City Farm

City Farm is being created on a half hectare site in Sydney Park, St Peters.

The farm will be a place for food production, farmers markets, community participation, education, innovation and collaboration.

A pop-up farmers’ market is being held as a trial on Friday 22 and 29 January and Friday 5 February 2016.

A regular Sydney City Farm weekly farmers’ market is planned to start later in 2016. This market is an important part of the City Farm model. The farm will be a place for food production, community participation, education, innovation and collaboration.

We want to make sure that our farmers’ market meets the needs of the community in our timing, location, and product mix. Take our markets survey and give your feedback by Thursday 25 February 2015.

You can also sign up to City Farm e-news on the City's website.

    You especially want to learn about herb and vegie growing, organic gardening and green living.

    In response to your feedback, we'll be planning our first education programs to be short, and held on weekends and weekday evenings. We'll include hands-on experiences and the cost will be in line with what you indicated as fair value.


    We're always open to ideas for new programs and topics.
