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. Several years on and the future of the farm and its immediate neighbour, the magnificent Abbotsford Convent, are secure thanks to incredible community determination and significant support from market-goers.
Designated St Heliers Street carpark starts at $3, entry to the farm is $2 (children are free) and you can stay all day. We’re plastic bag free so please BYO reusable bags. The market is held on the second Saturday of the month.
