of supermarket duopolies, shopping at an accredited Farmers Markets gives you the opportunity to make a real difference.

The farmers and producers who attend Collingwood Farmers Market are accredited with the Victorian Farmers Markets Association, which means they have genuinely grown, reared, caught, baked or made the food they are selling.

History

Melbourne’s first Farmers Market started here in October 2002 in part as a revenue and profile raiser in response to an imminent danger of losing Collingwood Children’s Farm to developers. What started as a small project blossomed quickly into a thriving market thanks to the incredible community determination and significant support from market goers.

Happily, the Farm is no longer in danger and the market still remains!

You can find all the fresh local produce you will need. Pick up seasonal fruit and vegetables, bread, eggs, free range meat, dairy and poultry; pasta, jams & preserves, flowers and much more!

The market is accredited by the Victorian Farmers’ Market Association so you can be sure all stall holders are the growers and makers of the goods they sell. This means no wholesalers, no big business, and that the profits are going straight back to regional communities.

Melbourne Farmers Markets is a not for profit social enterprise dedicated to Victorian food and producers, regional food cultures, seasonal produce, biodiversity, sustainable farming practices and strengthening relationships between the consumer and the producer.
